BRUSSELS, 12-12-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — Proximus is striving for a responsible use of paper and to that end has been encouraging its customers for more than 10 years to opt for the electronic bill. From a survey (commissioned by Zoomit), it appears that 73% of Belgian e-mail users would agree to electronic billing if their provider proposed this.
The awareness-raising campaigns of Proximus are bearing fruit. Today, more than1 million Proximus customers receive an electronic bill.
The electronic bill makes things easy for users. As soon as a new bill is available, customers are sent a text message and/or e-mail with their bill attached. Customers can also opt for the electronic bill via Zoomit and easily pay for their bills via their familiar online banking system.
A simple & reliable system to manage bills
Managing the bills in the MyProximus is simple and reliable: there is a useful overview of the last 24 bills, less paperwork and no risk of losing bills. Some banks allow customers to pay their bill via the link in MyProximus, or they can pay through their familiar Internet banking program.
A yearly saving of 4km paper
Less paper is good for the environment. To moderate paper use, Proximus asks its customers not to print out their electronic bill. In this way they jointly save 36 million sheets of paper annually which corresponds to a paper mountain of almost 4 km. Care for the environment is important for Proximus. To emphasis Proximus’ engagement for the environment the company supports the “Kids for a GoodPlanet” project in which schools can take part in educational workshops on nature and biodiversity organized by GoodPlanet Belgium.
