Our paper efficiency project webinar, or ‘PEP talk’, was held successfully on Wednesday 10 April 2013, at 3pm. If you missed it you can see it online or download the slides here. There is an accompanying factsheet: Paper Utility Factsheet. Why not check out our other paper efficiency tools?

You know you need to use less paper, but where do you start? Paper is used for so many different purposes it can be baffling to know where you will get most benefit from efficiency efforts. The concept of ‘paper utility’ can help.  This 30 minute webinar will introduce the Paper Utility Matrix and present some examples of how it works. It will help you focus your paper efficiency initiatives so they will have most impact.

By analysing paper consumption in terms of both volumes and function, the EEPN’s Paper Utility Matrix can help you to work out which papers are really useful to your organisation and which ones are costing you money and causing most environmental impact, without actually serving a valuable purpose. This will enable you to target efficiency efforts without reducing the many benefits of paper for education, entertainment, commerce, health and sanitation.

Participants in this webinar had the first opportunity to get access to the Paper Utility Matrix factsheet, one of a series of useful tools being produced by the EEPN’s paper efficiency project.
