A responsible business must be committed to reducing pollution and all the data available seems to show that paper recycling provides a number of environmental benefits.
The most recent studies indicate that paper recycling leads to a 70% energy savings when compared to the cost of manufacturing non-recycled paper.
Likewise, using recycled paper reduces the amount of raw material used. This means 12-15 less trees are cut down to produce paper for every tonne of recycled paper we put in circulation.
Plus, paper recycling leads to water savings of nearly 80%, an emissions reduction of more than 70% and less waste at tips and ecoparks.
With these types of measures, we have been able to reduce our CO2 tonnes by 4.53% (2019 vs. 2020) which has saved 62.5 adult trees from being cut down.
These kinds of actions through which we can take full advantage of the useful life of materials only leads to benefits by saving on the raw materials and energy used to produce them. It also leads to important benefits for the environment in avoiding an excessive use of materials and preventing contaminating waste.
