TA Triumph-Adler UK > About Us > Environment


Our favourite colour is green

Climate change, rising energy costs and the growing importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR) have propelled sustainable purchasing to the top of the boardroom agenda. We know that businesses no longer buy solely on price and performance, and that today, the highest environmental standards are expected as well.

We are well aware of the impact our business can have on the environment. Of course, there are strict environmental standards that we must abide by, but we prefer to go further. Wherever possible we exceed legislative requirements to help keep the world a better place for future generations.

From durability to packaging, energy consumption to recyclability – we look carefully at every aspect of our solutions to minimise its impact on the environment.

Emissions / Noise Level

There are strict legal limiting values concerning emissions of office systems. These values concerning heat, noise and substances such as ozone and dust must be achieved in order for safety approvals and environmental certificates to be awarded.

TA Triumph-Adler systems fall within these prescribed limits for all emission types (ozone, dust and TVOC*), often by a considerable margin.

TA Triumph-Adler products comply with all the necessary regulated safety standards and regularly achieve environmental certificate status from accredited bodies such as Blue Angel, ENERGY STAR and RoHS.

The results of these tests are documented in detail in the respective environment data sheets for the individual systems and can be viewed/downloaded here

In addition to the positive emission values, the low noise level of our products leads to a pleasant work climate. Our systems are equipped with “stand-by” or “sleep” mode that eliminates noise almost completely while at rest, and many models now include “quiet mode” which reduces noise considerably during operation.

Overall, TA Triumph-Adler ensures a comfortable and productive work environment whilst also protecting the global environment.

Energy / Power Consumption

The energy consumption of electrical appliances is one important factor concerning their ecological efficiency.

In recent years, considerable progress has been made regarding the minimisation of the energy consumption of multifunction copiers and printers. This is vital for the protection of our natural resources.

Power Consumption - ERP

The European Directive ErP 2009/125/EC dates of 21st October 2009. It repeals the previous Directive 2005/32/EC: EuP and is intended to improve the energy efficiency of all energy related products (ErP).

To improve energy efficiency and environmental protection, the ErP Directive which, as part of CE marking applies to products that affect energy consumption throughout their life cycle, from manufacture, use, and until their end of life.

This directive encourages manufacturers to offer products designed to reduce their overall impact on the environment, including the resources consumed during manufacture and disposal.
