Three Things to Know for World Paper Free Day

November 5, 2014

world-paper-free-day

 

On Thursday, businesses around the world will stop using paper as part of AIIM’s World Paper Free Day.

AIIM notes that 300 million tons of paper are produced each year and 4 billion trees are cut down annually. If the entire world participated in World Paper Free Day about 11 million trees could be saved.

If you take the pledge, AIIM will make a donation to The Arbor Day Foundation, which inspires people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees. Like FileBound, the Arbor Day Foundation is headquartered in Nebraska. The first Arbor Day was celebrated in Nebraska.

Here are three things to know about reducing paper use in the office.

The Impact of Paper

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, paper is the biggest source of municipal solid waste in the country. The U.S. alone uses almost 70 million tons of paper and cardboard a year. Whole trees and other plants account for one-third of the materials used to make paper.

Why go paperless?

Enterprises of all sizes can benefit from going paperless, or even just reducing the amount of paper they use. Only a quarter of AIIM community members surveyed say they have a specific strategy to becoming a paperless office.

Businesses can save money on printing, photocopying, storage and labor by going paperless. For example, American Airlines says it will save about $1 million a year by giving flight attendants tablets instead of paper manuals.

Paper documents can be mishandled and hard to access remotely. Almost half of AIIM respondents say the time spent entering data, searching for copies and filing was one of the biggest issues caused by paper-based processes in their organizations. The inability to monitor paper-based workflows is also problematic, respondents said.

Tips for Reducing Paper

One way to successfully reduce paper use is to involve management, AIIM says. Half of respondents in an AIIM survey say they used so much paper because of a lack of mandates or initiatives to reduce it from management. Employees can also cut back on paper by using technology in meetings, where research found that 60 percent of respondents were using paper copies.

Reducing paper use doesn’t stop after World Paper Free Day. Taking a few steps can continue your business’s paper use. For example, measure how many pages each employee is printing or make it more difficult to print my removing printers from employees’ desks. If going paperless sounds out of reach for the moment, consider becoming a paper-light office.

Think about ways to take World Paper Free Day home, such as setting aside dedicated time to scan documents and creating a personal digital workflow to manage documents.

“Enough is enough – it is 2014 and we are still drowning in unnecessary paper, at home and at work,” AIIM President John Mancini said in a press release.
