Hats off to the UK for their ‘world’s first’ mandate on CO2 Reporting!

CO2 Neutral Conferencing, the world’s first and premium carbon neutral conferencing service provider, joins many green groups in their praise at the UK government’s decision to enforce their new mandate that ‘all firms listed on the London Stock Exchange have to report on the levels of greenhouse gasses they emit’.


9 out of 10 CEO’s in this group say sustainability is crucial to their success, however only 2 out of 10 record their carbon footprint currently.

Recording and calculating your carbon footprint can actually be straight forward once you have the correct procedures, tracking software and suppliers in place. Something we are proud to have had in place since the day 1. For any CEO out there are looking for consultants do let us know and we’ll out you in touch with the right people.

The important part is what comes after, there is no doubt in my mind that in the future there will be a carbon tax, when that day comes these large companies have to be doing their absolute best to be more efficient and reduce their carbon footprint to the absolute minimum to be more productive and deliver higher profits to their shareholders.

One of the ways this can happen is through conferencing technology to reduce a customer’s carbon footprint. Rather than traveling long distances for face-to-face meetings – you can keep your communication channels constantly open whilst simultaneously reducing your carbon footprint and your corporate travel expenses by using conferencing technology as as alternative.

To give you an idea –  if 100 employees use video conferencing once a week instead of commuting, it would save the equivalent of a forest the size of five football fields.

This is not a new concept, however one of the areas that CO2 Neutral stand out from the entire conferencing provider/manufacturing industry is that we have a entirely innovative software and consultancy division that can analyse your business travel, track every video conference you conduct, promote conferencing vs travel to your employees then tell you in an annual report exactly how many carbon emissions (per employee) you are saving. Including an ROI calculator for technology vs flights. No one else can do this and adds massive value for reporting back to the board of directors.

The UK government are hoping that the introduction of the world’s first mandatory requirements for emissions reporting will trigger other countries to adopt similar rules – let’s hope many follow suit!
