ok this is difficult as i don't work there and know the set up but if you have meetings between different locations instead of travelling do conference calls or video calling instead of travelling to get together

Do you think you'd be allowed to install something similar to MSN Messenger?

We re-use scrap paper for internal faxes
Goole talk instead of long phone calls
And for internal letters we stick white labels over the old address
Small but adds up
