Every one likes a case study. They show how technology is being used in the real world and the best ones include statistics that really grab the attention. Even so, there comes a point when you have to wonder what the value is in publishing them. Do people still need to be persuaded of the benefits of a paper saving pull printing system, say, or faster, more reliable electronic workflows? Well yes,...

Issue 12 – Editors Comment: All bases covered – for convenience’s sake So, streaming videos from Netflix is greener than watching a DVD, especially if that DVD is collected from a store rather than delivered to your house. This seems highly likely; just as plausible in fact as studies that argue the opposite. I love investigations like the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory analysis of...

Issue 11 – Editors Comment: Paperless processes are hugely beneficial to businesses and the environment, but in the rush to eradicate paper have the needs of consumers been forgotten? The Keep Me Posted campaign certainly thinks so – and with good reason (see page 16). Going paperless is a relatively easy way for an organisation to reduce its carbon footprint, but it is not always in the best...

Issue 10 – Editors Comment: New figures from IDC show that the number of pages printed on home and office printers and MFPs fell by 5% worldwide in 2011 and by 3% in Western Europe. The fall is due to a combination of factors including the economic climate; new technology (e.g. tablet computers); the on-going digitisation of key business processes (see pages 23 and 24 for examples); and attempts...

Issue 09 – Editors Comment: Not many Government initiatives win broad support from business, especially not those that impose extra red tape. Even so we shouldn’t be surprised by the positive reaction to proposed mandatory carbon reporting for companies listed on the London Stock Exchange. Many large businesses already calculate carbon emissions and even those that don’t must surely recognise...

Issue 08 – Editors Comment: Received wisdom states that in hard times, sustainability takes a back seat. Yet, it is also true that in a downturn, many businesses grab the opportunity to reassess working practices and business processes with a view to reducing costs, improving efficiency and eliminating waste – the classic sustainability agenda. At a Brother press conference last month, Arnaud...

Issue 07 – Editors Comment: According to Kyocera’s latest Sustainability survey, office workers printed 40% fewer pages last year – the first fall since the survey began in 2007. This is impressive, but not unexpected: indeed, it’s more surprising that this is the first time a fall has been registered. After all, it is in the interests of everyone (bar printer and paper suppliers) to use...

Issue 06 – Editors Comment: When planning the Summer issue of Sustainable Times, an article on window film (see page 14) seemed an obvious choice. We felt sure that readers sweltering in sun-drenched, south-facing offices would respond well to the message that window film can create a cooler working environment, while managers in modern offices would be attracted by its potential to lower air...

Issue 05 – Editors Comment: Last year may have ended in disappointment at Copenhagen, but for office equipment buyers there was much that was positive about 2009. The need to economise meant that managers were more open to waste reduction initiatives and technologies, such as virtualisation, smart printing and video conferencing. At the same time, manufacturers of business equipment continued...

Issue 04 – Editors Comment: It’s been a miserable summer so far, but if recent years are anything to go by we could be in for a warm September. For office workers who don’t have the luxury of air conditioning this is a mixed blessing. But even those who enjoy temperature-controlled working environments may have to get used to warmer offices, as the British Council of Offices recommends raising...
