Green Printing

Georgia Tech is committed to reducing paper usage and other costs associated with copying and printing documents. Although printing less is best, adjusting your printer and copier settings is one of the simplest ways you can reduce your environmental impact on campus. Here are some tips to help your department meet these goals:

1. Set up your printer such that it defaults to print “double-sided” (duplex) mode when you print documents.

  • This can be done at the department server level if your IT processes are centrally managed in your department
  • If not, individual desk computers need to be be set to default to duplex from your computer’s control panel

2. Print in black and white and avoid printing large areas of color
