Conventionally, when we make payments, we receive a paper receipt. With the Smart Receipt service, you can check receipt information on your smartphone by having the store scan a bar code displayed by an app on your smartphone. The receipt information is sent to an electronic receipt center and managed as data. Use of this service makes paper receipts unnecessary, which contributes to the environment.
If all paper receipts in Japan were replaced by Smart Receipt, paper use could be reduced by an amount equivalent to the approximately 54,000 tons of A4 copy paper receipts consumed per year (13.5 billion sheets of copy paper), which has the potential of reducing CO2 emissions by 820.8 million t-CO2 annually(*).
