Is Video Conferencing & Telepresence Usage a Good Indicator of a Green Company?

The latest issue of Newsweek lists The Greenest Big Companies in America – the majority of which use video conferencing and/or telepresence to help reduce travel. Coincidence?

While use of video technology was not listed in the criteria for selection, it is certainly one of the fastest and easiest ways for a company to drastically cut carbon emissions by eliminating the need for travel.

So, should lists like this include video usage among its criteria for the “Greenest” companies? I think so. What do  you think?
