“This results in unnecessary wastage of paper, as the data is already presented on the screen. For the convenience of all attendees, the presentation can also be shared to everyone’s phone via email or WhatsApp,” said the DC.

He agreed they may need hard copies for the in-depth analysis, but stated that the requirement was a small fraction of the amount of paper being wasted.

“Please make efforts to go paperless in your review meetings. This one small step will drastically reduce your paper requirement while also cutting expenses. The environment will benefit too with fewer trees being chopped off for paper,” said Tembe in his appeal to all departments.
