DocuSign Sustainability Campaign
Emcee Singapore: Did you know that to make just one piece of A4 paper, 10 litres of water goes down the drain?! I’m so amazed at how DocuSign eSignatures and other digital platforms are helping businesses to push the boundary of sustainable innovation.
A collective commitment to going paperless has a huge impact on the environment. Just to share a nugget from the DocuSign ebook “Is paper costing us the earth” on how paper is made.
Producing one tonne of non recycled paper requires 1,440 litres of oil, 2.3 cubic metres of landfill space, 4,000 kilowatts of energy, and 26,500 litres of water. To make just one piece of regular A4 paper, 10 litres of water is used. Demand for paper is expected to double before 2030, despite accounting for around 26% of total waste at landfills.
With these sobering figures in mind, one way to save the earth is to switch to a paperless agreement process like DocuSign eSignature. DocuSign customers around the world have saved over 55 billion sheets of paper, 6 million trees, 26.8 billion litres of water, 2.1 million tonnes of CO2, over 900,000 tonnes of wood and over 145,000 tonnes of waste since the tool was first introduced.
The e-book shows how businesses can start their sustainability journey by going digital and introducing new technology to save costs, save trees and enhance productivity. Going paperless also boosts customer loyalty and brand reputation.
In short, it pays to go paperless.
