How to Make Meetings Green

Happy Monday Everyone,

With the growing attention on global warming, businesses are under pressure to be more environmentally conscious. And there's no doubt about it - business travel is a huge contributor to pollution.

Did you know that a flight from London to New York creates an average 1.2 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions?

Or that driving 500 miles per week creates an average 9 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year?

So how can you cut emissions to help the environment without sacrificing productivity?

Simple - collaboration and web conferencing services.

Your employees can work from anywhere, and stay connected to co-workers, customers, vendors and partners who are critical to business.

They can give a presentation, review documents, or demonstrate software without getting in a car or flying on a plane.

An average employee with a one way commute of 22 miles can save up to 81,000 MJ of energy by telecommuting. That's about 50% of the annual electricity consumption of an average household!

Saving the planet is not as difficult as you might think. Especially if you use simple to use, all-in-one VideoLive Conferences.

Your children and grandchildren will appreciate your efforts in making a greener world - by making your meetings greener.
