Tech company wants to end ’email pollution’ by 2013

How many work emails do you get a day? 80? 200? 500? More than 1,000?If you are one of the many people who feel overwhelmed by the daily deluge of unnecessary emails in your inbox, consider applying for a job at Atos. The French IT services company is hoping to become a zero email company by 2013.”We are producing data on a massive scale that is fast polluting our working environments and also encroaching on our personal lives,” said Thierry Breton, Atos’ chairman and chief executive, in a statement. “At Atos Origin we are taking action now to reverse this trend, just as organizations took measures to reduce environmental pollution after the industrial revolution.”Email pollution? That’s one way to look at it.
