Sun, employees save big with Open Work

In an age of high gas prices and global warming, businesses are trying to figure out how their employees can spend less time on the road and more time telecommuting. Sun Microsystems believes they've hit upon the answer with their 10-year-old Open Work platform. In this video, correspondent Sumi Das meets Dave Douglas, vice president of eco-responsibility, and finds out how the project operates and why it's been a success. According to Douglas, Open Work has had a strong financial and environmental impact, saving 68 million in real estate and energy costs and cutting carbon emissions by 29,000 tons in 2007.
