In 2022, working from home is common practice. We got used to Zoom meetings, information exchange through online portals and digital coffee breaks with colleagues. After more than two years since the start of the pandemic, it has become easier for employees and companies to deal with a hybrid to fully remote working environment.
Working from home does have advantages, and I am not referring only to wearing your pjs all day. The environment is also reaping the benefits, as millions of people stopped commuting everyday, we have seen reduction of carbon emissions and an improvement of the air quality. Data from Breathe London has shown that carbon emissions fell by 25% in the morning and 34% in the evening with reduction of the daily commuters.
However, as the energy to power our home offices is still creating emissions, we can add sustainable practices to our working-from-home routine that can help us further reduce our impact and cut our bills too.
