TA IS GREEN - OUR ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Energy Star

Award-winning energy consumption with the Energy Star

Almost every one of our products bears the "Energy Star" label. This means that the energy consumption of this award-winning system meets all the requirements of the energy-saving programme that apply in the USA and the EU when at rest. Of course, users can also save even more energy if they use the installed timers or switch off the printers after work or at weekends.

Good to know: The energy consumption of electrical appliances is an important factor in their ecological efficiency. In recent years, significant progress has been made in minimising energy consumption in the fields of printing, faxing and copying systems. This minimisation is indispensable for the conservation of our natural resources. The US Environmental Protection Agency launched the "Energy Star" energy-saving programme in 1992. In 2003 this programme was also officially introduced in the European Union. Revised, stricter requirements (Energy Star 2.0) have applied since 2014. If these are fulfilled, the corresponding system is allowed to bear the "Energy Star" symbol.

Consumption management: Paper use with brains

All our products which are placed on the market after 1 January 2017 meet the requirements of the Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC and the Energy Consumption-Relevant Product Law. The aim of this Directive is to save energy and resources. The last step for the time being comes into force on 1 January 2019. You will find the evidence here.

Environment: All systems go thanks to the Blue Angel

Our products meet the requirements of the Blue Angel award criteria in its latest version. In general, products and services which have been awarded the Blue Angel are more environmentally friendly than comparable conventional products and services. Due to the numerous advantages for people and the environment, almost all of our systems have been awarded the "Blue Angel". 

Award procedure

Since 1978, the German Institute for Quality Assurance and Labelling (Deutsches Institut für Gütesicherung und Kennzeichnung e. V.) has been awarding the Blue Angel. The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Construction and Nuclear Safety and the Federal Environment Agency are among those involved in the award procedure for the eco-label. We are pleased to be a member of this important (voluntary) eco-label and to contribute to the protection of the environment and the climate.

Vehicle fleet and deployment control: The environment has priority

Responsible fuel consumption has priority with our corporate fleet. Our Car Policy therefore satisfies the high demands placed on our environmental and energy awareness: During the purchasing process, we pay attention to clearly defined engine limits, the consumption and the latest technical standards. Furthermore, thanks to the automatic logistics system, our technicians are also deployed according to a system in which the routes are optimised and resources conserved. The best of all: Our remote service even makes many trips completely superfluous.
