HP Sets Out Ink Cartridge Recycling And Green Office Scheme

This week has seen technology giant Hewlett Packard (HP) hold a number of programme in order to encourage green and sustainable printing.

The programmes, which were held in Milan, Prague and Marrakech were set up in order to try and educate companies on the benefits and practicalities of a green technology and printing infrastructure.

Ink cartridge and paper recycling were on the agenda for discussion as were other low carbon emission solutions with the event being targeted at firms anywhere from small to medium sized business up to large corporates.

"69 per cent of technology leaders worldwide cite reducing energy cost as the top motivation for pursuing green IT," said Bruno Zago, HP's environmental manager for the UK and Ireland.

"Now that we cannot have a paperless society, the company is forced to optimize resources through providing its customers with technologies that increase efficiencies and reduce waste."

According to HP, technology contributes to two per cent of the world's carbon emissions.

55 per cent of this comes from PCs, monitors, printers and telephones while 45 per cent comes from data centres.
