SAN FRANCISCO—April 22, 2015—Today marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, a global holiday that unites more than 1 billion people in 192 countries to participate in campaigns designed to create awareness around important environmental issues while encouraging sustainable lifestyles. Individuals and organizations celebrate this day of civic observance by participating in activities like conserving water, riding bikes to work, and cleaning up polluted areas.

Each year, many Earth Day activities center around reducing paper consumption —and with good reason. In the United States alone, workers produce more than 4 trillion paper business documents each year. The average worker uses about 50 sheets of paper every day and in a single year consumes the equivalent of a 100-foot-tall Douglas fir tree. In the age of digital innovation, we should all strive to do more than just eliminate paper from our lives on one day each year.
DocuSign empowers individuals and organizations of every size, industry and geography to make every day Earth Day. With DocuSign’s Digital Transaction Management (DTM) platform, everyone can get to YES! faster – on sales contracts, loan documents, rental agreements and more – without ever using a piece of paper. Say goodbye to printing, faxing, scanning, and overnighting documents to complete transactions, and hello to a greener world.
DocuSign’s Head of Corporate Marketing Gregor Perotto adds,
“Earth Day is a great way for individuals and organizations to rally around a common, important cause and participate in green actions. But its bigger purpose is to remind us to live every day like it’s Earth Day. Our customers are doing just that. To date, DocuSign users have saved the equivalent of 1 million square feet of forest by going fully digital. That translates to 60,000 trees that are still standing tall. We’re excited to help more and more customers be successful every day, and in turn reduce the impact on the precious environment around us to live every day like it’s Earth Day.”
