Who would have thought that could you reduce your carbon footprint by working in your slippers? According to the Home 2025 project, homeworking could do just that.

Thanks to much faster, easily available internet connectivity and improved video conferencing software, working from home is possible for increasing numbers of employees around the world. In 2015, there were 1.3 billion mobile workers worldwide. The Home 2025 report suggests that in a decade’s time, homeworking millennials could account for 75% of the workplace.
In the UK between 2007 and 2012, working from home grew by 13%. While mobile working is gaining popularity for the convenience it offers UK employees, it could also shrink carbon emissions by over 3 million tonnes a year. Environmental benefits include lessening travel distances and fuel consumption for commuters, and reduced energy consumption for offices.
