Logica reduces carbon emissions by 32 per cent through HP’s managed print services
BRACKNELL, UK, 31 May 2012 – Hewlett-Packard (HP) is helping business and technology service provider Logica UK to reduce its carbon footprint by 50 per cent by 2020, through controlling its print emissions.
With 6,000 print users across 23 UK locations, controlling and managing printing is a large part of the solution for Logica’s green aims.
To reduce power usage and cut costs, HP implemented a Managed Print Services (MPS) solution. This subsequently reduced the size of its printer fleet by eliminating many personal printers and introducing multifunction printers (MFP) which print, copy, scan and fax all in one device.
These measures have meant that printing has fallen from 16 million prints in 2006 to 9.7 million in 2011 – a reduction of 65 per cent. Subsequent carbon emissions related to paper have fallen from 407 tonnes in 2006 to 133 tonnes in 2011.
Arlette Anderson, UK head of health, safety and environment at Logica said, “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”
Combined with the greater overall efficiency of new HP technology and the use of remote management to set economical ‘sleep’ and ‘wake-up’ times, this has enabled Logica to achieve a 32 per cent reduction in energy usage for document printing.
When the project started it aimed to make a six per cent reduction each year and by 2010 that figure had increased to ten per cent. Bruno Zago, environmental manager for HP in Europe, Middle East and Africa, said, “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.”
