Paperless Accounts Payable endorsed by Rainforest Rescue

Rainforest RescueConverga are enjoying a strong relationship with Rainforest Rescue with our Silver Partner status and the on-going planting of trees in the Daintree Rainforest on behalf of our clients and team members. Recently we strengthened that relationship by gaining an endorsement from Rainforest Rescue for our Paperless Accounts Payable (PAP) solution.

The endorsement was granted due to the proven benefits our PAP solution offers our clients to help reduce their carbon footprint. First released in November 2008, Converga’s Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of PAP showed that for every 1 million invoices, up to 800 tonnes of CO2 and 3200 trees can be saved if the invoices are processed digitally.

Recently Rainforest Rescue purchased Lot 46 – Cape Tribulation Road, which is approximately 18 hectares; a 1 hectare area has been specifically set aside for growth of the “Converga Forest”. Converga plants 50 trees on behalf of every new digital client, and 10 for every non-digital client. For our team members we plant 1 tree on their 1st anniversary with the company, 5 trees for 5th, 10 trees for 10th and 15 trees for 15th.
