Environmental Sustainability Shift
A primary motive for companies to shred paper is security. However, an increasing motive is environmental sustainability.
The impact on the environment of document shredding is tremendous! Why? Because shredded documents can be transformed and re-used for other purposes. Companies that participate in environmental sustainability can dramatically reduce their negative impact of waste on the environment, save trees, and promote positive recycling while securely destroying their documents.
Many companies are committed to paper recycling to improve sustainability. It is a win-win situation; reduce waste and harmful environmental impacts. Benefits of environmental sustainability include: cost savings, competitive advantage, employee retention, customer loyalty, regulatory compliance, risk management, and doing the right thing.
