One million sheets of paper saved


Thanks to an in-house document reduction project within their European supply chain, ASSA ABLOY’s Entrance Systems division has saved 1 million sheets of paper over a one-year period.

In Czech Republic, the division reduced its paper used on production floor by more than 75 percent, with a total yearly saving of 150,000 sheets of paper. In addition, more than 360,000 sheets of paper will be saved as the digital archive has reduced the use of paper in the ordering process between sales and production in Europe by 80 percent.

In Sweden, the internal workflow for electronic billing has increased, thereby reducing the amount of documents to be printed, which saves three sheets of paper per invoice. Electronic Data Interchange (the order system between sales and production) usage in Europe has also increased from 75 to 80 percent with an average of six sheets of paper per order now being saved when the orders are sent electronically.
