QUANTIFYING THE BENEFITS OF TELEPRESENCE
In the morning you sit down for a meeting with someone from Beijing, China. By the evening you’ll be picking the kids up from soccer practice. It’s not time travel, it’s the power of a technology available today called AT&T Telepresence Solution®. Telepresence delivers actual-size images via full HD Video and spatial audio that creates the experience of being in the same room with a remote participant, even though you’re not. In addition to saving the time and expense associated with your travel, eliminating travel also can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
All of this sounds great in theory, but how exactly do you measure those economic and environmental benefits?
We set out in 2010 with the help of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) to answer that question. Our work found significant global environmental and financial benefits for businesses that substitute Telepresence for some business travel.
