Sustainability performance is now an important supplier selection factor as businesses aim to meet ambitious environmental targets and reduce the impact generated in their supply chain. To this end, Quocirca has published the first independent and comprehensive analysis of sustainability strategies and offerings in the print industry. The 2022 Sustainability Leaders Study, positions key vendors – Brother, Canon, Epson, HP Inc., Konica Minolta, Kyocera, Lexmark, Ricoh and Xerox, based on their sustainability strategy, vision and completeness of offering (page 20).
Data from the Labour Force Survey by the Office for National Statistics found that resignations rose sharply from the end of 2020 and significantly exceeded their pre-pandemic levels in the final quarter of 2021. Find out more about the impact of the big resignation in this month’s VOX POP – page 42.
Audrey Agahan, Director of Marketing at EveryonePrint, picks the work tools she uses every day and couldn’t do her job without (page 18). This month’s Q&A is with John Reynolds, Co–Founder & Managing Director, Workplace Print and Data, and PITR spent 60 seconds with Mark Ash, Chief Revenue Office, Konica Minolta.
