Use certified paper and recycle it (FSC or PEFC certification and the EU Flower eco-label), this preserve natural resources. Use work group printers rather than individual desktop printers to save energy. Share personal printers via Wi-Fi or Ethernet - it requires less equipment, less power and reduces waste and recycling at end of life.
