you can choose to change the graphics to reflect: • CO2 emissions in kilograms • Electricity cost in local currency • Amount of trees that need to be planted to remove CO2 emissions Analyse and review estimated energy consumption of current devices using TEC values. This allows for a more detailed projection of the proposed Ricoh fleet than using TEC values alone. Ricoh’s Green Calculator and @Remote Intelligent Management System offer a simple and effective means to identify best practice methodologies for your office. Reduce paper usage and CO2 emissions by increasing the duplex ratio. Generate a more detailed projection by inputting usage values such as: • Average monthly volume (AMV) • Average number of pages in each print job • Percentage of duplex output Lower power consumption by switching to energy saver mode.Go green! Go lean! Ricoh has developed two tools to help you better compare. .. ASSESS Ricoh’s Green Calculator can project energy and paper consumption of the proposed Ricoh devices.. using Ricoh’s internal benchmarking data.? Save energy Reduce impact on the environment Reduce paper consumption Monitor and efficiently manage my current device fleet Reduce Total Cost of Ownership COMPARE Ricoh’s Green Calculator provides an estimate of the energy consumption of your current copier and printer fleet and compares them against a proposed new Ricoh fleet by using ‘typical electricity consumption’ (TEC) values – a method developed by international Energy Star. In addition to displaying the units of consumed energy (kWh) annually. assess and monitor your organisation’s carbon footprint. How can I. as well as reporting to ensure you stay on track to achieve your environmental goals.

which can help significantly cut paper consumption. and that it is not possible to acquire detailed information from certain older and/or non-Ricoh devices. enabling you to identify over. • Estimate how much electricity Ricoh devices consume monthly*. automate service and maintenance tasks (including meter billing) and minimise total cost of ownership by shifting print volumes to lower cost devices. which enables users to track trends in energy and paper consumption over time. Track actual energy consumption produced by each Ricoh device. • Track the percentage of jobs that are printed using duplex or combined modes. manufacturer and make-up of the user’s fleet may affect the accuracy of @Remote Green Reports. the cost of a single sheet of paper or a kilowatt of electricity – to generate more accurate estimates. • Identify how much time each device spends in the operation. expenses and environmental impact. * Keep in mind that the age. print-ready. • Graphical charts help users visualise changes in the environmental performance of the fleet over time. Translate usage data into reports that detail CO2 reduction trends. and CO2 reduction trends. Track trends in energy consumption over time • Translate usage data into reports that detail paper and electricity cost savings. • Compare fleet performance and set priorities to reduce energy and paper consumption to achieve corporate goals. • Track a variety of environmental metrics related to how much energy and paper each Ricoh device consumes.and under-utilised print devices. Contact your service provider to ensure all applicable devices are enabled to appear on @Remote Green Reports.MONITOR The Ricoh @Remote™ Intelligent Management System monitors Ricoh printers and MFPs on your network. sleep and energy-saving modes. • Learn how many sheets of paper are used from month to month. . REPORT This solution also provides @Remote™ Green Reports. enabling you to make better decisions about sustainability policies. • Customise reports with local data – for example. Track actual paper consumption of each Ricoh device.
