Reduced business travel can have a marked effect on the environment, and all the technologies at our disposal today would mean that businesses wouldn’t suffer for lack of such travel. Probably with this in mind, Arkadin Global Conferencing has announced the launch of Climate Care day, a day when businesses large and small, are urged to replace business travel with remote meetings, for one day.
It may work well to encourage businesses to move towards remote meetings, and what is asked for the “Climate Care Day” could well be applied for most parts of the year, except when travel becomes an absolute necessity. Businesses could not only reduce their carbon footprint, but also save time and cut back on costs associated with such travel.
The Climate Care Day would be observed on March 26, a day ahead of the WWF’s Earth Hour. The day is supported by WWF and will, hopefully, elicit a positive reaction from businesses.
