Version One Wins Green Hero Award for the Second Year Running

15 June 2007

Version One’s document management and imaging software has once again won a Green Hero Award. Version One was presented with the award in recognition of the positive impact its paperless authorisation solution is having on reducing organisations’ paper waste. This is the second year running that Version One has been presented with a Green Hero Award by UK environment group, The Green Organisation.

The Green Hero Award, which rewards environmental best practice worldwide, was presented to Version One by leading environmentalist, Professor David Bellamy OBE, and environmental industrialist, Jan Telensky, during a ceremony at the Kensington Roof Gardens in London.

Receiving the award, Liz Ebbrell, Version One’s Green Executive, says, “We’re delighted that the positive environmental impact of Version One’s software has once again been recognised. Our paperless authorisation solution, which significantly reduces paper use during the approval of business documents, cuts-down on the destruction of trees as well as CO₂ emissions. In fact, with over 100 organisations using our authorisation software, more than 600 trees are being saved from destruction every year. When this software is used in conjunction with Version One’s other paperless office systems, organisations’ paper use is reduced even more dramatically!”

Ebbrell continues, “Implementing environmentally-friendly technologies, such as Version One’s document management software, is fundamental to reversing the effects of climate change. If businesses are to prove their commitment to environmental best practice, they need to take advantage of the high-efficiency and low-carbon technologies on the market. As with document management, these technologies are not only environmentally sound, they also make great business sense.”
