Our planet is an invaluable resource and we must do everything we can to conserve our many natural resources. One important need of the hour is to reduce our carbon footprints. As leaders of tomorrow and as individuals with the responsibility to change the world as we see it for the future generations we need to think of measures by which we can reduce the impact of our wasteful ways and one important step in this regard is reducing our carbon footprints.
One valuable move to this end is by having the business meetings online. Virtual offices and online meetings are growing ever popular in this new age of e commerce and if we can effectively do this then we will have accomplished much. Rather than using up paper each time and recording everything in space consuming files and paper records, we can contribute immensely to reducing our carbon footprint through online meetings. These meetings also add to the advantage by allowing personnel to work from home and not have to travel and carry all around resulting in loss of time and resources. One important way to reduce the carbon footprint and use online meetings effectively is by creating documents on applications that can be accessible to all. Of course, the authorization details need to be taken care of. We can avoid sending multiple emails on and on through shared documents by using a single location accessible to all necessary individuals of a team. Google apps offer just this advantage and help us to reduce our carbon footprint effectively.
Sending online meeting invitations can also be done in a similar way by using the calendar in the mail. An outlook calendar will reach all the pertinent members without sending emails back and forth again helping to reduce the carbon footprint. There is a simple procedure to add the names of people who are members in the meeting, the date as well as the time. Even being away from office is not a problem with all the necessary data on the outlook office calendar. It allows people to attend meetings form wherever they are with internet access and a system. Online meetings can be easily arranged with the right video conferencing tools or even via chat. It is of course not the same as seeing people face to face and gauging reactions but it does a lot in helping reduce the carbon footprint on the environment by making use of these simple tools to promote virtual meetings.
