Low carbon office documents

Simple tips to save both energy and money

1.   Never print something just to read it once.  

2.   Always use the “print preview” function to ensure a document looks right before printing.

3.   Reduce the size of the font (or images) rather than letting just a few lines run on to a second page.

4.   Always print double-sided.

5.   For internal documents, consider printing several sheets to a page.

6.   Only print the page(s) you need, not the entire document

7.   If you’re printing multiple copies of a document, proof-read one copy before printing the rest.

8.   Only print the number of copies you actually need.

9.   Scan and email documents rather than send a hard copy.

10  Always turn off your printer at the end of the day.
