Make like a tree and “leaf” paper billing behind with Rogers and Fido!

Back to news

To celebrate Earth Day, Rogers and Fido in partnership with Tree Canada will plant a tree for every customer who switches from paper billing to e-billing between April 10 and May 31 via their MyRogers or Fido My Account.

In addition to being environmentally friendly, e-billing provides customers with extra benefits including the ability to access bills anywhere via mobile device/laptop, ability to check full usage details (talk, text & data), as well managing account settings and receiving emails when their bill is ready.

Since 2011, Rogers has stepped up its efforts to help the environment by switching customers to e-billing, saving more than 747 tonnes of paper. On top of this, Fido has saved more than 141 tonnes of paper via e-billing conversions and other eco-friendly initiatives.

On top of this, Rogers has been named one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for the last five years. Here are a few reasons why:

  • We reduced our annual greenhouse gas emissions by 3.8% in 2015 from 2014.
  • By 2025 we aim to reduce our energy usage by 10% and greenhouse gas emissions by 25%, based on a 2011 established benchmark.
  • In 2015, we replaced 263 vehicles in the Rogers fleet for more efficient models. The upgrade resulted in a reduction of fuel consumption by 29,212 litres of gas, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 67 tonnes.
  • In 2015, we reduced our total paper consumption in our work spaces by 21.3% from 2014.

    Although I like others have switched, I must acknowledge that in our case, it did not reduce paper – we still need to print out our paper versions for business purposes, along with the reality that for myself, I work more efficiently with paper and pencil – call me old school, I am, and at 60, I have learned to do a lot of things on computers, there are some things, like budget tracking and expenditures that just come more efficiently to me on paper than. When you spent 40 years of your life doing double entry book keeping, there are just some things that are more effective.

    In addition since you only keep 18 months, which for family analysis, we then print out the copies – so I am considering moving back to paper from you again, as all it is doing is transferring the cost to me, and also making it a lot of duplication. I have to save the file, print it, where as before, I just opened the letter, put it in the processing file folders, and then sat down once per week and did the work.

    Just a comment.

    I admire reduction of paper, but from my perspective, let’s be honest here, it is also a major cost saving from your company, and your bottom line is always extremely critical to you. I don’t believe that reducing paper, either than financially driven was the initiative no more than it was in the organization that I worked in.
