Provide Telecommute Options
Daily transportation and business activities make up a significant portion of our greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption, and air pollution and contribute to our fossil fuel reliance. One solution is to remove more cars from the road by offering employees a remote work option. The idea is that employees who telecommute drive less, consume less energy, and create less office-related waste.
This study found that telecommuting can reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the next 10 years by approximately 588.2 tons of which 247.7 million tons is due to less driving, 28.1 million tons is due to reduced office construction, and 312.4 million tons because of less energy usage by businesses.
BENEFITS OF TELECOMMUTING:
- Reduction of carbon emissions and air pollution.
- Energy, gasoline and fossil fuel usage is reduced.
- Decrease typical office waste, such as paper and plastic waste.
- Employer overhead and energy consumption is reduced.
