This project considered whether or not businesses could effectively conduct meetings in a virtual reality environment as a substitute for business travel thereby reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Participants completed a questionnaire that asked how productive they regarded the meeting to be in terms of attentiveness, connection, and clarity of communication. The meeting types tested were virtual reality, face-to-face, and teleconferencing. The face-to-face meetings were regarded to be the most productive indicating that, at this point in time, technology is not yet able to replicate the traditional business meeting.
