STATES printing costs could be halved if departments printed in black and white instead of colour, the chief minister has said.
It follows written questions from Deputy Lester Queripel about how much departments spent on producing leaflets.
Environment said it spent £1,283 last year but would have spent only £144 if it had printed in black and white.
‘To put this in context this would represent less than 0.08% of the Financial Transformation Programme target set for the department and less than 0.065% of the FTP target the department is aiming to deliver,’ said minister Roger Domaille.
‘The £1,138.51 potential savings figure can also be compared with the estimated £300 cost in extracting this data in order to provide this answer to your question.’
Chief Minister Peter Harwood said the Policy Council spent £31,800 on printing key documents last year.
