With Polycom HD telepresence, video, and voice solutions travel is reduced, carbon emissions are reduced—and everyone wins. In fact, unified communications (UC) solutions are changing the way organizations communicate—and that's a good thing for our planet. Although we may be geographically distant from our fellow workers, customers, and partners, we no longer have to travel to be effective. Thanks to UC technology we can meet virtually anytime and from anywhere.
Consider this: "Every time two people meet over video instead of traveling roundtrip—for example, between LA and New York—they save the carbon emissions that would be the equivalent of taking one car off the road for a year.* (Source: Conservation International)
