Paperturn’s Sustainability Statement


At Paperturn, we believe in the power of sustainability and are committed to making a positive impact on the environment. This page is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of Paperturn’s sustainability efforts, highlighting the steps we’ve taken to minimize our ecological footprint and promote a greener future.


Why Sustainability Matters to Paperturn


We at Paperturn understand that the choices we make today have far-reaching consequences for future generations. That's why we're dedicated to minimizing our environmental footprint and contributing to a more sustainable future. Our commitment extends to every aspect of our operations. Providing our customers with sustainable options is an integral aspect of our mission. Our platform has been purposefully designed to assist businesses in their transition to digital publications, a transformation that not only reduces paper waste but also contributes significantly to the reduction of their carbon emissions. We are dedicated to continuous improvement, constantly refining our practices, adopting innovative technologies, and adapting our strategies to remain aligned with the latest trends and best practices.

Sustainability via our Flipbook Software Solution


Sustainability is deeply ingrained in our core mission, which revolves around offering a software product that champions sustainable practices in businesses. By providing a digital publishing solution that encourages online publishing over traditional print, we play a pivotal role in reducing the environmental impact associated with paper production and distribution. Our commitment to sustainability is a tangible, everyday choice that helps save trees, reduce waste, and minimize carbon emissions. With every flipbook created, we contribute to a greener future, and that's a responsibility we wholeheartedly embrace.

Sustainability with Green Data Centers


At Paperturn, we've made a conscious choice to partner with Amazon for our cloud hosting and infrastructure services. By leveraging Amazon's data infrastructure, we ensure the reliability, scalability, and security of our services. Amazon's commitment to sustainability aligns with our own values, as they continually work towards the adoption of new environmentally friendly approaches. In 2022, 90% of the electricity Amazon used came from renewable sources. Each year, replenishment projects that are either completed or in progress return 2.4 billion liters of water to communities. Furthermore, Amazon is constantly enhancing its efficiency, which involves optimizing the use of electricity and cooling in its data centers by scaling and predicting their performance. This proactive approach enables them to lower the energy requirements for operating these data centers. Research indicates that when businesses migrate their on-premises workloads to Amazon Web Services (AWS), they can significantly reduce the carbon footprint associated with those workloads. Initially, this reduction can be nearly 80%, and it can reach as high as 96% once AWS operates entirely on 100% renewable energy.
By aligning with Amazon’s ambitious sustainability goals and their focus on renewable energy, energy efficiency, responsible water usage, and waste reduction, Paperturn benefits not only from their commitment to environmental responsibility but also from the positive impact it has on our own sustainability efforts.

Sustainability in Paperturn’s Business Practises


Environmental responsibility is at the heart of our mission. At Paperturn, we place a high priority on eco-friendly practices that minimize our environmental footprint, including championing energy-efficient operations, implementing waste reduction strategies, and sourcing materials and resources sustainably. We understand that every action counts, and by prioritizing these practices, we aim to lead by example, demonstrating our dedication to preserving the planet's resources for future generations. 


Paperturn’s Social Responsibility

At Paperturn, our commitment to sustainability encompasses not only environmental initiatives but also a strong dedication to social responsibility. Equality and diversity are core values at Paperturn and are more than just words to us. Inside our walls, we strive to create a workplace where everyone feels empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work. Our hiring and lifecycle processes are designed to prevent discrimination against our people, regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, neurodiversity, disability status, citizenship, or any other aspect which makes them unique. We believe that fostering a diverse and equitable workforce not only enhances our organizational strength but also demonstrates our sincere dedication to sustainability in every facet.


Going Paperless for a Sustainable Future

Our commitment to sustainability goes hand in hand with the services we provide. As an almost paperless office (we only use paper when absolutely necessary), we've wholeheartedly embraced the digital revolution. This aligns seamlessly with our core offering of digital publishing software. At the same time, we use digital tools like Google Suite for document creation and storage. As a paperless office, we are dedicated to reducing paper waste and minimizing our environmental footprint.

Waste Management at Paperturn


Moreover, we are dedicated to practicing responsible waste management in the Paperturn office. We have established a waste sorting system, involving separate bins for recyclable and non-recyclable materials. These bins are categorized into specific waste types like paper and cardboard, plastic, glass, and organic waste. In addition, we actively participate in recycling initiatives such as deposit programs, ensuring that plastic bottles and cans are returned to designated deposit machines at supermarkets. This approach helps us reduce the amount of garbage that goes to landfills. We believe in taking care of our environment, and by recycling and separating waste, we're doing our part to keep our workplace clean and green. It's all about being responsible and making sustainable choices in how we handle our waste.

Reduced Travel and Remote Options

Additionally, we minimize unnecessary travel for business purposes. Our employees prioritize digital communication tools and virtual meetings, reducing the need for frequent travel. When essential travel is required, we encourage the use of public transportation whenever possible. By allowing our employees to work remotely, we've significantly reduced the need for daily commuting and the associated carbon emissions. This practice not only aligns with our commitment to environmental responsibility but also empowers our team to achieve a healthier work-life balance. Moreover, it enables us to operate with a smaller physical footprint, reducing our energy consumption. By embracing eco-friendly business practices, we aim to set an example in our industry and inspire positive change in our employees and partners.

Smoke-Free Work Environment at Paperturn

As part of our ongoing sustainability efforts at Paperturn, we are proud to enforce a strict no-smoking policy within our workplace. This policy is not only about promoting a healthier and safer environment for our employees and visitors but also aligns with our commitment to environmental responsibility. By prohibiting smoking on our premises, we contribute to cleaner indoor air quality, reduced health risks, and the prevention of fire hazards.
