Caring for Earth
On April 22nd, more than one billion people around the world will participate in Earth Day 2012. People from all walks of life will express their appreciation for the earth and will demand action on the part of individuals, businesses and governments to address our environmental problems.
The bad news about our environment according to Daniel Sitarz, author of Greening Your Business, is that “every environmental problem we face today as a society has its root cause in a conscious business decision.” Environmental problems we face today include global warming, CO2 emissions, pollution and the depletion of natural resources such as water, energy and our forests.
The good news about our environment according to Daniel Sitarz, author of Greening Your Business, is that “every environmental problem we face today as a society has its root cause in a conscious business decision.” Yes, the good news and the bad news are the same. While business is the most significant contributor to our environmental problems, it can make the most significant contribution to the solution. Every business – small, medium, or large – needs to integrate environmental sustainability into their core business strategies.
Fujitsu Limited, a leading provider of IT-based business solutions believes information technology can transform not only business and our personal lives but society itself. Fujitsu believes IT can play a significant role in reducing society’s burden on the environment. Fujitsu has made a conscious business decision, a commitment, to help solve the environmental problems the world faces today. Fujitsu has made “caring for the earth” one of their top three priorities.
Fujitsu fulfills this commitment in two ways:
- By reducing their environmental impact from their business activities, and
- Helping customers reduce their environmental impact.
Fujitsu is an established leader in the Document Imaging industry delivering innovative scanning solutions that help customers solve a major environmental problem – paper consumption.
Fujitsu scanners are manufactured in harmony with nature. Great care is given to reduce the impact of our manufacturing on the environment, to adhere to regulatory guidelines and to establish environmental goals and objectives. Fujitsu scanners can help your organization with a good business decision – to move toward a paperless office.
Document Imaging can be used to convert paper to digital resulting in a single copy being stored, managed and delivered without being printed, copied and shipped. Reducing reliance on paper can save trees and natural resources such as water and energy, can reduce waste and pollution and can decrease the world’s carbon footprint.
It’s time to snap to it and join Fujitsu in caring for the earth. ScanSnap scanners with their one button ease of use can be used to convert your paper to digital. ScanSnap’s Partner Products can help you transition from a primarily paper environment to a predominately digital one. Making this conscious business decision will yield significant environmental and economic benefits.
