Current Builders has Corporate Meeting to introduce the new "Synergistic" Current Builders and launch the new paperless environment.

Current Builders is committed to the success and increased in adoption of sustainable construction practices. As part of this commitment to have a positive impact on the communities we serve, we have launched a broad-based program within our organization to go paperless within by the end of 2012. The overall impact of processing, handling and storing paper documents in the workplace is astounding from a financial, environmental and resource perspective. Not only can the inefficiencies attendant with paper-based bottlenecks be cumbersome on day-to-day operations, but the improper storage or loss of these documents can cripple or devastate a business. Below are some of the impact paper has on our environment:

  • Each day one billion photocopies are made
  • The average American office worker is estimated to use a sheet of paper every 12 minutes, and is responsible for the disposal of 100-200 pounds of paper every year
  • Paper files are doubling every 3.5 years
  • The paper industry is the 4th largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions among United States manufacturing industries, and contributes 9% of the manufacturing sector's carbon emissions
  • If the United States cut office paper use by just 10%, it would prevent the emission of 1.6 million tons of greenhouse gases - the equivalent of taking 280,000 cars off the road
