Annually, this is estimated to save more than 82,000 sheets of paper. Figure 5: Diverted hazardous waste from 2014 to 2016 Reduction of Paper Consumption The key to reducing waste is eliminating consumption of the materials that generate waste. In 2016, Toronto Hydro continued the initiative to automate and use electronic forms in place of paper, and set duplex printing as default for most printers. Over 2015 and 2016, the five projects outlined below saved approximately 3,505,000 sheets of paper and resulted in a life-cycle GHG reduction of more than 38 tCO2e. ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH AND SAFETY SOFTWARE Toronto Hydro uses an online web based application for many aspects of environmental, health and safety management, including document control and the tracking of inspections and investigations. This software has reduced the amount of paper that was previously used for recording inspections and investigation. Additionally, the software provides electronic access to procedures, which previously needed to be printed.
