Achieving sustainable development is perhaps one of the most difficult and one of the most pressing goals we face. It requires on the part of all of us commitment, action, partnerships and, sometimes, sacrifices of our traditional life patterns and personal interests.

Mostafa Tolba, Chairman of the Commission on Sustainable Development

Sustainability is based on a simple principle: Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations.

Sustainability is important to making sure that we have, and will continue to have, the water, materials, and resources to protect human health and our environment.

By the very nature of what we do, AccuShred is committed to promoting sustainability in the workplace. Because we recycle nearly 100 percent of the material we shred, AccuShred helps your company achieve its sustainability goals.

Did you know that for every ton of paper AccuShred shreds and recycles, 17 trees are saved?
