Green Tip: Carbon footprint calculator for online meetings and virtual classrooms
I just learned about the coolest carbon footprint calculator - it's a plugin to Acrobat Connect Pro that shows each attendee how much CO2 was saved. Just download the Footprints free trial and upload into a Connect share pod and you are ready to track.
Here is some more info from the website:
Footprints calculates the approximate location of each meeting attendee automatically based on their IP Address and uses this to determine how far they would have had to travel to the Host location if the meeting had not been held virtually. It then calculates the CO2 savings as well as the financial savings that have been generated as a result of using an Adobe Connect Pro Meeting. Footprints is fully customizable - pick your corporate colors for the theme and include your corporate logo on the pod to show how serious your organization is about reducing its Carbon Footprint. Attendees see their personal savings for this event, the collective savings for the entire meeting and a running tally of the total savings your organization has generated across all meetings that included Footprints.
Thanks Chris for sending along!
