Newcastle University - Home work not green

九月 30, 2010

Working from home damages the environment, it has been claimed. Researchers from Newcastle University observed people's working and shopping habits, and found that working from home or shopping on the internet could be increasing carbon emissions. People who shop online must order more than 25 items otherwise the impact on the environment is worse than from traditional shopping. Working from home can increase overall energy use by 30 per cent, and can lead to people moving further from the workplace, which can increase pollution when they do need to travel to their workplace.
