Henderson, Andrew,

Dear Mr Steele

Further to your request, I would be grateful if you could clarify Q3.

You have asked "What percentage of your fleet is printed in colour vs mono?" Our understanding is that "fleet" generally refers to the printer devices themselves.

Could you please clarify whether you are asking “What percentage of your printer fleet are capable of printing colour?” or “What percentage of the page count is colour vs mono?”.

Once in receipt of this clarification we will be happy to respond in line with the legislation.

Kind regards,

Andy
