Pragmatic Conferencing now Awards AIR MILES reward miles to Companies Reducing their Greenhouse Gases by Conferencing
TORONTO, April 22, 2013 /CNW/ - Starting Earth Day, Pragmatic Conferencing, Canada's #1 privately-owned conferencing provider will be awarding customer's AIR MILES® reward miles for the carbon they save by conferencing instead of travelling.
In partnership with Canada's premier coalition loyalty program, the AIR MILES Reward Program, companies can earn reward 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 AIR MILES reward 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 reward miles.
Awarding AIR MILES reward miles 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 Canadian 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 AIR MILES reward miles to their customers: "With more than 10 million active AIR MILES Collector Accounts, we know how important it is to continue offering relevant and engaging opportunities to earn reward miles to Canadians", says Claudio Rodrigues, President of RMG Loyalty (authorized agent of AIR MILES Incentives).
Pragmatic Conferencing is launching the program on Earth Day- April 22, 2013 in Canada. 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.
