Defeating an arch villain.

What’s that villainous practice that threatens otherwise heroic reputations for battling C02 emissions? Demon air travel! Business air travel so dramatically increases a company’s CO2 footprint that even those best at championing lower emissions can be defeated.

How is Swiss Re fighting back? High-tech teleconference rooms with virtual conference tables where those in the room face those who are not in the room at all, but are instead seated at their own virtual conference table miles away. In practice, it seems like everyone’s seated at the same table. Nobody’s moved, nobody’s boarded a plane, nobody’s wasted any travel time – or energy.

(The good guys win again!)
