Do you commonly practice sustainability in your office? A green office is about much more than just switching off the lights, lowering the thermostat or tossing your empty water bottle into the recycling bin. Going green at an enterprise level is a multi-faceted process that can be helped by partnering with a Managed Print Services (MPS) provider.
Let’s look at a few of the environmental benefits of partnering with an MPS provider:
A Managed Print Services provider will conduct a thorough assessment of your current print environment and practices. They will measure everything from printer usage and efficiency, to recycling practices and energy use, to gauge where you are currently and pinpoint areas of waste.
Next, they’ll work to optimize your printer fleet. Old, obsolete, technology can be extremely inefficient in terms of energy and consumables use. An MPS provider will work with you to consolidate your existing fleet and, where necessary, upgrade your devices to the latest technology to help reduce energy and waste, cut your costs and lower your carbon footprint.
Gaining control of your paper usage can provide immediate long-lasting benefits. Did you know:
- The average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of paper annually
- 45% of these documents end up in the trash before the end of the workday
- In the past 20 years, paper use in the U.S. alone has increased 126% from 92 tons annually to over 208 tons!
A Managed Print Services provider can help you to reduce your paper use by implementing a document management system that will not only reduce your reliance on paper - it will reduce your energy use and waste, and improve your workflow. Scanning hardcopies to digital means easy accessibility and better security.
