Kyocera seminar to put energy consumption under the spotlight

22 April 2009

Document imaging company invites delegates to learn how the Carbon Reduction Commitment will impact on work practices

Kyocera, the leading document imaging company has unveiled its latest theme for the upcoming Green Card Seminar.

With the Carbon Reduction Commitment now predicted to affect as many as 20,000 UK organisations from 2010, the spotlight is back on energy consumption. While energy prices have fallen from their 2008 peak, the introduction of this cap and trade scheme will demand renewed focus on efficient energy use. Whilst data centres have made the headlines until now, the impact of desktop devices and office imaging equipment cannot be ignored.

The Green Card Conference will outline the key impacts of office printing and copying on energy consumption and offers solutions that can reduce electricity bills immediately, as well as strategies for driving down energy use in the future
