Goes Green for Earth Day

Conferencing activity translates to environmental contribution

Glendale, CA. April 22, 2010 — Thursday is Earth Day, and is doing their part to go Green. Many companies already take advantage of conferencing services to reduce their carbon footprint, allowing them to conduct business effectively and efficiently, while keeping aware of environmental impact.

Now FreeConference is taking it a step further: FreeConference will contribute enough money to the Arbor Day Foundation to plant 1,000 trees, assisting their efforts to fund tree planting where new trees are desperately needed.

“Conference calling is the greenest way for people to meet and collaborate productively, whether one–on–one, or with up to 150 participants around the world,” says Ken Ford, CEO of Global Conference Partners, FreeConference’s parent company. “All kinds of businesses and government agencies are seeking ways to minimize the CO2 emissions associated with frequent travel by car or plane, and conferencing is the perfect solution. Besides obvious benefits to the environment, conference calling is the quickest and most effectual method of exchanging information and ideas.”

Teleconferencing is becoming increasingly popular among successful companies seeking creative ways to increase productivity, as a rewarding way to accommodate the work–life balance of valuable employees.
