        • Creating a more sustainable business

          A key part of its environmental portfolio, Toshiba's Energy Manager For Office (EMFO) is a flexible and accurate solution for managing a business's power consumption needs.

          Part of the company's ongoing commitment to enabling organisations to drastically lower their operating costs and drive forward effective corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives, EMFO identifies where energy is being wasted and takes steps to deal with the issue.

          EMFO manages the energy consumption of laptops, PCs and Toshiba MFPs and is designed to address the fact that people tend to forget to turn off devices when they leave the office. It enables users to create profiles and manage devices remotely. The software will automatically shut devices down at the end of the day and wake them up so they are ready to use in the morning for example, it also factors in timed breaks such as lunchtimes, as well as longer periods including weekends.

          EMFO is also intelligent, if, for example firmware upgrades take place overnight, it will turn the devices on and then off again, thus saving energy.

          Companies utilising this solution can realise energy usage reductions of up to 60% on computing hardware and Toshiba MFPs - delivering tangible financial savings and reducing an organisations' impact on the environment.

          Carbon Zero
          All Toshiba products are designed to strict ecological principles that are mindful of the environment and energy efficiency and help to further strengthen end-users' corporate social responsibility programme at no extra cost.

          First launched in 2009, Toshiba's pioneering Carbon Zero scheme helps end users to reduce their environmental impact by offsetting all the carbon generated in the manufacturing and shipping of its products.

          Toshiba's commitment to CarbonZero and to offsetting the emissions produced during the design, manufacture, distribution and every day use of its MFPs in the UK, has lead to widespread benefits in a number of social and environmental schemes.

          These include projects that help villagers in Kenya to reduce their own carbon footprint by using energy efficient stoves, with each cooker typically preventing three tonnes of CO2 emissions every year, equivalent to that produced by an average car doing 9,000 miles a year in the UK. Another scheme set up is supporting wind farms in rural India and the newest scheme will repair and maintain vital supplies from bore holes in Uganda in order to supply fresh water to poor communities.

          The e-STUDIO306LP and RD30 set a new industry benchmark in sustainable printing by incorporating the company's unique erasable toner technology.

          The Eco-MFP is a fully-fledged multifunctional system but what makes it unique, is the use of the special blue toner, which can be de-colourised. When used paper is fed into the eraser unit it heats the toner and de-colourises the print, providing a blank sheet that can be reused up to five times; reducing paper costs and waste by 80%.
