In partnership with Points.com, companies can earn points/miles for all of their audio conferencing calls. Using the distance between the conference host and all participants, Pragmatic calculates the carbon emissions saved using conferencing services versus traveling. The carbon emissions saved are awarded back to customers in the form of points/miles.

For consumers looking to make their business activities more environmentally friendly, the rewards have never been better, and as our global business market grows, so does the need to make the switch: "Global warming is directly linked to higher carbon levels in the earth's atmosphere. The business community, along with its related global real estate, contributes to 40% of the world's carbon emissions" said Geoff Moffat of Green Business Standards. Now, with Pragmatic Conferencing, not only can companies reduce global greenhouse gases, they are awarded for this behavior with points.

Awarding points for reducing their carbon footprint by conferencing is an initiative James Baskin, Chairman and CEO of Pragmatic Conferencing, believes will make a big difference in the North American adaptation of conferencing versus travelling, "Sustainability is a huge part of our company culture, and we want our customers to be rewarded for their sustainability efforts.  Pragmatic's goal is to have our customers see the benefit of reducing their carbon footprint by using conferencing and reward them for making changes that help the environment".

Pragmatic Conferencing is the only company in the conferencing industry to offer points to their customers through the Points.com Loyalty Direct Program: "We are thrilled to partner with Pragmatic Conferencing to make it possible for them to reward businesses and consumers for lowering carbon emissions with this unique incentive" said Rob MacLean, Chief Executive Officer of Points.com.

Pragmatic Conferencing is launching the program on Earth Day- April 22, 2013 in the U.S. Earth Day is a global initiative with more than 1 billion participants world-wide. Earth Day 2013's focus is "The Face of Climate Change", the faces, animals and places affected and those stepping up to do something about it.
