For 40 years, Bizquip have been one of Irelands largest managed print service providers, supporting small businesses to enterprise organisations nationwide.
Over the last number of years in particular, our team have taken various steps to ensure we are making an ongoing positive impact on the environment, both internally and for our clients.
A huge part of this focus has gone towards our managed print offering. We are proud to work so closely with global market leading manufacturers in the print industry, such as Ricoh, HP and Brother, all of which have really strong environmental and sustainability goals and strategies in place.
According to Quocirca’s latest study on print sustainablity trends , 77% of businesses are accelerating sustainability initiatives, with 62% saying sustainability is important to business performance now, and 85% believing it will be important by 2025.
Our sustainable Managed Print offering ensures that our clients can have a net positive impact on the environment when it comes to their office printing, and here are some examples how:
Offsetting paper consumption by planting trees: Bizquip works closely with PrintReleaf to measure our clients paper consumption and provide certified reforesting projects to help achieve a net neutral or net positive impact on the environment. This can be introduced to any existing or new printing solution.
HP CarbonNeutral print hardware certifications: HP have introduced HP CarbonNeutral product certifications which are available for all print hardware that Bizquip supply and support, our team include these certifications for all new print hardware provided at no additional cost to our clients.
Toner recycling: Bizquip provides toner and parts recycling in partnership with our manufacturing partners to contribute towards the circular economy.
Less plastic, more recycled materials: Ricoh’s new range of A3 photocopiers (MFDS) use 54% less plastic packaging than previous ranges, with 50% post-consumer recycled plastics used in the MFD and 100% recycled plastic used in their toner bottles leading to a 17% less carbon footprint across the lifeline of the product.
There are plenty of other ways in which our team at Bizquip are helping our clients on their sustainability journey through our managed print service offering, including print management software like Papercut, which we recently highlighted the benefits of here.
Bizquip are also delighted to have recently joined the HP as a catalyst partner to help create lasting, positive change for the planet, our people, and the communities where we live, work and do business.
Our Workplace Technology team have also recently undergone training to provide carbon calculations for clients on their current print infrastructure, which shows existing carbon emissions, costs involved and recommendations on how to lower both.
