Intercruises teams in Barcelona have reduced the purchase of printer paper by 70% since 2011-2012 (fiscal year).

*Note: Each ream contains 500 sheets of paper.

How Was This Achieved?

A number of actions were implemented to reduce paper consumption:

  • Sustainability awareness was promoted using posters (see below) and email communications
  • Two-sided printing was set to default on all Barcelona printers.
  • A sustainability  message was implemented on Intercruises’ email footer: “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Think before you print.”.
Sustainability Poster hung above every printer in Intercruises' Barcelona offices.
