Q

Heading 4

(1) Consider this option is based on analysis, your company printed physical documents cannot be avoided or replaced with the e-document option.
(2) Evaluate your current printers for its performance and lifespan.
(3) Determine the number of 'end of life' printers that need to be replaced.

Opportunity

Heading 4

Business:
Overall cost savings from reduced energy consumption from printers.

Sustainability:
Reduced environmental emissions from the use of more energy efficient printers.

Strategy Build & Execution

Heading 4

(1) Analyze the budget available for the adoption of more efficient printers.
(2) Align with your stakeholders especially IT, Corporate Administration (Document management), and any other departments as deemed necessary.
(3) Structure a go-to-market and replacement strategy for the end of life of existing printers and adoption of new printers by considering warranty, lifespan, energy rating, delivery terms, installation, integration to network, material costs (e.g., ink), trade-back programs, disposal programs for end-of-life printers, and overall environmental impact.

Supplier Negotiation & Contract

Heading 4

(1) Negotiate with suppliers on value-added elements such as shipping and handling, installation, disposal of end-of-life printers.
(2) Establish in contract the various supplier performance measures which would be tracked (e.g., efficient printer disposal, retrieve reusable parts from disposed off products, software uptime, regular reports of the number of e-documents generated via printing if not readily available)

Supplier Performance & Management

Heading 4

Integrate the reporting of CO2 emission reductions into your annual performance analysis and that of the supplier. Benchmark against industry standards and compare the performance with the earlier printer.
