How VoIP Helps the Environment

In recent years, an increasing number of businesses have pushed to decrease their carbon footprint, both for environmental reasons and to save money. It was first seen as a bonus or a marketing tool but businesses have now incorporated it to their company ethos. They all aim to reduce their use of paper, electricity, and transportation, but they have overlooked a vital component that might simplify their operations, whilst keeping a green sheet.


That is switching to a Voice over IP platform.


Using the cloud


Having your VoIP system hosted in the cloud lowers energy costs and lowers the cost of having various types of technology around, such as office phones, which are on all the time and consume a lot of energy. It also eliminates the cost of phone lines by allowing any device with an internet connection to function as a phone.


Travel costs


Businesses are increasingly adopting VoIP, which allows employers and employees to connect, collaborate, and operate from nearly anywhere. VoIP is cheaper than travelling or commuting to a meeting, and it also saves you time and energy.

Employers are continually allowing employees to work from home in order to reduce their carbon footprint. With VoIP systems, they can utilise their business phone number and have their contacts to hand as it’s all cloud accessible.


Paper usage


Paper is no longer needed thanks to VoIP and cloud services. Many VoIP platforms allow you to share documents over their systems, which saves you time and money again. Businesses choose VoIP to reduce their carbon footprint because of features such as note-taking, white-boards, and call/video recording.




Overall, there is no reason not to adopt VoIP in your company because it significantly minimises your carbon footprint. Employees can communicate more effectively via the cloud since they can call from any device with an internet connection, without the need to travel.
