Survey: IR professionals see green benefits

Looking for even more fuel for your green strategies? Verizon Business and IR magazine conducted a survey of corporate investor relations professionals, and 87 percent said they believe that better carbon management can help lead to stronger long-term shareholder value for their companies, and that communications providers (like Verizon Business, naturally) can help companies realize their carbon reduction goals.

About 71 percent of respondents said their companies are already using audio/video and Web conferencing technologies to communicate with stakeholders, and a fair number also use the technology to communicate with interested parties, such as financial analysts and private shareholders. Some companies have embraced green strategies to become more socially responsible, and others perhaps as followers of a trend, but companies have not always been able to make full business sense of such moves. Surveys like this may boost their confidence.
