Reducing the use of paper in the office is an important means for cutting costs and reducing carbon footprint. In fact, according to recent third-party research conducted by Lexmark, paper is a more important contributor to carbon footprint than the energy used by printers. This calculator lets you estimate the potential savings achievable through five tactics: two-sided (duplex) printing, elimination of reports that are not being used, switching from paper forms to e-forms, switching from conventional faxes to e-faxes and reducing the weight of paper used for various documents.
