Videoconferencing impact on Reducing Travel
2010-02-18 13:48:23 UTC
Does anyone know of a study that establishes an emissions reduction factor for videoconferencing?
Obviously not every videoconference replaces a face-to-face meeting involving travel, but over many instances there should be some factor that emerges.
We are building a social networking app that encourages videoconferencing as an alternative to travel and would like to provide an legitimate emissions reduction figure for videoconferences. Thanks in advance,

I would be very happy to answer any questions you have about our iphone app Twavel. The main purpose of the app is to help groups like your own to encourage people to make green behaviour changes. We also do a lot of other Commuter Challenge app work for the Province of BC, besides our iphone app. You can reach me by phone at 250-294-1581.

Twavel - An iPhone App that uses Social Marketing Techniques to Promote Greener Transportation Alternatives

We are a software company based in Victoria, Canada who specialize in climate action tools. We have just released our first consumer application, an iPhone application we call Twavel (combines twitter-like social networking with a travel emissions calculator, hence the name). Twavel makes it fun for you to make green travel choices and shows how even little differences you make soon add up to a significant benefit to our environment.
While designing and coding Twavel, we made a concerted effort to embody several of the key principles of cbsm in our app. We would like to get the feedback of fsb forum members to help us improve Twavel and to design future apps employing cbsm. If you are willing to help out, we have promo codes available so you can download Twavel for free. Of course you will need an iPhone to run the app. Visit the Twavel website at http://www.netscribe.ca/twavel.
Note: Twavel will be offered in the App Store for Free during Earth Week, April 19-26.
