  • A Sustainable Print Agenda

    A Sustainable Print Agenda

    By Louella Fernandes and Clive Longbottom


    With pressure mounting on organisations to reduce their environmental impact, sustainability is still high on the corporate IT agenda, despite the challenging economy.

    Although interest in green IT is growing, the impact of printing is often overlooked. However, left uncontrolled, it can be a huge source of waste – both financial and environmental.

    A “less-paper” office based on an optimised print infrastructure can be a prime enabler for sustainability.

    Using intelligent print management and document workflow tools can enable organisations to significantly reduce their environmental impact while cutting costs, driving operational efficiency and improving regulatory compliance.
