An average UK employee could produce 28% less carbon emissions through remote working practices.

That’s according to research by Longevity Intelligence that considers a combination of ‘work from home’ and reduced travel would significantly reduce energy consumption across UK businesses.

The report states that office occupancy is expected to shrink by around 50% as businesses continue to keep staff working from home to ensure workers’ safety.

Richard Payne, Senior Consultant at Longevity Intelligence, said: “By optimising building energy load to match changing operational needs organisations can reduce costs and provide a clean environment for employees.

“The coronavirus impact will be financially deep but agile and net zero-focused businesses can take practical steps to reduce costs and create opportunities in the recovery.”
