The Dutch research institute TNO suggests that the country's businesses could save billions of euros

15 November 2008
THE NETHERLANDS – The results of a study by the TNO institute suggest that the country's businesses could save ten billion euros a year by making people stand at meetings.
It is estimated that business meetings in the Netherlands cost 30 billion euros a year. 

The TNO study showed the figure could be reduced to 20 billion if all participants had to stand. 

The financials savings would result from savings in time: the study demonstrated that meetings go faster when the participants stay on their feet.
