Nationwide Green-Out Headlines Company’s Earth Day Activities
Reston, VA – March 18, 2010 – America’s 130 million workers generate 1.68 metric tons of CO2 per year through commuting, business travel, computer use and other related activities. So this Earth Day employees at Communiqué Conferencing, the world’s leader in conferencing and collaboration services, helped save nearly a ton of CO2 just by staying put for one day.
During Communiqué’s 2009 “Green-Out,” employees will have the option to work from home one day during the week of Earth Day and use conferencing to conduct business. In 2009, nearly half of Communiqué’s employees participated in the program.
“In a recent survey, we saw that 66 percent of companies make travel reduction their number one priority for working green,” said Adelphi Kennedy, Director of Corporate Communications at Communiqué Conferencing. “We can help them reduce travel with our conferencing services, and show them how easy it can be to implement programs like the Green-Out.”
In addition to the Green-Out, Communiqué employees will volunteer at events across the country to clean up and improve their communities; all employees who participate in an event will receive a reusable grocery/tote bag so they can do their part for the environment 365 days a year. Communiqué’s sales team will devote Earth Day to introducing customers to new conferencing technologies that can help them skip the face-to-face meetings and reduce their carbon emissions.
“Companies are finding that audio, video and Web conferencing are easy-to-use and not only save time and money, but also help the environment,” Kennedy said. “Tools like conferencing empower individuals to make the right choices about when to travel and how to connect with business partners. And it’s an easy shift to make, because it doesn’t’t require significant process changes or equipment.”
