Telepresence Reduces Emissions While Providing Financial Benefits
A study by the Carbon Disclosure Project finds that travel substitution through video communications technology could reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by 15% by 2020, while saving $19 billion.
“Work is an activity, not a place,” says CEO Randall Stephenson of AT&T, the company that sponsored
a recent study commissioned by the Carbon
Disclosure Project (CDP) of the financial and environmental benefits of business travel
substitution through video communications, or telepresence. The study was produced by Verdantix, a research firm that advises
corporations on climate change and sustainability initiatives.
