Technology integration and its shift toward virtual business practices has proven very valuable in e-learning and cutting travel costs, but it has also been valuable to the Earth. Since travel is typically the biggest greenhouse gas contributor (GHG), web and video conferencing are the best way for all of us to reduce our CO2 footprint by cutting down on travel. Anytime someone is able to go online to virtually have a meeting “face to face”, there is no need to travel to that meeting, thus eliminating driving and flying emissions.
Remember the old days, when you would attend a meeting and be handed a paper copy of the presentation? Now you can directly record the entire virtual meeting, along with the presentation and the comments/discussions. Effectively this enables attendees to take the information back and share with other employees, who would not have otherwise been able to attend. Thereby, aiding in increased training opportunities and saved expenses.
