BT Cuts CO2 Footprint 15% With Videoconferencing
British Telecom claims to have reduced its carbon footprint by 97,000 tons of CO2 per year, that’s 15 percent of its CO2 use, by using phone conferences and videoconferencing to cut back on staff travel for meetings, Business Week reports.
BT has eliminated 860,000 face-to-face meetings. Each call also saves around £178 in travel costs and frees up £120 in management time for more productive tasks. Over the last year this equated to a £238m total saving.
