So your business has embraced cloud-based unified communications as a way to reduce costs, boost productivity, and improve business agility. But did you know that it can also help reduce your carbon footprint?
While in the past there’s been little talk about the “green” benefits of cloud-based unified communications, that’s changing as sustainability becomes more of a primary focus for organizations. In fact, 45% of CEOs believe that sustainability will be very important to the future success of their business.
Star2Star is committed to creating and delivering products and solutions that improve business communications while using the earth’s resources responsibly. For example, the company uses its own products, StarVideo™ and StarChat, to work collaboratively and reduce travel. The company has also implemented a number of environmentally friendly policies within the organization.
So how can Star2Star’s best-in-class cloud-based unified communications solution help you go green?
- Less Travel: Air travel is considered one of the biggest “environmental sins.” Ponder this: One round-trip flight from New York to Europe or to San Francisco creates a warming effect equivalent to two or three tons of carbon dioxide per person. With cloud-based unified communications tools, such as video conferencing, you can connect face-to-face with colleagues and customers without incurring travel costs or harming the planet.
- Less Energy: Legacy PBX systems take up enormous amounts of space and energy. Star2Star’s hardware is smaller than other devices. It uses far less power, takes up less space, and generates less heat.
- Less e-Waste: Did you know that e-waste represents two percent of America’s trash in landfills, but it equals 70% of overall toxic waste? Having a centralized communications system mean less e-waste when equipment eventually comes to the end of its life.
