In this session, you will learn about sustainability; what a “real” paperless office is—fact or fiction; the environmental costs of paper production and waste; the economic costs of waste paper; and “best practices” to save you paper, ink, and money.
Why “The Paperless Office—Conservation for Employees” Matters:
The use of paper in offices for printing, copying, and other uses costs organizations money, consumes valuable natural resources, and pollutes the environment. These environmental and economic costs can be greatly reduced by taking simple steps to reduce the amount of paper used in the workplace. An office that uses no paper may not be a reality anytime soon; however, using less paper is a goal that can be achieved with the proper knowledge and actions. Conserving paper fosters a healthier environment and also will make any organization more sustainable.
