Health benefits company WellPoint has partnered with Xerox in an effort to adopt greener business practices.

The Green Office Initiative has explored how ink is used and how documents are shared and updated across WellPoint's 90 office locations, providing the firm with new ways of acting environmentally efficient.

Andrew J. Lang, senior vice president of WellPoint, said: "WellPoint's Green Office Initiative has four over-arching goals: reduce waste, enhance recycling efforts, minimize creation of greenhouse gases and create an energy-efficient work environment."

Savings of $3 million (£1.8 million) have been gained through the work, with paper expenses dropping $280,000 from last year, while an estimated reduction of print-related energy use of 60 per cent has also been recorded.

HP is another company that has encouraged sustainable printing, as the firm held programmes in Milan, Prague and Marrakech at the end of March to educate companies on the advantages of green technology.
