Sustainable Solutions That Meet Your Business Needs
Virginia Business Systems is committed to operating our businesses in an environmentally responsible manner and to helping our clients do the same. In our ever-increasing dedication to green business practices, we are proud to be members of the Eco Chamber and New River Valley Go Green.
At Virginia Business Systems, we pride ourselves on our continued commitment to helping our customers establish green recycling programs. Because of this commitment, we have partnered with Konica Minolta to bring our customers access to their Clean Planet Program. Through this program, businesses can implement a true recycling program that allows for all consumables to be re-used and recycled.
The Clean Planet Program is Konica Minolta’s cost-free consumables recycling program that adds zero waste to landfill and zero incineration. All Konica Minolta consumables can be recycled and no matter your volume, there is a program to fit your needs.
Virginia Business Systems is also proud to be partnered with PrintReleaf. PrintReleaf is a certification system and software platform for automated global reforestation. Measure your paper footprint and forest impact over time. Paper consumption data is automatically updated and converted to trees using the PrintReleaf Standard. Click below to learn more.
There are many steps to enhancing the green initiatives in your business, including:
Energy efficient devices are a great way to lower the amount of energy that your office consumes without making a significant change to policy. When devices are not in use they are much better at conserving energy, helping to save each month from your utility costs! All of our devices are setup with sleep modes activated before they are even delivered, ensuring that you are not overspending on utilities that aren’t necessary.
By reducing the amount of paper that your office uses every month, you not only reduce your impact on the environment, but can also see significant improvements on your office’s supply costs. Unmanaged printing can equal upwards of 1-3% of your office’s annual budget, meaning you are missing out on one of the most significant cost saving areas in your business. Another tactic that we utilize on all of our systems before they are delivered is the automatic setup to print duplex, or print on both sides of the page to further reduce paper consumption.
