Project Paperless Became an Environmental Responsibility Out of Love.
My grandfather was a farmer growing up in the mountains. He was the only person who owned a John Deer mid-size tractor in his small town. His job was to help local farmers develop and prep the land for crops and farming needs. I learned to love the land. Waking up consisted of listening to the roosters blast their synchronized sound, and hot sun rays coming into the room uninvited.
We lived walking distance from a very rich and clean river in the Caribbean, and spent hours bathing and cooling off for the rest of the day. Our ancestors taught us how to respect the environment by taking care of the land – after all, it was the primary source for food to many.
The Pain of Statistics – Harsh Realities.
There has been the argument regarding delays in government legislation and the brutal truth regarding the profit made from the paper industry. Paper consumption starts at the level of deforestation to the conversion of paper, to packaging and distribution. Statistics Portal STATISTA released data from 2011 to 2015 indicating the “Financial key figures of the U.S. forest, paper and packaging (FPP) industry” and a humongous Revenue amount of *96.1 billion ($).
40% of Americans understand the true concept of recycling and less than 20% really use the technique of “reuse”.
Environmental Impact Map – The Good and The Bad
6 Ways Project Paperless Helps the Environment Live Longer:
1. Impact on Environment
Can this be more clear? We maintain the forests! There will be little to no deforestation for the purposes of producing paper. We also stop the usage of machinery and fuel in relation to paper. Therefore, reducing the pollution associated with the process. There will also be a major impact in the process of recycling since there is little to no paper to recycle.
2. Saves Money
Paper cost. Ink cost. Real Estate. Power bills. Shipping costs.
3. Create Extra Space
Real Estate prices add-up and impact your ROI. Creating extra space with your savings will increase room for the extra toys you always wanted to get the sales department or bigger trucks for the delivery team.
4. Find Information Faster
Information is digital and not physical
5. Increase Productivity
Create Concise Workflows, Integrate Data with Other Processes | Departments
6. Allocate Employee’s Efforts – Properly
