Videoconferencing

Recognizing travel is one of the largest sources of carbon emissions, companies of all sizes are increasingly turning to the savings in time, cost, and productivity of virtual meetings instead of travel. It's a novel idea for many executives, but more business is being conducted virtually via conference calls and videoconferences. Though not quite the same as a real-life meeting or convention, videoconferencing technology has undergone an upgrade in recent years. You may not be able to forgo every business trip, but you can take a chunk out of your carbon travelprint by opting to "meet" from the comfort of your office chair. The latest HD video systems now pay for themselves the very first time three people choose to avoid one international trip and elect to use video instead.  Check out the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Conference Initiative.
