Paper consumption

Being a place of learning results in staff and students consuming large quantities of paper. However consumption is falling due to changes in behaviour and changes to operations.  Tablets/Ipads, moodle, printing double sided, electronic meetings and electronic storage have all contributed to a 66% reduction in paper consumption in the past 5 years.

Reducing paper consumption

  • read from the screen instead of printing
  • use tablets and laptops in meetings instead of printing documents
  • Go electronic for meetings.  Book meeting rooms with data projectors
  • default double sided printing for computers
  • Utilization of Moodle instead of printing class materials
