Use Video Conferencing—Save the Planet

Increase the use of video conferencing in your company to help fight global warming

By Nina Parker

The evidence is overwhelming: the Earth's climate is in crisis. This year the leading international network of climate scientists has concluded that global warming is a reality, and that the actions of humans are to blame. Therefore, it is our moral obligation to take action now to slow the course of global warming. To help save the planet, we must implement policies in our organizations to change not only our own behavior, but that of our fellow employees.

The crisis of global warming

The Earth's climate is in crisis. Increasing amounts of heat-trapping greenhouse gases are being released into the atmosphere, and this is causing the climate to become warmer. This warming trend, which has been especially noticeable since the development of industrial economies, is called global warming. Many scientists believe global warming has influenced our planet's temperature, precipitation, storms, and sea level. This can mean disastrous consequences for the Earth and its population, since parts of the planet may eventually become less habitable.

New studies are finding that consumers are placing more value on doing business with companies who are green, and employees would rather work for organizations who they perceive to be environmentally ethical.

The Green Curve

If we all worked from home one day a week, we could cut 143 billion pounds of carbon dioxide a year. Americans traveled 614.5 billion miles to and from work in 2001. If all commuters worked from home just one day a week, we could save 5.85 billion gallons of oil and cut over 65 million metric tons (roughly 143 billion pounds) of carbon dioxide each year. And at home, no one looks at you funny when you sing along to the radio.
