Reduce Waste & Costs
Universities consume a lot of paper, toner and electricity. But, the University of Regina set a goal that it would “Make the university a leader in environmental responsibility. Put sustainability at the core of our teaching, research and campus life.” In support of this objective, the university decided that its IT organization could have a tremendous impact toward meeting the university’s strategic initiatives around sustainability. A proactive team took aim at its printing environment and set out to dramatically reduce the number of printers operating on the campus, thereby reducing electrical consumption, toner and paper in the process. The initiative was also designed to upgrade the output experience for staff and students alike. The project turned out to be a tremendous success, not only in support of its environmental philosophy but also toward reducing the overall cost of output as well.
