73 percent of UK workers “print less” than last year

73 percent of UK workers “print less” than last year

September 21, 2011

The poll, undertaken in August and involving 200 workers,  found that 73 percent of those surveyed were printing fewer emails, 53 percent were cutting their printing of general business and marketing documents, and 41 percent had printed less financial information than previously.

However, only 23 percent of those polled actually noticed print warnings (such as “please think twice about printing this message”), whilst 63 percent of workers said they often forgot to change settings to be more economical with their print jobs, such as duplex printing.

When asked about the possibilities of a paperless office, over 43 percent of works said that they believed it was a possibility, but that it might not ever come to fruition. One third of those surveyed added that they would like for the paperless office to become a reality, and would help to achieve it.

On printing costs, the survey found several other interesting statistics. 40 percent of workers believed better print management would allow financial and environmental savings, whilst 70 percent revealed that paper in their offices was recycled when not used. 55 percent of people added that cost was a determining factor in printer purchasing.

Gary Bourland, country general manager for Lexmark UK & Ireland, said: “Over the past five years, there has been a real global drive for workers, manufacturers and suppliers to act more responsibly to help save the environment and ensure that it is sustainable for the generations to come.

“The movement towards reducing carbon footprint has been combined with the impact from the recession which has led organisations of all sizes to look at making cost savings, which include the potential implementation of a managed print service in larger enterprises.”
