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 Oneâs Green Executive, says, âWeâre delighted that the positive environmental impact of Version Oneâs 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 COâ 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 Oneâs other paperless office systems, organisationsâ paper use is reduced even more dramatically!â
Ebbrell continues, âImplementing environmentally-friendly technologies, such as Version Oneâs 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.â
