Calculate your impact on the environment

Wondering how many trees you could have saved last month?

A woman is holding a globe in her hands, calculating her impact on the environment.

The effects of paper production on our environment are frequent and far-reaching. Deforestation, massive amounts of energy and water and increased carbon emissions are just some of the debilitating effects of producing paper. Today, paper alone accounts for around 26% of total waste in landfills.(1)

Payables automation creates significant business benefits and has a powerful impact on the environment by reducing paper invoices and payments. According to industry data, it takes about eight trees to produce between 1,000 to 2,000 pounds of paper. With a typical 500-sheet packet of paper weighing five pounds, that’s 10,000 to 20,000 sheets per tree.(2) Applying those stats across Tipalti’s customer base, we have helped save an average of 94 trees per month.

Do you want to see how many trees you could be saving each month? Input how many invoices you print and the number of envelopes you use, and we’ll show you just how much of an influence you could have on keeping our planet green.
