There are many steps to enhancing the green initiatives in your business, including:
Increase Energy Efficiency – Energy efficient devices are a great way to lower the amount of energy that your office consumes without making a significant change to policy. When devices are not in use they are much better at conserving energy, helping to save each month from your utility costs! All of our devices are setup with sleep modes activated before they are even delivered, ensuring that you are not overspending on utilities that aren’t necessary.
Lower Consumption of Paper – By reducing the amount of paper that your office uses every month, you not only reduce your impact on the environment, but can also see significant improvements on your office’s supply costs. Unmanaged printing can equal upwards of 1-3% of your office’s annual budget, meaning you are missing out on one of the most significant cost saving areas in your business. Another tactic that we utilize on all of our systems before they are delivered is the automatic setup to print duplex, or print on both sides of the page to further reduce paper consumption.
