How We Calculate Environmental Impact
Our calculations for environmental impact associated with reduced paper use are based on happiBe’s global usage across all business, which is generally updated annually and was most recently updated as of June 2020.
We estimate the number of pieces of paper saved by looking at three factors:
Number of receipts printed (based on average number of transactions)Number of leaflets printed (based on average paper advertising per business)Number of vouchers printed (based on average per business) Our model assumes that only 25% of business would print advertisement once a year, on average, and that the paper used would contain 10% recycled content.
1. Some environmental impact estimates were made using the Environmental Paper Network Paper Calculator Version 4.0. You can find more information at www.papercalculator.org. Paper usage habits and manufacturing processes can change over time, and happiBe reserves the right to periodically update the assumptions used to estimate the environmental impacts from using happiBe’s services, which may increase or decrease the environmental impact estimates presented.
Other data used in determining environmental impact estimates and equivalencies are as follows:
