In a world that pays close attention to carbon emissions, businesses are increasingly finding ways to cut down on pollution and save money and energy. From installing solar panels to investing in biomass boilers, being green is on everyone’s agenda. One way in which organizations can become eco-friendly is to cut down on paper by using online fax.

Nearly 14 million trees are cut down every year to produce fax paper for businesses, and the pulp mills used in paper manufacture produce large amounts of carbon emissions, leading to water, land and air pollution. The paper industry is the fifth largest consumer of energy in the world, with 4% of all energy use being used in the industry.

Sfax is an online fax service that allows users to send, receive, and manage faxes from their desktop, laptop or portable device. It negates the need for paper, ink, and bulky fax machines as the entire process is condensed into the digital application.

Business computers are already running most of the time, so there is little to no extra computing power used when sending faxes online. Sfax’s servers run all of our customers’ accounts, so the energy used is considerably less than if each customer were to use inefficient traditional fax systems.

Migrating away from traditional fax and towards online fax will save your business money on energy bills, paper and ink costs. The speed and efficiency of online fax will also save space and time as bulky fax machines become unnecessary. Faxes are delivered direct into the user’s inbox, and can be edited, digitally signed and replied to without having to print a hard copy. This also helps to protect sensitive information as faxes cannot be accidentally left on the fax machine to be viewed by a third party.

For businesses trying to cut down on costs and make a more eco-friendly footprint, Sfax provides a flexible and environmentally friendly approach to communication.
