How far we have reached in creating paperless offices?Paper is made of wood. Even though we recycle paper, the usage of wood can't be avoided to meet the demand for paper. To get enough wood we have to cut trees. Cutting trees is again an environment unfriendly issue. So it is the need of the hour to reduce the usage of paper.
Now emails are very popular and we are communicating with others through these emails only and we have almost stopped writing letters and posting them. Even in offices also we started storing soft copies only and to the maximum possible extent we are avoiding taking hard copies. Even after all our efforts also we rarely see paperless offices. Only some IT companies might have achieved this. But all other offices are using paper. The quantum might have been reduced to some extent.
All offices should start working towards this paperless office? It is better to store all the information as soft copies and avoid taking hard copies and filing them. What is the take of other members on this subject?
