Xerox has been focusing on sustainability since the early 1980s. As the first company to offer energy saving power down options on their equipment and defaulted two-sided printing, Xerox has long been the leader in the industry for sustainability initiatives. 

In 2012 at the end of a 10-year initiative to reduce emissions, Xerox succeeded in reducing 42% of their emissions and reduced power consumption by 31%. Now Xerox is aiming for an additional 20% reduction in both areas by 2020.

Toshiba

Toshiba recently developed the world’s first multi-functional device with erasable toner.  With a strong commitment to sustainability, Toshiba realized that to be truly impactful in the printing environment there needed to be a way to reduce paper usage. Toshiba was awarded the Bronze Stevie by the American Business Awards for creating the World’s First Multifunction Product with Erasable Toner.

With the release of the eStudio 306LP customers can not only save money on dramatically lower paper costs but can also quantify their sustainability initiative with data on the exact decrease in paper usage.
