Moving from place to place by car, plane and train, people increase the amount of carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) in the atmosphere. For example, a single person travelling from Europe to New York produces about 1.5-2 tons of CO2.

Videoconferencing can reduce the need to use public transport, both within the city and when travelling long distances, what will result in decreased amount of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere.

In comparison to business trips, one videoconference can spare the atmosphere many tons of CO2. Videoconferencing is therefore an environmentally friendly technology. The OECD has announced that in order to significantly reduce CO2 emissions, it’s enough to invest 0.5% of the world GDP in 2030 and 2.5% in 2050. In order to do this, it’s necessary to introduce “a global tax on all greenhouse gas emissions, starting with 2$ per ton of CO2 and increasing it to 150$ per ton in 2050.” Or, more simply, suggests the UN agency, we can start replacing business trips with videoconferencing, which is much more economical and environmentally friendly.

Using videoconferencing, companies can contribute to the protection of the environment, save money on travel expenses and at the same time improve their productivity. A few years ago videoconferencing was accessible only to large companies, because of its complexity and implementation costs, while today’s online videoconferencing is the easiest and the cheapest way of having remote meetings, which are as effective as regular in-person meetings. And, in fact, a personal computer (or a tablet/smartphone) and an ADSL connection are enough to meet invideoconference with your customers, employees and suppliers, even if they are thousands of miles away from each other.

Think about using videoconferencing before planning your next business trip.

LESS STRESS, LESS EXPENCES, LESS CO2 IN THE ATMOSPHERE!
