In the past century, the industrial revolution led to high carbon emissions and environmental degradation. The adoption of green technology can dramatically transform your business operations, enabling you to reduce a considerable impact on the environment. Here are three technology solutions that can help reduce your business’s carbon footprint and make the world a better place.
It’s been over a hundred years since Thomas Edison invented the incandescent electric light bulb, known to be incredibly energy inefficient. Pioneers in lighting technology are developing new electric lighting solutions that are more efficient than their traditional counterparts. LED lighting is considered the gold standard of sustainable lighting solutions due to its longevity and energy-efficiency benefits. LED light bulbs last 25 times longer than incandescent light bulbs and require a lower wattage. According to the US Department of Energy, the adoption of LED lighting for 20 years can save over $250 billion in energy savings and 40 new power plants from being constructed. This is to show how sustainable LED lighting is for businesses.
Print Management Software Solutions
Printing and documentation have always been an essential part of businesses. From project management briefs to financial reports, businesses need access to a commercial printer to print essential documentation. However, old-fashioned printers consume a high amount of energy, and their print quality is below average, resulting in high paper waste. An industry-standard commercial printer and print management software solution can help your business reduce energy consumption and paper waste. Our print management software solution includes high-end features such as mobile-printing, remote print, cost reports and access-only printing
Cloud-based technology is touted as a viable sustainable solution in the corporate world. Did you know that around a billion trees’ worth of paper is disposed of every year in the United States? A document management system on the cloud can help your staff eliminate paper use, allowing your business to reduce paper waste and mass deforestation significantly.
Furthermore, cloud computing has a wide array of time-saving and cost-saving benefits for businesses to help save the planet. Cloud collaboration providers help business staff connect remotely from different locations. This means that employees can reduce their carbon emissions when working from home via cloud-based technologies. According to the EPA, an average passenger vehicle emits over 4 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. Working from home for just a day per week can dramatically reduce carbon emissions in the long run.
