Is your workplace being as energy efficient as it can be? Here are some tips to get you started...
- Reduce paper consumption by minimising the use of full-page cover sheets for fax transmission. Stick-on labels placed on the first page of the fax message not only reduce the amount of energy and paper used, but can also save on telephone charges.
- Look for printers with a double-sided printing option.
- ENERGY STAR compliant fax machines can scan double-sided pages. This will reduce both your copying and paper costs.
- Purchase a photocopier that's the right size for you. A mid-volume copier installed in a low-volume office can use 70% more energy per page than an efficient low-volume copier.
- Set your photocopier to automatically default to making one- to two-sided copies to ensure that the duplexing feature is used.
- Run copies together in batches to reduce energy consumption by decreasing the time your copier spends in high-power mode.
- Use recycled paper, preferably with at least 20% post-consumer recycled content.
- Consider using recycled toner cartridges to reduce the flow of solid waste that ends up in the nation's landfills.
- Even if your equipment has no energy saving features, you can still save power by switching it off when it's not in use.

Greenfleet exists to make a difference, not a profit.
Greenfleet is a non-profit organisation, encouraging people to avoid and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and then offset any remaining emissions by planting biodiverse native forests through Greenfleet’s tax deductible offset program.
With the help of Greenfleet’s voluntary offset program, you can easily reduce your car’s impact on the environment. For less than the price of a tank of fuel, Greenfleet will plant Australian native trees as part of a biodiverse forest to offset the emissions of an average medium car for one year. The resulting forests will also tackle salinity, reduce soil erosion, improve water quality and provide essential habitat for native wildlife.
Greenfleet also plants native forests to offset the emissions generated by air travel, household and business energy use.
Visit Greenfleet's website to find out how you can make a positive difference for the environment.
