Quocirca's survey revealed that European organisations have a long way to go in improving sustainability of their print environment and will therefore continue to experience wasteful printing, excessive paper consumption and high energy consumption through the use of outdated or redundant devices. Many are overlooking simple measures they can take, such as adopting energy-efficient devices and enforcing duplex printing across their organisations.
As few SMBs have the skills or resources to optimise and manage their print environment, using an MPS provider ensures that they can maximise the benefits of operating a managed print environment. Businesses that have adopted MPS are already addressing cost reduction imperatives and sustainability goals. Through MPS, an organisation can reduce the carbon footprint of printing by cutting energy consumption, reducing paper usage and streamlining the recycling and end-of-life disposal of hardware and cartridges.
Ultimately, a sustainable print infrastructure will not only improve an organisation's environmental credentials, it will also reduce costs, improve productivity and reduce risk.
