Technology Solutions that Eliminate the Need for Travel

Back to Transportation

The widespread use of advanced telepresence, virtual reality, and virtual collaboration platforms that enable people to conduct meetings, collaborate, and have other experiences without the need for travel could enable significant reductions in CO2 emissions form the transportation sector by significantly reducing demand for both air travel and ground transportation. The development of technology advances that allow these communication tools to provide experiences that approximate or improve upon in-person meetings will be critical to unlocking the full emissions reduction potential of this suite of tools.
