Take a green initiative for your business with e-invoice
An invoice is generated whenever the goods and services are bought. This is a crucial step to initiate the payment process. There’s strong evidence that going paperless and adopting an e-invoicing solution saves money for your business. These cost savings are matched by revenue generating and cash flow potential.
It is estimated to use around 12 million trees to create approximately 30 billion paper invoices delivered across Europe annually. Additionally, the cost of paper billing, which includes people costs, stationary charges, postage costs, storage fees and also late payments – makes the cost per bill huge. Removing this traditional practice suggests the European Union (EU), will remove around three million tons of CO₂ from our mother nature.
Sustainability is one of the key factors for promoting e-invoicing. Many organisations in continental Europe and other neighbouring countries have already developed certain environmental policies within their overall corporate strategies and have encouraged the adoption of ‘green’ or sustainable business practices. By adopting e-invoicing, issuers are not only reducing the amount of paper used within their company but can also help optimise the entire supply chain.
Environmental impact by going green with e-invoice:
Yes, it is a fact that the e-invoicing solution can help with your green initiatives.
- E-invoices help your business to reduce the use of paper and other related resources like harmful chemicals, which helps to create a better environment. Moreover, this prevents waste in the environment and keeps our nature pollution-free.
- E-invoicing also reduces energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions and makes it environment-friendly.
- Digital processing of electronic invoices reduces the carbon footprint of traditional paper invoices in comparison with paper. On average, electronic invoicing is four times more environmentally friendly than paper billing.
- Going paperless is an environmentally sustainable practice. In the digital era, issuers and customers both have equally agreed to take the ‘green-friendly» approach to have a better nature for our future.
