ICT to Help the Environment: Video Series

I occasionally comment on examples of Information Communications Technology  (ICT)  services benefiting the environment. In fact this intersection was my original inspiration for CSRPerspective and formed the material for some of my first posts.

As I look around the community, I realized that there are many ways that ICT services impact our every day lives.  So, I’ve embarked on a video journey.  This journey takes us from inside executive offices, to transportation systems, inside grocery stores and even in my own home.

Everywhere we go, there are examples of how IT and communications are working to benefit the environment.

In this first video, I’ve worked closely with conferencing partner, Polycom to identify the benefits of video teleconferencing solutions including carbon reduction.  .

As you watch this video, and have ideas of other areas where the benefits of ICT can be correlated to sustainable objectives, please send me the idea.  I want to provide a broad array of examples during this journey.
