How to Make Your Printing Business More Sustainable and Profitable

You want to grow your business, but you also care about the environment. You know that reducing your carbon footprint may help you win more bids, attract more customers, and save money. But how do you achieve that without compromising on quality or efficiency?

At Xerox, we have solutions that can help to make your printing operations more sustainable and profitable. Whether you need to print brochures, flyers, posters, or books, we can help you optimise your workflow, minimise your waste, and reduce your environmental impact.

Take these steps toward a more sustainable business:

  • Understand your environmental impacts and set goals to reduce them. We can help you with device, print and content management. We can also provide you with toners and inks assessed for safe use.

  • Print on demand. Why print more than you need? From brochures to book publishing, the flexibility to print on demand can save you warehouse space and resources. Plus, you can reduce the waste of obsolete materials.

  • Automate your processes. With our Xerox® FreeFlow® Workflow Software, you can streamline your workflow and eliminate manual tasks while dramatically reducing waste due to bad data or incorrect customer file prep, making it easier to be more profitable.

  • Use soft proofing. Save paper and time by delivering soft-proofs to your clients via email or the web. You can also reduce the environmental impact of sending paper by air or ground transportation and enable faster turn-around.

  • Make responsible paper choices. We can help you source FSC-certified and recycled content paper. You can also do your part by recycling the paper you use and installing bins around your shop to collect paper and unused prints.

  • Recycle your consumables. Don’t throw away your toner cartridges and used supplies. Many Xerox® Genuine Supplies and Everyday Toner by Xerox® cartridges for non-Xerox printers are eligible for recycling through our Green World Alliance program to help you reduce waste headed for landfill. You can also consult local resources to recycle other consumables locally.

  • Use equipment designed for recycling and return at end-of-life. Our devices are designed with recycling and reuse in mind, helping to drive the circular economy. Ask your suppliers what they are doing to reduce their environmental impact.

  • Work with responsible suppliers. We care about the environment as much as you do. That’s why we work with suppliers who share our values and commitment to sustainability.
