Messages such as “Go Green, Go Paperless” are misleading. Our new information sheet explains why.
Many leading organisations, including banks, utility companies and telecommunications providers, urge their customers to go paperless with claims that paperless bills, statements and other electronic communications save trees, are “greener” and better for the environment.
These statements are greenwashing and hugely damaging to an industry that employs in the UK alone, 116,000 people (1,096,000 EU), in more than 8,400 business (115,700 EU).
Our new information sheet provides valuable facts and statistics that should be considered before organisations encourage their customers to switch to digital communication for environmental reasons.
