VIG installed a modern video conferencing system in its business headquarters in 2013. Simultaneous audio, video and data transmission make the system ideal for virtual meetings, thereby rendering various business trips unnecessary. Video conferences can now be used for meetings with partners or other colleagues, e.g. in the Czech Republic, where the business headquarters of Kooperativa and ČPP also satisfy all of the technical requirements. In addition to reducing travel costs, this environmentally-friendly technology also makes it possible to reduce CO2 emissions.
