Ink office multifunction printers from Xerox are helping supermarket giant Tesco reduce the size of its carbon footprint.

According to Xerox, six Xerox ColorQube 9200s have been installed at the chain's banking headquarters in Scotland.

Research from the company showed that using more sophisticated print head technology will enable Tesco to reduce its consumption of lifecycle energy by nine per cent.

Nick Folkes, IT director of infrastructure and operations at Tesco Stores, said: "Our move to new headquarters in Edinburgh gave us the opportunity to have the most eco-friendly office possible and therefore required office devices that reduced our carbon footprint.

"The Xerox ColorQube's environmental credentials made it extremely attractive to use as it fitted firmly with Tesco's Community Plan - our programme to put social and environmental issues at the heart of our business."

Tesco's decision to work with multifunction printers means a move away from stand alone scanners and fax machines.

Earlier in the year, Industry Analysts presented the Technological Innovation Award for the ColorQube device.
