Several years ago, Segal moved to paperless files and archiving.
Our system uses best practices developed over the years. We have seen significant improvements in the speed with which we are able to access information for our clients and our own use. We’ve also been able to repurpose space in our suite due to the reduction in storage needs.
REDUCING PAPER USAGE
Best of all, our ‘think before you print’ mentality has seen a real and continuous reduction in paper usage. For example, photocopy paper usage dropped by 8.9% in 2007 versus 2006, both were “paperless” years and yet we still improved.
ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE PAPER CHOICES
Mohawk Options 100% PC White was created around the concept of environmental sustainability. It reduces the need for forest resources by being made entirely of post-consumer reclaimed fibre. It is also process chlorine free; made with wind-generated electricity; and certified as forest friendly by the Forest Stewardship Council, an international environmental group dedicated to forestland preservation (or ancient forest preservation.) The post consumer recycled fibre content of this grade is certified by Green Seal, a non-profit organization devoted to environmental standard setting, product certification, advertising claims substantiation, and public education. By choosing this paper we have made significant reductions in our environmental impact.
