I think all RIM professionals should think about the business benefits of their RIM program and policy directives as part of larger business initiatives to “Go Green”. Not because it is cool to be environmentally conscious, but because it helps them align their thinking with that of the executives on savings and being perceived a good corporate citizen. If we only retain what is required, and as few copies as needed, then we save loads of money, time and energy. Start thinking like an executive—its good for your career.
BTW-Americans received 17 billion mailed paper catalogues in 2008—56 for every American (Wall Street Journal, October 16, 2009). So we are far from paperless.
