At Officiency, Inc. one of our values is corporate social and environmental responsibility. We strive to assist clients to become more sustainable in how they do business. One of the biggest impacts any office can have is to become The Paperless Office.
The average American now consumers nearly 750 pounds of paper each year, which is the highest paper consumption in the world. According to the Environmental Paper Summit in 2002, the pulp and paper industry is among the world’s largest generators of air and water pollutants, waste products, and the gases that cause climate change. It is also one of the largest users of raw materials, including fresh water, energy, and forest fibers. Paper is the number one material that we throw away. For every 100 pounds of trash we throw away, 35 pounds is paper. Currently only 50% of the paper manufactured is recycled. Every year nearly 900,000,000 trees are cut down to provide raw materials for American paper and pulp mills and over 202 billion gallons of water are used.
In order to help businesses reduce paper, it is important to have a well organized electronic records management system on the company’s hard/share drive. Learn more about how Officiency can re-organize your company’s shared files with our Electronic File Organizing services.
Once your company has an organized system of managing data, the Officiency consultant will help your team develop a process to reduce the incoming paper. We will work with each department on electronic methods to receive the incoming paper and do our best to provide simple and easy alternatives for processing.
We will work with each department on streamlining the internal paper-processes to become automated and electronic. We will utilize your existing software systems and recommend new systems, if needed.
