Carbon Neutral Printing with EBM

Managed Services firm pledges to help clients mitigate their impact on the environment.

Witham-based Managed Services provider EBM has announced today that it is launching a new Green Print Programme to help clients deal with their environmental responsibilities.

“The aim of the Green Print Programme is to offer our clients a means of addressing the carbon footprint generated by their print operations,” says Mark Bailey, Managing Director.

There are two elements of the Scheme. First, the firm will ensure the recycling/ethical disposal of used inks, toners and consumable parts. Additionally, EBM will undertake an annual calculation of the carbon emissions from printers at client sites. These will then offset in a verified project of the client’s choosing.

“The printer industry isn’t renowned for its environmental conscience,” says Non-Executive Director Richard Tytherleigh. “But if you take a closer look manufacturers are making some real progress. At EBM we want to pass this on to our clients.”

“But we want to go further than simply providing more efficient printers with less waste,” agrees firm founder Mick Bailey. “We also want to be able to promise our clients that their printing is as close to carbon neutral as possible. The Green Print Programme is our means of delivering on that promise.”

The carbon neutral printing programme is free of charge to the firm’s Managed Print clients, who will receive documentation detailing the difference their participation has made.

MD Mark Bailey comments: “We’re excited to provide this extra service to our clients. To offer them a free and easy way to reduce their carbon footprint is something really special.”
