On Earth Day, think Videoconferencing
Celebrated on April 22 and now coordinated by the Earth Day Network (EDN), Earth Day is a globally recognized event with a focus on environmental activities and issues, which among other things includes the lowering of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions. “When people hear CO2 emissions, videoconferencing is probably not their first thought,” said Barry Sawayer, CEO at Trinity Video Communications. “But, for those in the business world with a need for improved employee and stakeholder interaction, it should be.”
According to a report by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), which performed an in-depth analysis of fifteen multi-national corporations, videoconferencing is a useful tool for business communications and the environment:
- The use of videoconferencing can avoid the production of millions of metric tons of CO2.
- An individual business implementing four telepresence rooms can reduce its CO2 emissions by 2,271 metric tons over five years. These reductions are equivalent to the annual greenhouse gas emissions from over 400 passenger vehicles.
- From an economy-wide standpoint, US and UK businesses with annual revenues of more than $1 billion can cut nearly 5.5 million metric tons of CO2 emissions by 2020 as a result of deploying a total of almost 10,000 telepresence units. These reductions are equivalent to the annual greenhouse gas emissions from over one million passenger vehicles.
- US firms can reduce CO2 by 963,000 metric tons by 2020, a total of almost 4.6 million metric tons in cumulative cuts in CO2. These reductions are equivalent to the annual greenhouse gas emissions from almost 880,000 passenger vehicles.
