Environmental considerations for Audio Visual and Video Conferencing.

Why Green AV?

Why Green AV?

Global warming is a major cause of concern for everyone because climate change is affecting every country in the world. It is a high time that we start caring for our environment for a better and longer life ahead. Many industries across the globe are taking green initiatives to make their businesses more environment friendly and video conferencing is no different. Video conferencing is already a cost cutting solution for many organizations but in a way it also holds importance for a cleaner environment.

Video conferencing is all about connecting people, conducting meetings and communicate internally or externally. Before video conferencing, managers from all over the country or globe used to fly or drive to an important meeting such as an AGM. As a result, it created more carbon emissions, used more fuel, created more pollution through smoke and so on. With the help of video conferencing all these things have been reduced by more than 50%. Every member of the meeting can join and contribute via internet instead of being in the very same room.
