Green calculator released

Sustainability now measurable

Xerox has unveiled a "Sustainability Calculator" which uses proprietary algorithms and document assessment research to suggest ways to reduce energy and paper consumption from office devices, regardless of manufacturer.

It has input fields to describe a printer or other office device, noting the kind of cartridges used, if the device is colour or mono, how fast it produces pages and how many of those pages are printed per month.

A second set of fields asks how an office manager would like to see the machines perform. The calculator then shows bar graphs covering energy consumption, greenhouse gases and the solid waste produced, from empty ink cartridges through to retiring the machine.
