The emissions reduction of 32 percent is aimed to be improved to 50 percent by 2020, with the help of the MPS programme installed by HP. The controlling of print emissions throughout Logica UK’s 6,000 print users in 23 locations has already attained the aforementioned reduction, with the company’s fleet reduced by “eliminating many personal printers and introducing multifunction printers”.
As a result, Logica UK saw its printing fall from 16 million prints in 2006 to 9.7 million in 2011, a 65 percent reduction. In turn, the carbon emissions related to paper fell from 407 tonnes in 2006 to 133 tonnes in 2011. The company cites the “greater overall effiency” and the “use of remote management” in terms of powering down devices as having enabled the reductions.
The programme’s original target was a six percent reduction each year, but by 2010 the figure had increased to 10 percent per year,
Arlette Anderson, UK Head of Health, Safety and Environment at Logica, stated: “As an organisation committed to reducing our carbon footprint, we are delighted with the results that HP has so far helped us to achieve.
“This has been a long term initiative and by printing more efficiently, HP has helped us realise the significant cost and business benefits that can be made. We still have a long way to go but believe we will achieve our 50 per cent target”.
Bruno Zago, Environmental Manager for HP EMEA, added: “Our expertise in providing efficient and environmental enterprise printing solutions have helped to make Logica’s commendable 2020 target seem ever more reachable.
“Printing constitutes a major part of any company’s carbon footprint, and our cutting-edge print technology can help to greatly reduce that.”
