Decreasing carbon footprint from flight travels

Fibertex Personal Care has expanded significantly over the years and has become a global company with production facilities and business partners around the world. Following this, a natural need for global presence has resulted in a steadily increasing number of travels in general and flight travels in particular.

As this is a major contributor to carbon footprint, we wanted to find alternatives to physical meetings demanding us to travel long distances for relatively short meetings.

For this purpose, we invested in a high-end Webex videoconferencing system to provide our employees worldwide with an alternative to physical meetings.

This new tool was received very well by our colleagues and fast became a valued tool in their daily work. It is used by all employees and has replaced a considerable part of the previous business travels. It is clear that the decrease in flight travels made by our colleagues on a yearly basis significantly decreases our carbon footprint.
