When it comes to today’s competitive economic market, even a small advantage over your competitors can really make the difference in whether or not you win contracts, and having the right green credentials is a good selling point. Considering the environment in how you run the business can often save money too, but it can make a big difference to your carbon footprint too.
Looking at how a conference call can help in replacing, or reducing the frequency of having face to face meetings can be very beneficial in terms of saving the need to spend money on petrol, which each attendee would normally have to be paid in order to travel to the meeting. As well as the drop in carbon emissions, it can also save time too.
You can also look at the benefits of not having to have a physical venue when you use a conference call instead of hosting a meeting. Not only does getting the space available have financial implications, you can also find that the energy required to heat and light a sizable room for a meeting is quite a lot, so avoiding this is another big green plus.
The big aim for many companies is to be able to declare themselves to be ‘carbon neutral’, and this can be a big selling point, depending on the market that you are trading in. Whichever your industry, teleconferences can help in saving the environment as well as your bank balance. (ref).
