The eco-friendly, “green workplace”
You can help our environment even before you arrive at work! Go to work on a bicycle or on foot! If it’s not possible, use public transport or carpool, in that way you can reduce your share from the emission of harmful substances. As an employer, you can encourage your employees to be eco-friendly by creating a bicycle holder, or pay for their bicycle repairs or buy their public transport pass.
If you want to create a truly green workplace, change your lighting for an eco-friendly alternative. Pay attention to only use the lighting in your office or in your premises only if necessary. By setting the sleeping mode and disable the screensaver on your pc the power consumption can be reduced. At the end of the day, shut down the pc and its monitor and its other additionals, not just the pc only. Did you know, that in Hungary the annual used-up paper amount per capita is attaining 100 kg? Use recycled paper and print only the things absolutely needed. Anyhow if you must print, choose the double-page solution, so your printer doesn’t use that much paper for it. Although the paperless office is yet a dream now, every business can strive to use less paper.

The wasteful paper usage is not regarding only the contracts and company documents. Most of the receipts are printed on special thermal paper and because of the chemicals inside it this type of paper cannot be recycled and is even expressly harmful to the environment! Some people keep these receipts because of the warranty, but let’s be honest, most of the receipts are ending up in a trashcan or already left behind by the customers in the point of sale zone. So the paper receipts are not fit together with eco-conscious business values. But what kind of paperless alternatives are available?
The e-receipt provides the solution to this problem.
Our eco-friendly terminals, the 4M and the 4PRO are not contained a built-in printer. Through paperless e-bills, the customers can request their feedback on the payment also by e-mail. It’s not just an eco-friendly solution but keeping and storing the bills is easier too. In addition, it can make the accountancy easier as there is no need to glean over the long paper bills, which are by the way going to be unreadable after 1-2 years because of the thermal paper’s nature. For our Planet’s sake, we hope that e-bills are the future.
