Making your print as environmentally friendly as possible is a huge way to help your organisation improve its carbon footprint

And if you would like to take steps towards an eco-friendlier print operations, HP and Banner are working in partnership to bring you the right answers.

From low energy printers to 100% recycled paper, the choices we offer will help your business become a sustainable print champion.

HP is listed as one of the world's most sustainable corporations in the Global 100 index, with its sustainable practices going beyond recycling, to include fair labour conditions, human rights and environmental performance throughout the supply chain.

More sustainable printers

Your choice of printer can make a difference to your organisation's energy consumption, efficiency and cost savings.

If you choose to replace any older, less efficient devices with fast, efficient and reliable HP models, you can lower your organisation's overall carbon footprint and decrease your energy costs.

For Example, HP OfficeJet Pro X and HP OfficeJet Enterprise X products, which feature HP PageWide Technology, offer and overall carbon footprint up to 81% smaller than comparable ink and laser printers1.HP20151204916_5cf927f60d153

HP PageWide printers deliver the lowest cost of ownership in their class, with unrivalled print speed and highly secure printing to protect device, data and documents.

Printing up to 70 pages per minuet, these printers use up to 71% less energy while printing than other equivalent laser printers and generate up to 95% less supplies and packaging waste2.

Greener paper

An environmentally preferable paper policy has been in place at HP since 2008, with the company joining the WWF Global Forest and Trade Network in 2009 and the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) in 2011.

HP Everyday Office Papers are 100% FSC certified, with 50% of HP paper also FSC certified since 20143.

Diverting plastics from landfill and sea

HP ink cartridges are made partly from recycled plastics collected in Haiti. This helps to divert one million plastic bottles from landfill, or from reaching the ocean, every day.

By operating in Haiti, HP is helping to create sustainable jobs, bringing opportunities to local people and preventing a high quantity of plastics from reaching the Caribbean.
