Achieving our social goal in a sustainable way

We want to achieve our goals in the most sustainable way because we believe that every action, however small, has an impact on our society, our environment and our economy.

No poverty

Thanks to Zerocopy and all its partners, students save money on their essential educational expenses. Our social impact to date is 1.000.000EUR saved by the Belgian students.

Quality Education

Scientific research has shown that studying on paper leads to higher cognitive performance when compared to studying on screen. It also goes faster. Through Zerocopy, all students, regardless of their financial and social background have access to the best study medium and thus to better quality education.

Decent work and economic growth

By making quality education more accessible for everyone, more people will graduate with a degree. This leads to higher chances of finding decent work and leads to higher economic growth. In return, a higher educated population offers a better work force with higher spending power to support the economy.

Reduced inequalities

92% of all students prefer to study on paper. Among the 8% who prefers to study only on digital screens, the main reason is because of the high cost of printing. The financial background of these people, prevents them from access to the best study medium, which only increased inequalities. By offering a free printing service for students, we make sure everyone has access to the best study medium, which reduces these inequalities.

Responsible consumption and production

As a young and aware company, we want to achieve our social goal the most ecological way possible. Our paper is carefully selected. All courses are printed on FSC-labelled paper which means we follow the sustainable forestry guidelines. Did you know that our paper supplier actually plants more trees than they harvest?
