Xerox Receives Top ENERGY STAR® Award
April 2021: ENERGY STAR have named Xerox as their Partner of the Year to reflect the global environmental commitment of Xerox. This prestigious award is the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy’s premier award.
Xerox’s long-running Design for Sustainability initiative pays dividends
Competing against 1,000’s of ENERGY STAR partners, Xerox won this accolade for their superior commitment to energy management which has been demonstrated by their own best practices across their organisation, proven organisation-wide energy savings, and through their participation in actively and communicating the benefits of ENERGY STAR®.
This award stems from Xerox’s long-running Design for Sustainability initiative, through which Xerox redesigned the power supply on certain models of new printers to optimise energy savings, reducing energy consumption by 14%.
In Addition, Xerox collaborated with the EPA to develop the latest revision of the ENERGY STAR® Imaging Equipment standard, which defined criteria for remanufactured equipment.
With more than 500 Xerox products having achieved ENERGY STAR® registration, customers can be confident that their purchasing decisions are optimised for the needs of the environment.
At Advanced UK, we believe in the urgent need to tackle climate change, and we’re proud to be the original Xerox Platinum Partner. Sustainable and eco-friendly office technology, such as multifunctional printers, can make a profound difference to the carbon footprint of our customers.
By partnering with Xerox since 1991, Advanced UK have a proven track record in minimising pollution and energy consumption. For example, our IT Managed Print help desk resolves more than 60% of support calls remotely, saving 1,000’s of tonnes of CO2 emissions through keeping our engineers off the nation’s roads.
We are also active partners in recycling, and are member of the Xerox Green World Alliance which supports responsible and environmental business practices. The Xerox Green World Alliance is a valuable recycling program that minimises environmental impacts of printer supplies and provides options to throwing away empty containers.
Through this system, customers with many printers can use the Xerox ECO-BOX program to request delivery or collection of empty boxes to ensure the safe disposal of toner and other consumable items from their print devices.
Advanced have gone a step further and incorporated the ECO-BOX features into our industry-leading Support App, for one-click scheduling by your busy staff.
