CHICAGO, January 3 /PRNewswire/ --

- Global conferencing leader aligns with Sustainable Development International and United Nations Environment Program for worldwide communications initiative

InterCall, the world's largest conferencing provider, is now a Platinum sponsor of Climate Action, a joint development of Sustainable Development International and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) promoting environmentally-responsible business.

Through an upcoming book, Web site, and marketing program, InterCall and Climate Action will educate businesses, governments and non-profits on what they can do to reduce their carbon footprint and reduce their impact on climate change. Other environmentally friendly best practices, new technologies and practical initiatives to help companies and governments create a more sustainable business will also be shared in the publication. Features authored by government entities, intergovernmental organisations, the public and the private sector will raise awareness of the latest market trends, environmental threats and opportunities in response to climate change.

"InterCall is proud to support an organisation that will be a powerful agent for change in the Green movement," said Carolyn Campbell, Senior Director of Marketing for InterCall. "While InterCall has already launched its own environmental-awareness initiative,, through the power of this partnership we will have a much stronger voice in helping businesses realize the carbon savings they can achieve through conferencing and collaboration services."

Climate Action brings together six influential organisations concerned with the successful mitigation of climate change: UNEP, Ceres and its Investor Network on Climate Risk, The Carbon Trust, FTSE4Good and the Pew Center on Global Climate Change.
