Green alternative to travel with Telepresence success recognized

CINCINNATI, April 24, 2009 /PRNewswire/ -- The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE: PG) was announced as one of International Data Group's InfoWorld's Green 15 award winners for 2009 for its success in reducing travel through the adoption and implementation of its Video Collaboration Studios (VCS) using Cisco's Telepresence technology. This honor is part of the InfoWorld's Green 15 special feature published yesterday on InfoWorld.com.

Companies around the world have embraced green technology to drive projects and develop products aimed at boosting energy efficiency, trimming waste, and reducing or eliminating the use or the production of harmful substances. The InfoWorld Green 15 awards recognize the 15 most innovative IT initiatives that fall under this umbrella of sustainability.

P&G is constantly looking for efficient ways to utilize available resources. To better enable employee connection and communication and to deliver on its renewed commitment to sustainability, P&G identified, and ultimately implemented, a green strategy supported by a high-end communications system. Telepresence is not only a good business decision but it also has tremendous environmental benefits.

P&G began deploying Video Collaboration Studios across its global network in October 2007 with the goal of implementing 43 studios in just nine months. Today, there are more than 50 studios up and running saving the company millions in travel costs with the expectation that these saving will continue to grow as more studios are added and video enabled collaboration tools become embedded in business practices.

A significant benefit of the technology is the ability to reduce the environmental impact of traveling. From July 2008 to December 2008, VCS helped P&G eliminate 6000 international flights - the equivalent of taking 3000 cars off the road for a year.

"VCS is a powerful part of an organization's plan to reduce costs, reduce our environmental footprint, increase productivity and ensure results-based collaboration. You can be in Guangzhou in the morning, Rome for lunch, and Caracas in the afternoon - and still be home for dinner," says Laurie Heltsley, Director, Global Business Services Strategic Projects, The Procter and Gamble Company.

P&G was also recently recognized by the Financial Times and Just Means with the 2008/2009 Social Innovation Award for its work in shaping the new world of sustainable and socially responsible enterprise. P&G was also recently recognized in Corporate Responsibility Officer Magazine's 10th Annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens List(R), which ranks companies according to their environmental, climate change, human rights, philanthropic, employee relations, financial and governance practices. P&G was ranked 14th out of the 100 companies included on the list. For more information on P&G's commitment to sustainability, visit http://www.pg.com/ sustainability.
