    Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970. On April 22nd of each year more than 192 countries participate to support environmental protection. ICM Document Solutions services and products support environmental protection every day, every year.

    Using electronic files means no more printouts or copies; which saves paper. If you add a content management system, all future documents are created, stored, retrieved and distributed electronically; saving even more paper. All this reduces a company’s carbon footprint and helps the environment.

    An EPA study estimates producing 10 million pages of paper destroys 2,500 trees, burns 56,000 gallons of oil, fills 450 cubic yards of landfill space and consumes 595,000 KW (kilowatts) of energy.

    Here are some points to ponder:

    • ICM has scanned over 207 million paper pages for its clients
    • Once scanned, paper is shredded and recycled for reuse
    • 2,500 trees are saved for every 10 million paper pages avoided
    • The US Department of Energy puts average tree cover at 700 per acre

    So, indirectly, ICM products and services save thousands of trees and many acres of forest. That’s pretty good!

    If the culture of your company promotes environmental awareness, going paperless can have a significant impact. What’s more, going paperless is smart for many more reasons than helping the environment.
