InterCall Announces Partnership With Climate Action to Promote Green Benefits of Conferencing

CHICAGO, January 3 /PRNewswire/ --

- Global conferencing leader aligns with Sustainable Development
International and United Nations Environment Program for worldwide
communications initiative

InterCall, the world's largest conferencing provider, is now a Platinum
sponsor of Climate Action, a joint development of Sustainable Development
International and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) promoting
environmentally-responsible business.

Through an upcoming book, Web site, and marketing program, InterCall and
Climate Action will educate businesses, governments and non-profits on what
they can do to reduce their carbon footprint and reduce their impact on
climate change. Other environmentally friendly best practices, new
technologies and practical initiatives to help companies and governments
create a more sustainable business will also be shared in the publication.
Features authored by government entities, intergovernmental organisations,
the public and the private sector will raise awareness of the latest market
trends, environmental threats and opportunities in response to climate

"InterCall is proud to support an organisation that will be a powerful
agent for change in the Green movement," said Carolyn Campbell, Senior
Director of Marketing for InterCall. "While InterCall has already launched
its own environmental-awareness initiative,, through
the power of this partnership we will have a much stronger voice in helping
businesses realize the carbon savings they can achieve through conferencing
and collaboration services."

Climate Action brings together six influential organisations concerned
with the successful mitigation of climate change: UNEP, Ceres and its
Investor Network on Climate Risk, The Carbon Trust, FTSE4Good and the Pew
Center on Global Climate Change.
