Telecommuting could help fight climate change, according to a new report.
It’s something that might bring joy to many who fight their way to work every day. According to a new report, telecommuting – working from home via your computer – can be a factor in helping to combat climate change.
The report was sponsored by BT Conferencing and Danish company Giritech, and backed by the Trades Union Council, the Confederation of British Industry, as well as Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth. It concluded, perhaps unsurprisingly, that working from home could significantly reduce road traffic. But it also pointed out that for real green advantages to accrue, we’ll have to change the way we use technology.
