HP remains committed to improving its environmental responsibility – and consumers who want to be as eco-friendly as possible could follow in the footsteps of the manufacturer.

Printer supplies from the producer tend to be energy efficient – a number of models in the HP range are Energy Star certified, helping consumers to know which products are eco-friendly.

As well as making sustainable printers, the company also uses its Power Management Technology to ensure that its computers use less power.

Besides reducing power use, HP has introduced a number of schemes designed to reduce waste.

Used items from the manufacturer – including finished ink cartridges – can be returned for recycling, for example.

People printing at home can improve their own eco credentials by following in the footsteps of HP, opting to reduce energy usage and increasing recycling of printer supplies and other goods. Using features such as duplex printing can also help to reduce waste, as well as cut down on paper expenses.
