The Volkswagen Group saved around 9.26-million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year following the reorganization of its office equipment infrastructure. The project started in 2005 and came into full effect last year. The company reduced its energy requirements in this area by 86% as compared to 2005. The savings are equivalent to the annual energy requirement of around 1400 households.

Volkswagen has made progress in terms of costs, energy efficiency and the environment by replacing more than 52000 fax machines, printers, photocopiers and scanners with fewer than 17500 multifunction devices throughout the Group, and integrating these new devices into a unified IT infrastructure.

Seven energy-efficient standard devices take the place of 832 different models of office equipment. Thus Group IT at Volkswagen reduced the pool of devices by 66% and eliminated around 35000 single machines. Stacked on top of each other, they would form a tower 8.7 miles high.

The new devices automatically report problems and toner levels to a service center. This enables optimal route planning for the maintenance personnel. The advantage is that repairs and maintenance are carried out as needed, storage of consumables on site is no longer necessary, and toner cartridges are always changed in an environmentally friendly way.
