Audio and Web Conferencing Services Make the World A Greener Place

April 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 67

Every year, Earth Day marks the anniversary of what many people consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. What once started as a relatively small movement in a handful of cities now encourages millions of people all over the world to look at their day-to-day routines and find ways to be more considerate of the environment and help protect the planet.

One of the best ways for your company to 'go green' is by decreasing your business's carbon footprint, which is defined as: the total amount of greenhouse gases produced to directly and indirectly support human activities, usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide. Sound complicated? It's not! One of the easiest and most efficient ways to decrease your business's carbon footprint is to take full advantage of evolving technology. As budgets shrink, a considerable number of companies are cutting back on business travel and instead are employing web and audio conferencing services.

Although the documented advantages of audio and web conferencing services are numerous, there are still some companies that have yet to get the memo. This is unfortunate, especially considering how far modern conferencing technology has progressed since its pioneer days. For instance, today's leading conferencing providers - InterCall and PGi - offer services that are available on almost any device, (laptops, tablets, and smartphones included) along with a robust list of features that provide a powerful, engaging, and effective virtual meeting experience.

Moreover, conferencing services allow you to meet with participants in multiple time zones at the drop of a hat. This increases the time your team is able to spend in-house, consequently improving their work-life balance - which will undoubtedly make them more effective employees.

That being said, there are certain circumstances that require in-person meetings. If you find this to be the case with your next meeting, here are a few tips for hosting a more eco-friendly conference:

  • Utilize natural light in your conference room whenever possible
  • Provide reusable mugs as opposed to plastic or Styrofoam (offering mugs with your company's logo is also a great marketing idea)
  • Avoid printing unnecessary handouts. If they are needed, use recycled paper and be sure to print on both sides

Additional Information

In celebration of Earth Day, trade in your tickets, unpack your bags, and check out one of today's leading conferencing services. Not sure which one is the best fit for you and your business? Have no fear; contact one of our professional account managers today and let us help you find the ideal solution for your business!
