Data from Epson shows switching printers can have environmental benefits

Data has found that each year, Epson business inkjet technology could save European organisations 1.8 billion Kwh in energy consumption, cut costs by €213m (£179m), reduce CO2 emissions by 236 million KGs and reduce printing waste.

According to Epson, businesses that switch from one type of printer technology to a modern alternative could remove 636 million KGs of CO2 each year – in Kwh, these savings could be redeployed to power 1.2 million electric cars each year.

Darren Phelps, vice president of business at Epson Europe says: “Making a small change to an often-overlooked piece of equipment could have substantial economic results. Minimising the total cost of print and its environmental impact, while addressing human benefits are all advantages enabled by our heat-free printing technology.

“The real impact though is in the resulting business or human benefits. In education and healthcare we’re freeing up invaluable resources to invest back into our children’s education and our health provisions, while in sectors such as retail and corporate, our innovations are being used to reduce environmental impact, improve customers experiences, drive sales and enable new, smarter ways of working.”

Epson’s business inkjet printers are said to require up to 98% less user intervention and uses up to 96% less energy than lasers and laser copiers.
