While reducing costs is top of mind for almost every organisation, managed print services offers many additional benefits outside of cost savings. By removing unnecessary processes and streamlining others, we bring savings in resource allocation by reducing and standardising your hardware fleet, consolidating vendors, reducing print volumes, improving document security and adding control.

A successful business relationship between a Managed Print Services vendor and its customers requires the vendor to develop and in-depth knowledge about the customers device and usage. Additionally, a keen understanding of the business process and workflows is vitally important. As companies seek possible Managed Print Services partners, they need to be able to discriminate between sales fluff and real experience. This is a strategic solution, not a day-to-day hard copy offering.
“In 2013, Green Office saved 602,761 kgs of
plastic and other waste from ending up in landfills
through our recycling and remanufacturing efforts.
This is an energy savings equivalent to driving
a medium sized petrol car over 3.5 million km
(distance equivalent to driving the circumference
of the earth 87 times).”
Since our business was founded in 1997, we traditionally focused on the supply of OEM (original equipment manufacturer) and remanufactured cartridges.
We have developed a series of sophisticated internal processes and software tools that monitor and provide control throughout the entire cartridges procurement process – from purchase, to distribution, through usage and finally disposal.
Our stringent ISO standards also ensure exceptional quality, high yield cartridges with significant environmental benefits and cost savings to businesses.

To help make the cartridge disposal process easy and seamless, Green Office provides a collection service to any business that would like to get rid of used units responsibly. Most empty cartridges also have a value which, should you request it, Green Office will pay to either a charity of your choice or one of our designated partners.

Remanufacturing saves around 25% to 40% of the energy needed to make an original cartridge. Remanufacturing saves around 2.8l of oil (the amount used in producing a new cartridge). Significantly less air and water pollution results from remanufacturing compared to the production of original cartridges.
Printing makes up a significant part of an organisation’s environmental footprint and one of the key ways a business can improve their sustainability is to prevent unnecessary wastage. To assist businesses in achieving this, Green Office has produced an in-house software suite ensuring that a business’s document environment is more efficiently managed, cutting both the cost and wastage associated with unmanaged printing.

Green Office’s CSI Programme, greenABLE is a non-profit organisation with an 18A certification that creates employment and skills development opportunities for previously unemployed individuals with disabilities.
Through its work in the three main areas of recycling, cartridge collection and skills development, it helps to address social, economic and environmental challenges and gives beneficiaries the ability to lead financially empowered lives while also making a meaningful contribution the environment.
greenABLE employees act as collection agents with satellite businesses in their own homes. This gives them the ability to gain business skills, while at the same time earning a sustainable income.
The only initiative of its kind in Africa, greenABLE’s recycling initiative sees beneficiaries working to clean and strip collected print cartridges, allowing for the units to be completely recycled. To date over 475 tonnes of waste has been diverted from landfill sites.
With an emphasis on upskilling as a critical aspect for development and empowerment, greenABLE works on helping people with disabilities to reach their full potential within the workplace. To do this, beneficiaries are provided with education such as ABT training (matric equivalent), internships and bursaries
At Green Office, we don’t just focus on the sustainability of our partners, but also the communities in which we operate. Because of this, we extend our services to the public through initiatives such as our school programmes, where people can safely dispose of printer cartridges for proper recycling and remanufacture.
Small businesses are key to stimulating economic growth within the green industry and the South African community at large. For this reason, our CSI initiatives and partnerships focus on micro-enterprises, concentrating on people with physical disabilities, traditionally a highly marginalised group, enhancing professional skills and encouraging entrepreneurship.
greenABLE and our other projects are supported and funded in part through the work we do with our customers, as part of our CSI programme. We also welcome partnerships with businesses that wish to support greenABLE in a more direct way.
