3 What next and how?  Investigate areas of highest expenditure first, environmental savings are often proportional to financial savings  Change behaviour  Raise awareness  Enlist the help of environmentally sympathetic staff and students and market the benefits  Make staff & students accountable, relate to real money and/or trees  Offer a viable alternative

4 The infinite pursuit of the paperless office

5 That’s quite a lot of paper………

6 The cost (GROSS)  In paper £7,500  In toner £22,500  In printer maintenance kits £5,000  In IT support time ????  TOTAL £35,000 (NET)

7 The Objectives  To reduce the overall volume of printing at Pembrokeshire College by 20%, saving £7,000 (GROSS).  To introduce a managed printing solution in co-operation with staff which raised awareness without impacting on people’s ability to do their job.

8 The Objectives cont.  To improve the systems hosting electronic information to provide a viable alternative to printing by introducing a new Intranet web based information storage system.  To improve the uptake to the ‘Moodle’ learning environment by staff.
