HP Visual Collaboration
Many employees of businesses and organizations spend a significant amount of time traveling by plane. In addition to the major financial cost, this also has a sizable impact on the environment due to aircraft emissions.
A roundtrip flight between San Francisco and Singapore can generate 3.3 tonnes of CO2e emissions per passenger. Add the time and expense of an average trip, and business travel comes with a big bill, both for companies and the environment.
HP Visual Collaboration allows businesspeople to have frequent, meaningful collaborations without travel. With immersive, real-time video conferencing, employees can walk down the hall for a face-to-face meeting that used to take them across continents. HP provides a complete portfolio of solutions from studios to room-based and desktop systems, making it simple to meet the needs of any business.
The savings can be sizable. Within one 36-month period, HP Visual Collaboration has allowed HP and its customers to save 174,956 tonnes of CO2e that would have been generated had the meetings taken place in person.1 That’s like removing 33,453 vehicles from the road for an entire year or eliminating more than 143,818 round-trip flights from New York to London.
HP Visual Collaboration is transforming businesses, extending the power of personal connections everywhere, while helping them spend less on travel and lower carbon emissions.
- 1 For air travel avoidance, an average of 1,609 miles each way per round trip (average of short, medium, and long-haul flights at HP), and a CO2 footprint per mile of 199g CO2e ( www.cleanairconservancy.org) is used. Car travel to/from airport on both ends is also considered. In the 35% of meetings that avoid travel, only 1.4 people are assumed to avoid travel in each meeting. Usage depends on a company’s travel and meeting policies.
