How XpertEye applications help reduce carbon footprint and save money

Climate change

There is no question that climate change is happening; the only arguable point is what part humans play in it. - David Attenborough, British naturalist and broadcaster


The climate crisis represents a significant challenge in our era, impacting every corner of the globe. With soaring energy prices posing challenges for both individuals and businesses, today we'll explore how we can reduce our carbon footprint. Additionally, we'll discuss how AMA as an organization assists clients in minimizing their carbon emissions and cutting costs.


What is a carbon footprint?


Mike Berners-Lee, the author of The Carbon Footprint of Everything, defines carbon footprint as "The total of all the greenhouse gas emissions that had to take place for a product to be produced or for an activity to take place."

Simply, the term expresses the impact of activities and products like transportation, usage of household energy, and food. Reducing an individual carbon footprint depends on the discrete action one partakes. For example, a small decision like where you travel or how you travel has a significant impact on your carbon footprint.


Travel: One of the major factors contributing to CO2 emissions

According to Andrew Murphy, an aviation manager at Transport and Environment, "Flying is the cheapest and the quickest way to warm the planet". Therefore, one effective method to reduce our carbon footprint is to limit travel. Specifically, travel isn't always essential for completing tasks. Before booking a business flight, consider why you need to fly and whether a video call could serve as an adequate substitute. If not a video call, are there other digital alternatives that enable you to interact and achieve the same level of productivity?



Virtual meetings and remote collaboration are on the rise


The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically transformed our work and communication methods, leading to the widespread adoption of virtual meetings. Industries requiring close physical contact, such as healthcare, on-site services, outdoor production and maintenance, farming, construction, warehousing, and indoor production, have been particularly affected.

As a result, the shift toward remote work and virtual collaboration has significantly reduced business travel—with lasting benefits. We have all seen how attending virtual meetings can save travel time, eliminate logistical complications, and improve work-life balance. By reducing transportation, we also contribute to mitigating climate change.


How can XpertEye remote collaboration applications help you contribute?

XpertEye is used by different industries, from service technicians maintaining heavy equipment to surgeons remotely collaborating on heart surgery. Our remote collaboration platform makes business travel less necessary, reducing the company’s carbon footprint.


AMA's journey towards reduction of carbon footprint

Therefore, we performed our first carbon footprint assessment and AMA has been involved in a responsible purchasing program where we are increasing local purchases by 34%.

We have an internal committee creating an awareness campaign on soft mobility and carpooling, teleworking, and organizing different awareness activities like a clean-up challenge, waste management, etc.

These actions align with our raison d'être: Enhancing professional life while preserving the planet.

"We are proud to share the impact of our solutions in helping our users reduce their CO2 emissions yearly around the world and are committed to constantly developing innovative solutions and connecting people. "

Client's journey in reducing carbon footprint using XpertEye



Before the pandemic, Solvay Materials Italy used to host an on-site tour of their application development lab for their remotely located clients and colleagues. Imposed by travel restrictions, the team initiated XpertEye remote collaboration to organize the virtual tour of the lab, where everyone could walk through the step-by-step process, despite their distant physical locations. The point of view of the person wearing the smart glasses gave a much better user experience than moving around with a mobile phone.

Some of the results:

  • Hard savings around 30k€/year
  • 5t/year of c02 emissions savings

Wayne Farms

Wayne Farms

In the US poultry industry, Wayne Farms has been leveraging XpertEye for virtual audits and remote collaboration. Now, they troubleshoot breakdowns of specific equipment remotely, avoiding a service technician flying across the country. The issue can now be fixed in two hours, whereas the downtime could last up to 2 days.
Using smart glasses has now been completely integrated into their daily operations.
