How going paperless can help businesses and the planet – infographic
Eliminating paper can be extremely rewarding for businesses, not only to reduce their environmental impact, but also because it increases security and saves companies money, writes Image One Corporation.
In today’s day and age, it is extremely important for businesses to focus on reducing their environmental impacts to help alleviate the damage that has already been done. Because the sustainability movement continues to grow in popularity each year, green initiatives are becoming increasingly popular among businesses and customers alike. As of today, paper makes up to 25% of landfill waste, and eliminating it from your office is a great way for your business to be greener. While going paperless may seem daunting and expensive, the benefits will far outweigh the costs for small businesses across the board. By leveraging this new technology, companies can save money, increase efficiency and, most importantly, reduce their carbon footprint.
After taking the plunge, businesses can expect to see improved accessibility and streamlined operations thanks to digitising important documents that no longer require time to locate or money to print. In addition, business information, which may be damaging if put in the wrong hands, can be much more secure when existing in a solely digital format. Because of this, companies looking to make big waves in their industry should consider going paperless. For more information on the process and its benefits, check out the infographic below.
