Our commitment to the Environment
The Management of ASL recognises the need to have an active environmental policy and ESG initiatives. Our environmental policy protects the environment, promotes good working practices that are designed to minimise the effects of pollution and reduces ASL and its customers’ carbon footprint.
In additional to complying with all legislation and official Codes of Practices related to the environment, ASL has ISO14001 accreditation and has implemented far-reaching policies in all areas of its business operations.
Reduction in printing
Given that paper is thought to represent up to 80% of printing’s carbon footprint, organisations are missing out on a huge opportunity to reduce paper wastage. According to research, whilst over 90% of SMEs recycle toner cartridges and almost 80% offer paper recycling facilities, few are promoting green printing practices to reduce paper usage in the first place.
ASL help customers rationalise the printer fleet, increase the employee/printer ratio and implement print policies to minimise environmental impact. Additionally, we undertake a full audit of your printing and recommend a suite of software to help you control wasted output in your business, from secure print release, setting departmental print quotas to full digitisation of document workflows.
