Nice to Meet you

Fast growing interactive display company Avocor has been introducing its Google Meet Series One all-in-one video conferencing devices to potential customers in the US and Europe via a series of roadshows and tradeshows including ISE 2022 in Barcelona and InfoComm 2022 in Las Vegas. Developed in collaboration with Google Workspace to bring meeting equity to in-person and remote participants, the Series One Desk 27 combines the functions of a 27-inch desk monitor, laptop docking station and digital whiteboard, through integration of the popular Google Jamboard app, while the wall-mountable 65-inch Board 65 is designed to bring teams together for more efficient and intuitive collaboration. For mobility, sharing and the ability to set up spontaneous meetings anywhere, there is the option of a purpose-built stand. Both devices recently won Red Dot design awards, for design excellence and ‘Best of the Best’ respectively.

Live ESG scores

360 Law Group has launched a framework that enables any organisation to measure its ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) performance. Based on confidential questionnaires completed by employees, suppliers, customers and other stakeholders, the ESG Barometer scores an organisation’s performance and identifies areas of concern, updating both elements as survey responses are completed. Robert Taylor, CEO and General Counsel of 360 Law Group, said: “Sustainability is all too often an ambiguous or subjective term based on self-reporting. We have developed an accessible tool that delivers an effective and objective ESG framework against which organisations can be held accountable.” The first 20 surveys are free; prices for the next 20 start at £100 (ex VAT).

Clearly cleaner

Drytac, an international manufacturer of self adhesive materials for the print and signage markets, is hoping to generate demand for its antimicrobial clear surface protection film amongst consumers and small businesses by offering it in packs of A4 cut sheets on Amazon. Drytac claims that surfaces with SteriTac are 99.9% cleaner than unprotected surfaces, with protection lasting up to 15 years even with intensive cleaning.



Carbon neutral conferencing

Collaboration endpoint specialist Konftel has secured official Carbon Neutral status for the third year in a row by measuring 2021 greenhouse gas emissions, purchasing verified carbon credits to offset those emissions and by implementing plans to further reduce its carbon footprint in 2022 and beyond. To this end, it has made a commitment to halve the use of polythene bags in Konftel 800 conference phones and Konftel Cam20/ Cam50 cameras in 2022, to increase the renewable energy ratio at its main contract manufacturer’s facilities by 10% and to reduce car commuting by staff by 40% through hybrid working. Austin Whitman, CEO of Climate Neutral, said: “Konftel and our other Climate Neutral Certified brands are leading the global shift to a net-zero economy by doing what all companies should be doing immediately: measuring, offsetting, and reducing their carbon emissions. Our label helps consumers identify these brands.”
