The three key elements of sustainability are Ecology, Economy, and Experience.

Let’s put the three elements into context:globe_in_hand

  • Ecology refers to how a building impacts the environment– we address that
  • Economy refers to how a company can save operational costs through sustainable business practices-we address that
  • Experience refers to the actual work place environment with sustainable business practices in place-we address that too

We consider all three key elements of sustainability, as we have done for years. All three key sustainable elements are interdependent. We design audio and visual communications systems that help businesses use less building materials, use less electrical power, cut their carbon foot print, and ultimately create a better work place environment and experience.

How are multi-media technology and sustainability connected? Glad you asked. One word:  Efficiency.

Video conferencing: Using video conferencing for meetings and telecommuting versus traveling saves on carbon emissions, time, and money, resulting in higher productivity, and a measurable ROI—your CPA and CFO will like this. There are valid reasons to meet in person, but as we move progressively further into our virtual worlds, the efficiencies of video conferencing will continue to shape our work habits and lifestyles.

Sound masking / white noise generating: Commonly referred to as White Noise, sound masking works in direct conjunction with LEED architecture. LEED architecture (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) is the design and management of eco-friendly building and space planning practices. LEED work spaces typically feature large, open area work spaces—and acoustics are compromised. Sound masking/white noise solves this. White noise is an engineered sound broadcast into a work space to create conversational privacy among building occupants. Visit our page on sound masking/white noise or Contact Us.

Mood Media / FCC Local Manufacturers & Distributors: Functional Communications makes a cognitive effort in ordering equipment from the most local manufacturing and distribution centers. By doing this, we do our part in minimizing the carbon footprint in the shipping process for our jobs. If we can use a distribution center in the Northeast instead of the West Coast — we do. If we can use a manufacturer in New England versus overseas — we will. At every opportunity, we use equipment with energy star ratings. We take every opportunity to be environmentally responsible corporate citizens. See our esteemed list of Partners.

For companies to “go green,” they need solutions that positively impact the environment without raising costs or sacrificing productivity. Implementing “green” practices enables companies to save money and improve efficiencies. Contact Us to see how our systems and services can help you infuse efficiencies into your business.
