Commuting accounts for around 2.5% of the UK's carbon emissions. Employees who work from home (telework) reduce the carbon impact of their commuting. And when it is well implemented and supported, most people like part-time telework and are more productive. But meaningful carbon savings only come when employees telework full-time or nearly so and have no permanent alternative office desk. Such high-intensity telework stresses managers, staff and organisations and requires more support and importantly training to underpin significant behaviour change.
