Paper Saving

A lot of paper is being consumed during daily office activities. Reducing paper consumption could help save trees from being cut down, preserve energy resources and clean water needed for producing paper. This is also about saving the budget money of the company and maintaining consumables and office machines in working condition for extended periods of time.

Since 2017, the company has been holding Paper Free Days twice a year − on the International Day of Forests in spring and during the Paper Free Day international campaign in autumn. “Let’s make rational use of paper not only today but every day!” − this is what the company campaign is calling for. The printers in the company offices in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk and at the assets are set up to print on both sides of the paper automatically. The YSoftSafeQ system, already implemented, is activated with an employee’s ID card helps to optimise and control printing in the company.
