Canon Aims To Help University Increase Efficiency
An assessment carried out by printer and ink cartridges developer Canon has found that setting printers to duplex mode can make massive inroads into helping the environment.
An assessment carried out by Canon on printers at Arizona State University (ASU) during 2011 found that the environmental savings from duplex printing saved over 725 trees. On top of this it also managed to save 2.34 million litres of water and lowered carbon emissions by more than 74 metric tons.
ASU currently has a partnership with Canon which aims to help the university achieve a Sustainable Digital University standard.
Ray Jensen, associate vice president of University Business Services at ASU, said: "We are grateful to have the support of the Canon team to help move ASU closer to our 2025 carbon-neutrality goal. In one year, we were able to take 584 printers offline across ASU, and increase the number of devices supporting duplex printing."
To help ASU achieve this, the Canon team regularly conducts site evaluations and makes efficient equipment recommendations.
