Document scanning experts can help councils hit green targets

April 7th, 2017

The UK’s push to go ‘green’ has been prominent for many years. However despite changes to everyday lives, such as the introduction of the plastic bag charge and recycling bins now being standard, the country is still behind where it could be with regards to meeting green targets.

Pearl Scan, one of the UK’s finest providers of scanning solutions, is highlighting how councils can help improve the green initiatives within their local area by leading the way and encouraging businesses within their county to take heed of their wastage and reduce their carbon footprint.

Naveed Ashraf, Managing Director at Pearl Scan Group said, “Councils are looked up to by all kinds of businesses in their area, so are in the ideal position to pioneer green initiatives in order to encourage them to follow suit and create a more eco-friendly county.”

Councils are the ideal organisations for pioneering green initiatives. Boasting reams of paper files, invoices and spreadsheets across departments, they can significantly reduce their costs by switching to digital means, while also improving productivity and staff morale.

Despite the UK’s push to become more energy efficient, according to latest figures, the country is still lagging behind the targets set out. Last year, the Committee on Climate Change highlighted that the UK is in danger of missing its EU-imposed 15 per cent renewable energy target by 2020.

Naveed, continues, “Obviously by 2020, we may not be in the EU, but that doesn’t mean that we should stop our green efforts. The country has come on in leaps and bounds over the last five years or so, and now more than ever, people are realising how much wastage they were contributing to. We must keep putting the pressure on and all do our bit to ensure the future of the world.”
