Barco has taken a significant next step in ClickShare’s path towards a full carbon-neutral offering for meeting collaboration. The ClickShare Bar has been granted the carbon-neutral label by  climate advisory organization CO2logic, a South Pole company and is the second ClickShare product to receive the carbon-neutral label, after the ClickShare Conference CX-50 2nd generation. With this recognition, Barco reinforces its commitment to design with sustainability in mind, as the ClickShare Bar is the first carbon-neutral video bar for wireless conferencing on the market. 

According to a recent survey by analyst firm Frost & Sullivan, 86% of IT managers indicate sustainability practices are crucial to achieve their business goals. ClickShare helps customers to equip meeting rooms with reliable technology and achieve sustainability goals at the same time.
