Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Use less paper

Simple steps to avoid wasting paper in your working day.

Make sure you’re printing double sided. 

It only takes a couple of minutes to set your computer to print double sided, and its the default for University SelectPrint printers.

Print in black and white. Printing in black and white is about ten times cheaper than printing in colour and more sustainable as well.
Work together to reduce the amount of paper you use. Scan documents rather than sending photocopies, put PDF documents on the web and send meeting notes and agenda electronically.

 

Need something printed professionally?

Printing Services uses recycled paper and has adopted many other sustainable practices, including delivering by bike! If you do need to print using a company outside of the University, ask if they can use recycled paper.
