A recent study by the Carbon Disclosure Project, an international organization dedicated to greener business practices, estimates that US and UK businesses could save $19 billion over the next 10 years by using TelePresence technology instead of taking business trips, according to the San Jose Business Journal.
The study said organizations could see $400 million in savings the first year alone, easily offsetting the cost of their initial investment.
TelePresence technology doesn’t just help the companies’ bottom lines, it also greatly reduces their carbon footprints. Over the next decade, TelePresence could cut those organizations’ CO2 emissions by 5.5 million metric tons. That’s equivalent to taking 1 million vehicles off the road for a year.
An individual business with four TelePresence rooms can reduce its CO2 emissions by 2,271 metric tons over five years, equivalent to the annual greenhouse gas emissions from more than 400 cars, according to the Carbon Disclosure Project.
The study said TelePresence technology also provides non-monetary incentives for employees, including increased productivity, better work-life balance and faster decision making.
