Business travel is coming under closer scrutiny: In Germany alone, companies spend
approximately 50 billion euros on business travel every year.
To partially offset this expense, many companies are replacing business trips with online
meetings. With this technology, customers and partners are able to communicate with images and audio over the Internet, while special presentation functions reinforce the personal aspects of a meeting. Software licenses, Webcams, and headsets are worth the investments. Companies that use Web meetings discover new methods of collaboration and reduce their own output of greenhouse gases.

He sees climate change as a real threat, especially in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which may have given a boost to the President, who is perceived as showing strong leadership. The mega-storm also highlighted the differences between the Republicans and Democrats on the role of government. Cap and trade legislation and regulation for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions will be revived in Obamaís second term. Affected industry sectors can expect an up tempo on regulation as the issue is fought out in a still divided Congress.
