Energy Star Labeled Multi Function Devices
Environmental & Health Information
Multi-function devices (MFDs) reduce energy because they consolidate several devices (copier, scanner, fax) into one.
Energy Star labelled multifunction devices:
- Use from 40 to 55 percent less energy than standard models.
- Will save money on paper -- certain sized equipment are required to produce double sided pages (duplexing)
- Are designed to limit the use of hazardous substances (lead, mercury, cadmium)

Why Go Green
If all imaging equipment in the United States met the latest Energy Star requirements, we would save $178 million in electricity costs and prevent 2.6 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions every year.
Not all Energy Star multifunctional devices can print on both sides of paper (duplex). Make sure to buy machines capable of duplexing.
Criteria for Copiers, Printers, Scanners, Fax Machines
Multifunction devices (all-in-one copiers/printers/scanners/fax machines) must be certified to the latest version of Energy Star. The default settings of these devices must be configured to automatically print and copy double-sided.
