Learn how Iron Mountain digital solutions can help you accelerate your digital transformation initiatives to become a paperless organization
Like the air we breathe, paper is such a part of our daily lives, it’s almost invisible. But as governments race toward net‑zero greenhouse emissions by 2050,1 sustainability advocates are looking at everything. And the paperless movement is building momentum.
Consider that 50% of business waste and 26% of landfill waste is paper.2 Business correspondence alone releases 750 thousand metric tons of CO2 annually— which would take 12 million trees 10 years to offset.3 The negative impact of paper on sustainability is clear.
Environmental sustainability is not the only negative impact of paper. Reams of physical paper documents lead to silos of digital and physical information, lack of integrated workflows, and increased risk of data loss. They lead to compliance violations, and simply not having a full and accurate accounting of information. Record and information managers are stuck without a way to manage siloed and growing data sources holistically and strategically. Meanwhile, users spend valuable time looking for, and waiting for, documents, manually sifting through information for insights.
Today, nearly every organization can benefit from a paper‑free or paper‑light office with a digitally enabled workforce. Digitizing paper‑based information and combining it with digital‑native information in a unified workflow gives you power to outpace the competition by protecting sensitive data, maintaining regulatory compliance, boosting efficiency, and deriving value from physical and digital data sources—all while helping reduce the impact of global climate change.
