The largest business-based contributor to carbon emissions is the service industry which generates 10s to 100s of thousands of truck rolls per year. As stated in Telephonyonline.com's May 2009 series article on Green Telecom, "If a large wireless provider with a fleet of 1000 trucks was able to eliminate three truck rolls a week, that would represent a savings of 3.3 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions." This industry, and untold others, in efforts to work hard to serve customers, dispatch multiple trucks carrying multiple technicians to perform multiple services at multiple sites. This process burns millions of gallons of fuel and pumps out billions of pounds of emissions.
