Office staff still wasting paper

Office staff still wasting paper
A new study has found that offices are suspicious of electronic archives, meaning that recycling targets are a long way off for most businesses.

According to the research from AIIM, over half (62 percent) of essential documents are archived in paper form, with less than a third of offices destroying the originals after scanning them for inclusion in electronic archives.

John Mancini, the company's president, has said that offices are not taking advantage of the search functions and organisational capacities of electronic archives – as well as the environmental and economic benefits of reducing paper usage.

Currently, the EU paper industry is the only sector included in the EU Emissions Trading System to have successfully reduced emissions, through exceeding its own goal of 66 per cent recycling by 2010.

Its recycling rate was 66.6 percent in 2008, with a reduction in primary energy use by 2.9 per cent in the same year.
