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.
