No Printing Day

No Printing Day

No Printing Day is a KPMG in Poland social and ecological campaign that we encourage firms and individuals to join.

No Printing Day – a social and ecological campaign by KPMG in Poland.

In 2012, KPMG in Poland initiated the No Printing Day social and ecological campaign to encourage as many individuals, firms and institutions worldwide as possible to refrain from printing documents for a single symbolic day: the first Friday in October each year.

Firms, institutions, and private individuals around the world use huge volumes of paper on a daily basis. We use printers at home, at school and at work, often giving no thought to whether all our printouts are actually necessary. While printing has become a part of our everyday reality, each printed page contributes to massive worldwide logging. We want to highlight the fact that by a simple change to daily habits we can limit logging considerably, thus contributing to the condition of our natural surroundings. Through a simple gesture that does not require great effort, we can make a contribution to protecting the environment.

Participation in the campaign is free, and you can join by going to the website (for firms and organizations) and Facebook (for individuals). No Printing Day takes place every year on the first Friday of October.

In order to increase the impact of No Printing Day on the environment, KPMG in Poland as the organizer also plans to plant real trees: the greater the number of individual and corporate campaign participants, the greater the number of trees.

The next No Printing Day will take place on 7 October 2016 – Take part in No Printing Day and turn off your printers!
