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.

Products & Service

Where possible ASL supplies products that are sourced from ISO14001 accredited manufacturers. That way, our customers can be sure that the products themselves are manufactured and ultimately recycled and/or disposed of in the most environmentally friendly manner regardless of supplier. Where possible packaging from the products we supply to our customers is produced from 100% pulp and is recyclable. Additionally, we collect and recycle all packaging from the equipment we install for our customers.

We offer a wide range of laser devices with varying energy consumption levels and can tailor our offering to meet each clients’ economic, ergonomic or energy requirements. We also offer business inkjet devices as an alternative to laser-based devices. With up to 96% lower energy consumption, and up to 94% less waste, inkjet printers use no heat in the printing process, so they consume far less power to help customers reduce their environmental impact of printing.

Engineers and Remote Fix

ASL has implemented remote monitoring software solutions in customers that ensure machines in the field are permanently evaluated for their efficiency and toners are dispatched on a “just in time” basis so that toner wastage is minimized. In addition, this software allows up to 30% of machine malfunctions to be fixed remotely from our dedicated service centre in Cannock, reducing the need for wasteful engineer visits

If a visit is required, with a technical resource of over 100 people, ASL are able to minimise travel time by having an engineer local to your location. We use GPS tracking to ensure journey planning is as efficient as possible and by providing our engineers with a good level of spares and parts in their vehicles we aim to minimise the need for a revisit.
