Environmental issues are of utmost importance to our customers, so Iron Mountain has launched their latest Green Report to help communicate the environmental benefits of your Secure Shredding program. In addition to providing you with the resources and expertise you’ll need to create, implement and monitor a secure and compliant information destruction program, Iron Mountain recycles 100% of your shredded materials. The Green Report contains a total of all paper shredded and recycled during your specified time period, as well as helpful descriptions of your environmental benefits, such as trees and water saved.
Many organizations are setting ambitious climate goals and reporting on their sustainability efforts. As part of this process, organizations are engaging with their suppliers to assess their upstream and downstream environmental impact. Iron Mountain’s Green Report provides you with tonnage data that can be used in ESG reporting and applied toward corporate recycling and landfill diversion goals. Customers are encouraged to share this data with their sustainability departments to ensure all paper waste data is accounted for.

Iron Mountain has leveraged the Paper Calculator from the Environmental Paper Network, a respected, credible, and influential voice on pulp and paper sustainability issues across the global supply chain and paper’s life cycle. This publicly-available life cycle assessment methodology allows users to have a better sense of the environmental impact of paper and helps shape more environmentally-responsible practices.* Iron Mountain customers can easily access and run the Green Report through TMIron Mountain Connect.
For existing customers who have been leveraging the green report and have questions on how to compare the newest figures, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
*The Paper Calculator uses the most available data to calculate the environmental impacts of paper production, the majority of which is from the North American paper industry. While this data is used to understand environmental impacts by organizations worldwide, there are regional differences in processes which are not captured in the Paper Calculator.
