It’s no great revelation to say that business activity has environmental consequences. But you don’t have to be causing oil spills or pouring toxic waste into the Amazon basin to feel rightfully guilty. Office paper alone makes up a staggering portion of non-recycled waste.
What’s the answer to office paper waste? Stop printing? While ‘zero paper’ business process is unrealistic, digital signage and industrial display screens can help minimize paper waste while bringing a host of other perks such as:
This worrying showreel of paper-waste facts from The World Counts should be enough to have most office-dwelling accounts payable execs shuffling awkwardly away from the printer.
Ready for it? According to The World Counts, paper alone accounts for a jaw-dropping 26% of all landfill waste.
We’ll skip the other alarming stats about the total hectares of forest cut down to-date in the year, the month, the week, and even the day that we wrote this. You know the drill. We’re all responsible for reducing our impact on the world we want to leave for our children. Business digital signage and industrial display screens can play a surprising role in working towards those goals.
Unlike static signage, flyers, posters, presentation slides, memos and reports, sustainable digital signage can communicate messages to specifically targeted internal and client audiences.
Even a modest inventory of business digital screens can satisfy key internal communications needs usually fulfilled by literally tonnes of paper that ultimately ends up in landfill, replaced by yet more deforestation and illegal logging.
Less obviously, business digital signage and industrial display screens also save the mind-numbing volumes of water it takes to print paper. Common internet wisdom has the figure at around 50,000 liters of water needed to make 10,000 sheets of paper—which just one average office employee will print in one year, allegedly.
While digital signage isn’t carbon neutral, it can reduce business environmental footprint over time if you select the right hardware setup proportionate to your business needs, and then scale slowly.
