People the world over are becoming increasingly attuned to the needs of the global environment and the pressures being placed on our natural resources by our modern lifestyles. This sentiment is gaining momentum in the corporate sector, as businesses step up to make a difference and reduce their environmental impacts. 93 percent of CEOs now believe that sustainability will be critical to the success of their business in the future. Since 1996, the number of Australian companies issuing sustainability reports has increased more than tenfold to 36 percent of firms, with a further 19 percent intending to do so soon.1
Case studies from virtually every industry show that it’s possible to develop green initiatives that will make a real contribution to both the environment and your bottom line. What’s more, these efforts often deliver other benefits, including improvements in employee morale, customer loyalty and brand image.
Fuji Xerox Australia is committed to sustainability, both in terms of reducing our own environmental impacts, and helping our customers to do the same.
How can you help your organisation on the environmentally responsible path to a sustainable future that makes business sense?
Assess and set goals
Assessing your printing and document processes will establish a baseline of your current environmental impact. The Fuji Xerox Environmental Footprint Calculator can estimate the full range of environmental benefits from an optimised print fleets from energy efficiency and waste reduction to the impacts of the paper you use. Measuring and communicating the environmental benefits associated with the changes you are making can greatly assist in securing employee buy–in. Using these tools can help you to create compelling reasons for change and support a smooth transition. Once you have established a baseline of current printing operations and their impact, it’s time to turn that information into an action plan.
