How eSignatures are protecting the environment
Updated: Nov 2, 2022
An increasing number of businesses are making a concerted effort to improve their operations to reduce the environmental impact, such as emissions from business activities. One of the easiest transformations is to maximise the benefits of using digital processes such as eSignature over paper-based alternatives which can cause significant environmental damage to the planet.
Here are some of the facts about the environmental impact of traditional paper production:
Deforestation: 9,541,559 hectares of forest were cut down or burned globally in 2021, which has a whooping 11.3% contribution to global emissions.
Pollutants: Paper & pulp industries are responsible for producing 100 million kgs of harmless contaminants.
Waste disposal & recycling: Paper waste disposal & recycling is the main challenge as 40% of the total waste is paper waste.
An average employee uses 10,000 sheets of paper every year and each year 7.5 billion documents product 15 trillion copies of the original documents. Reducing paper consumption can save operational costs as well as transform your company into an eco-friendly business.
How to transform your business
Opting for electronic signatures is a great and effective way to play your part in conserving the environment and protecting our planet from pollution and degradation.
That’s because with eSignatures there are no requirements for printing, copying and using physical paper that comes from trees manufactured in factories that are in turn notorious for polluting the environment.
By embracing paperless operations, you are saving our trees, our natural resources, and our environment as a whole. In fact, many customers and employees today are increasingly committed to environmental causes and demand more sustainable options.
When your business employs environment-friendly policies, your customers and team will appreciate it and be more willing to give their best, buy from you, and take you seriously.
