Reducing emissions in the workplace with the help of technology

With environmental impact near the top of the agenda for most companies today, a sustainable approach to organisational operations is essential.

Our Workplace Technology team have been working closely with our clients to help analyse and reduce carbon emissions in the office environment by implementing various practices and technology solutions.

Some key areas which are proving to have a positive impact on sustainability in the workplace include:

Consolidation of existing printer & photocopier (MFD) fleet – reviewing and reducing print hardware in line with current and future ways of working. This has a positive impact both in terms of carbon reduction and expenditure.

Business process automation – reviewing and digitising manual, paper-based processes to reduce print consumption and enhance operational efficiencies. Our recent blog post on digital transformation highlights some key areas and processes we can help to automate, which can be viewed here. Any remaining necessary print consumption can be offset utilising PrintReleaf to reforest trees in projects globally.

Upgrading legacy print hardware – replacing older print hardware with new, energy efficient print hardware, both Ricoh & HP are the two leading manufacturers in terms of energy usage and sustainability. Our team can analyse existing expenditure and carbon emission data of existing print hardware and provide reports to show the savings that can be achieved across the business by upgrading older photocopiers and printers to new, energy efficient models.

Circular economy, toner recycling – a service we provide to ensure old toner, parts and IT equipment are being recycled and re-purposed in partnership with Ricoh, HP and Brother.

Introduction of a workplace management solution – Bizquip work closely with Flowscape, a leading workplace management solution provider which enables clients to manage their workplace efficiently. Flowscape enables users to book desks & meeting spaces and car spaces, allowing organisations to reduce energy usage based on live occupancy data (highlighted in a recent blog post here) in the office at any given time.

Thes solutions highlighted doesn’t necessarily mean there is a need for initial capital expenditure, we have finance options available across all our Workplace Technology solutions, that can show reductions in operational costs.

Our team can outline the return on investment and show savings in most cases.

Additionally, we can provide measurable data, including carbon calculations and reductions to help make informed decisions and reduce expenditure across the organisation.
