Tablets bring Green feel to the office

With it being the holiday season there is plenty of the color green around to get people in the holiday spirit. However, that color has been taken over by a movement that has become very popular in recent years and has even made its way into many boardrooms as part of the decision-making process.

The green movement is an environmental consciousness about how our actions affect nature. While there may not seem to be a correlation between protecting the environment and how to handle a mobile device deployment for a small business, there actually is and it is quite strong.

A recent infographic was released by PDF creation company Uberflip that shows just how green an iPad can make a business. While some of the benefits may be more obvious – such as 45 percent of users reducing their printing habits – there are others that are harder to guess.

For instance, it takes seven gallons of water to produce the average printed book as opposed to 2 cups for the average digital publication. Also the average 60-watt incandescent light bulb emits 48.4g of CO2 an hour. By comparison, the iPad comes in at 2.5g per hour and the iPhone only 1.2g.

While there is the issue of recycling the tablet itself as opposed a book, many manufacturers including Apple and Samsung have initiated green production processes to ease this burden.

According to the report, 25 percent of U.S. adults currently own a tablet, so it's clear that the mobile revolution is in full swing. Companies that have started to prepare for this with proper bring-your-own-device protocols and updated network settings can ensure they are ready to benefit in the obvious, and less obvious, ways.
