E-commerce is rising, publications are moving online, and people are keeping in touch remotely. Almost everyone and everything can now be accessed digitally, and these are just some examples of how the world is moving towards a paperless future. This paperless future also applies to the banking sector.
There is a need to go paperless to achieve a sustainable future. The paper industry alone has a significant impact on the world’s carbon footprint. To give a more concrete picture of the role of paper in banking, if 20 households in the U.S. decided to pay bills online and enroll in paperless banking, 1.8 million trees can be preserved in just a year. Going green in terms of finances is certainly the right way to go.
Aside from the positive effect of going paperless has on the environment, going digital also benefits people by way of convenience and efficiency. Through digitization, people can access information and services remotely and quickly.
The financial services industry is making the move towards digital banking to better access their customers and improve their customer service. Going paperless in the realm of banking simply does not mean paperless statements and digital receipts, because paperless banking encompasses digital onboarding, remote check deposit, loan services, and online banking transactions. This just shows how much paper will be wasted if people continue with the traditional way of banking with all those paper statements and forms.
Paperless banking can be done by financial institutions if they move to digital with the help of the Fintech industry. Through partnerships with Fintechs, banks can digitally transform and bring technological innovations to their customers.
