Businesses such as solicitors’ firms, accountants, schools, architects, retail and manufacturing still rely heavily on paper. While being paperless may be your goal, it may not always attainable. But, there are steps you can take to work towards being more environmentally conscious by optimising how you manage your office printing and scanning to help reduce paper consumption and meet crucial sustainability targets.

The Benefits of Sustainable Managed Print

Busy offices generate a lot of paperwork, leading to a high level of paper consumption which can be not only be costly to you and unfriendly to the environment, it can also have an impact on business efficiency.

The benefits to you of sustainable managed print include:

  • Meeting sustainability and internal Corporate Social Responsibility targets
  • Improved security, data protection and compliance ensures adherence to GDPR, Microsoft Cyber Essentials and is a prerequisite to various accreditations.
  • Lowering costs and improving efficiency across your entire print ecosystem as part of wider business productivity and cost-saving projects
  • Keeping commitments to government-backed paperless schemes (the NHS paperless initiative for example)


What you can do to help achieve sustainability goals within your print environment

Print management tools

Reduce print waste by over 20% by implementing a print management solution across your print environment. Cut down on uncollected documents and multiple document revisions and drafts with a secure pull print solution. Introduce rules to help conserve consumables and energy, as well as helpful on-device tooltips and reminders for users on how to print more sustainably.
