The story becomes slightly stronger if you think of VoIP in the broader context of IP communications. Telepresence and videoconferencing are the best examples of this, where the voice component is basically a VoIP call. In these cases, the green angle has become a key selling point in the sense that these solutions reduce the need for travel. Less travel means less flying on airplanes, which translates into reduced carbon emissions and usage of fossil fuels. These benefits have more to do with the environment than IT, but by association can be positioned as one the virtues of VoIP.
