Home working – impact on air pollution and climate emissions

Talk

Friday 29 January 2021
08:30 - 09:30

Free

With the escalating need for action to reduce emissions, both carbon and air pollution, the majority of employees now working from home full-time poses a concern for many businesses:
  • How do they account for the increased emissions associated to working practices as a result of home-working even as their office emissions profile reduces? 
  • How do they meet CSR responsibilities by influencing the reduction of emissions from home-working?
 
A panel of representatives from across the Square Mile and other contributors will be exploring these questions.

City of London, City Air, Cheapside Business Alliance and Nomura have created a Working from Home Top Tips to reduce carbon emissions.. View them here
