Make sustainable buying decisions & reduce costs


Sustainability Cuts Both Ways: Ensure your next buying decision delivers financial benefits and also a positive environmental impact

In today’s business landscape, we are seeing the need to make buying decisions that align both financial and operational goals with environmental responsibility. This is no longer a luxury—it’s a necessity.

The importance of sustainable buying decisions

As an ISO 14001 accredited company for our Environmental Management System, sustainability and carbon offset is already very much part of the Franking Sense® DNA.

Imagine the power of investing in products and services that still achieve optimum operational efficiency and provide the best value for money but also help with your company’s carbon offset policy. The good news is that the days when sustainability has to be seen as an expensive endeavour are largely gone. From 2023, green technology solutions can easily come hand-in-hand with cost-reduction strategies. Get ready to unlock the potential of conscious buying decisions with Franking Sense®!

Double the impact of making the right buying decisions: Profit and Planet

We are partnering with the leading manufacturers that build sustainability into their products. So why settle for one benefit when you can have both? By prioritising products and services that offer a positive environmental impact alongside your financial and operational requirements, you can now maximise the value of your buying decisions. It’s a win-win proposition that enhances your business’s success while contributing to a greener future, demonstrated through positive buying decisions.

The latest developments in office technology, particularly switching to the new range of sustainably manufactured printers and copiers, for example, are a real game-changer. By embracing the latest green features for your printer/copier fleet, you can benefit from the very latest technology while genuinely reducing your operational costs. MFDs built with sustainability at their core can be used to enhance efficiency, streamline workflows, and showcase your commitment to reducing your environmental impact to your staff and customers whilst controlling costs and saving you money. In short – go green and help more than just the planet. The benefits are numerous.

Sustainable buying cuts both ways: Helps your Company & Helps the Planet
So what are the factors you should consider when looking to achieve any key sustainability targets and reduce costs in this space? Here’s our guide to the key features you should consider when making purchasing decisions around your next copier or printer.

Reduced Energy Consumption: Selecting products that operate with reduced energy consumption is a guaranteed way to minimise your carbon footprint. The great news is that it’s also an easy way to slash your energy bills! At a time when energy bills are one of the most critical overhead considerations in most businesses, energy cost savings can be significant. Consider upgrading to energy-saving, low-heat printers/copiers that minimise energy consumption without compromising performance. It’s a win-win for your budget and the environment!

Reduce Waste: Get rid of excessive waste and switch to optimised, cost-saving printing. First, why not adopt printers/copier software enhancements, such as PaperCut, with intelligent features that minimise paper usage and waste? Not only will you help the planet, but you’ll also dramatically cut your paper and running costs and reduce waste.

Toner Lock Technology is a new development that prevents wasted toner by allowing toner cartridges to be changed only when they are empty. Selecting printers and copiers with this feature will enable you to maximise toner usage, cut costs, and make a significant environmental impact.

Use of Sustainable Packaging: Look for solutions where there is a clear move to reduce Plastic Capture by choosing printers/copiers that minimise plastic and use eco-friendly alternatives.

Greener Consumables: Another great way to contribute to carbon footprint reduction is to support recycling efforts. Make a conscious choice to source printers/copiers that incorporate recycled toner cartridges, for example. Reduce demand for virgin materials and contribute to a circular economy. All photocopiers Franking Sense® supply are fully guaranteed no matter what solution is chosen to ensure optimum performance and maximum cost reductions at the lowest impact dependant on application.

Reputation Matters

In a world where sustainability is gaining prominence, businesses prioritising environmental impact and ‘walking the walk’ have a distinct reputational and competitive advantage. By making buying decisions that demonstrate your commitment to sustainability, you attract like-minded customers who appreciate your ecological consciousness. Your journey to an eco-conscious business can become a magnet for like-minded eco-conscious customers making their own impact-based buying decisions.

Aligning with Green Innovators

By aligning your buying decisions with green innovators, you position your business at the forefront of environmental progress. Seek suppliers, partners, and vendors who prioritise sustainability, offering products and services that meet your business needs and contribute to a more sustainable world. Together, you can drive positive change while saving money for your business as you go. We are making these benefits and technology advancements available to all our customers as part of a normal buying process. Printing documents has traditionally been a ‘dirty tech.’ All our preferred partners in 2023 have made substantial progress in greening their technologies through low-impact recycled packaging, reduced heat/energy consumption, recycled plastics & new consumable technology, making environmental impact a core mission strategy.
