Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.

Greener Administration

03/01/2010

GreenAdmin: Our company commitment to the environment.

Once a paper and energy intensive operation, the administration of retirement plans is transforming into a more eco-friendly process. 

Beginning in 2006, Uniglobal realized the potential and benefit of a 'less is more' attitude towards designing, implementing, and administering to its clienteles retirement plans. That attitude fostered GreenAdmin, the internal mantra for a Greener approach to the way in which the organization provides its products and services.

Since the onset, the reductions to the impact on our environmental have been significant. Paper consumption, a once averaged 950-1,250 printed-sheet, per plan, annual task, in 2 years dropped to 450 sheets printed per plan.

By mid-2009, Uniglobal, through GreenAdmin, reduced paper consumption by 94% from the initial amount consumed for the retirement plan administration process. This equates to an annual decrease from 950,000-1,250,000 sheets of paper to merely 50,000-85,000 sheets.

In addition, energy and CO2 emissions have been reduced through newer technologies, fewer PCs, and ultimately the implementation of desktop virtualization.
