Sustainability isn’t just good for the planet; it can be good for you too. According to a study conducted by Quocirca1, 41% of respondents report that sustainability is extremely important to business performance, and this is set to rise to 68% by 2025. And the decision-makers of the future (the under-35s) are the most likely to have net zero goals and to report that these are influential when they are choosing suppliers. Are you ready to open your doors to sustainability, and the opportunities that follow?
Offset the Environmental Impact of Printing
We have the tools and expertise to make your business more sustainable and efficient. It starts with device management to optimize your print infrastructure with energy-efficient devices. We can also use print policies, pull printing, and content management to reduce paper and lower costs. Finally, our reforestation and carbon offset programs are a way to return trees to the forests and offset the carbon emitted from paper production. The best part? Each of these four phases is as beneficial to you as is to the environment.
Going green across these four categories can impact your company and the environment.
Discover tools that improve resource utilization through energy efficient devices. The Xerox®Environment Product List identifies the ecolabels our devices have earned including Energy Star, Blue Angel and EPEAT. And by participating in the Xerox® Supplies Return Program (Xerox Green World Alliance), you can reduce your environmental footprint and enable valuable natural resources to be used again.
When it comes to printing we’ll guide you to lower costs and less waste. The Xerox® Workplace Suite/Cloud for example helps you manage your ROI by greatly reducing print that goes uncollected. You can also increase security and set print policies, like automatic duplex. The Xerox® Print Awareness Tool uses gamification to encourage responsible printing and reduce waste.
Our content platforms can automate and digitize your workflows to cut down on paper usage. The Xerox® DocuShare® Content Management Platform helps you organize documents in the cloud so staff can easily access the information they need to collaborate, make informed decisions and get things done. And our range of Xerox® ConnectKey® Apps will automate and digitize many paper-intensive processes to accelerate efficiency and of course, save paper.
Reforestation and Carbon Offset Services
The PrintReleaf program makes it easy to offset greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from printing while contributing to global reforestation efforts. Through a direct connection, your page volume data can be automatically fed to PrintReleaf software. PrintReleaf reverse-calculates how many trees were required and how much carbon was emitted for the paper consumed.
Biomass offset: Trees are automatically replanted at certified global reforestation projects of your choice.
Carbon offsets: Certified Carbon credits are purchased to offset carbon emissions associated with manufacturing the paper.
