Recommendation : 6. Enabling users to reduce their impacts
Is the dematerialization of the service complete, and if the production of paper documents is essential, is it designed to limit its impact to the lowest possible ?
Are the screens affected by printing identified and their usefulness demonstrated?
The flows of dematerialization are sometimes broken, and require written documents output. The user, in some cases, may also be more comfortable using printed documents rather than 100% electronic. Printings have a significant environmental footprint, whether in paper consumption, consumables such as cartridges and printing inks. The printed presentation, or electronic presentation are different, on the other hand the limitation of the environmental footprint must lead to a diminution in the volume of printed information
Print test are run to check ink, papers consumption and relevance of information printed
