Business users confirm that there is a link between being green and higher business performance.
This report also shows that Top Performers scoring high on the Green Quotient had 3 times more customer satisfaction than Poor Performers (organizations scoring low on the Green Quotient), 4.7 times more employee satisfaction and 1.7 times more revenue per employee.
Other key report findings include:
- The reliability, accessibility and quality of video conferencing is the most significant variable influencing the study’s result.
- Counterintuitively, Top Performers don’t use disincentives for business travel leaving it to the discretion of employees as to the most effective use of their time and company resources.
- It’s not just about green technology adoption – but about green practices and management attitudes that influence corporate culture on questions like encouraging public transit and teleworking.
Recommendations for each class of enterprise analyzed are also presented in the report. Overall, enterprises need to upgrade the use of telepresence and high definition video technologies, broaden the scope of energy reduction initiatives and integrate their recycling initiatives with local 3R (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) municipal waste programs.
