Future of Work - The impact of climate change

Remote Work will become part of our climate strategy

This post is part of a 9-article series on the future of work from Emma Wanderer's perspective. Packed with insights and statistics, we give you a glimpse into our view of how we humans will shape and lead our working lives in the future.

One aspect of remote work that has received little attention to date is its positive impact on the climate crisis. In an analysis commissioned by Greenpeace, the Berlin Institute for Future Studies and Technology Assessment came to the conclusion that an additional work day from home for all employees in Germany could save 1.6 million tons of CO2 emissions per year.

In Austria, the advancing nationwide expansion of broadband is supposed to reduce CO2 emissions by 7 million tons, even taking into account negative effects such as rising electricity consumption.

These indications show that remote work has a national and international climate policy component: Remote work will therefore be part of every country’s climate strategy.
