Trees in the fog.

Let's agree to protect the world's forests.

Why? We can’t live without them.

Forests serve as the Earth’s lungs, absorbing carbon emissions and releasing oxygen back into the atmosphere. In other words, forests both clean the air and provide us with the oxygen we breathe. In fact, more than 20 percent of the world’s breathable oxygen is produced in the Amazon rainforest alone.

DocuSign is naturally forest-friendly.

Since 2003, DocuSign and its millions of customers around the world have replaced billions of sheets of paper with our eco-friendly, digital processes, which, in turn, saves the trees required to make paper.

How much paper can you save?

Log into your DocuSign account and see how much paper and other resources you’re already saving. Or if you’re not yet a DocuSign customer, use our impact calculator to estimate the resources you could save with DocuSign.

Making a multi-million-dollar impact.

As part of the DocuSign for Forests initiative, we will donate $1.5 million in 2019 to organizations doing critical work to preserve the world’s forests. The first $1M in donations will be made to the Jane Goodall Legacy Foundation to support Dr. Goodall's continuing fight to protect the planet's resources.

Our employees are making an impact, too.

Through the DocuSign IMPACT initiative, our employees have volunteered thousands of hours at organizations promoting healthier forests, including urban forests in the communities where we work and live.

What you can do.

Be smart about your paper use: Before printing, ask yourself whether it's really necessary. If you print, use paper with high recycled content and labeled with a credible forestry certification. Print double-sided and reduce margins and font size. When you're discarding paper, recycle. And, need we say it, use DocuSign, because signing electronically saves paper, which reduces the use of wood and trees.

To help you save even more, here are two helpful links: the Environmental Paper Network's Paper Purchasing Guide and the Paper Reduction Guide.

Customers, take the pledge.

Take the pledge to be smarter about paper, and we will donate 1% of your expanded revenue with us in 2019 (up to $1M in total) to organizations that help protect and enhance the world’s forests.

We pledge to use forest-friendly paper, to reduce its use, and to recycle responsibly.
