Working from home has become a staple for many of us and it is likely that even as the impacts of COVID-19 subside, we will still require some degree of flexibility within our working environments.
We, at Compare Your Footprint, believe that to make truly impactful reductions in your organisation’s carbon footprint, it is important to take into consideration the full range of emissions. One such area you may find is significant is within the home working environment.
Want to start measuring your home emissions?
To help, we have created a methodology based on a series of questions that can be answered in less than 7 minutes. This questionnaire can be distributed amongst your colleagues to offer a glimpse into these home related emissions. The calculation apportions a certain percentage of the individual energy consumption and makes several educated assumptions based on the respondents replies. This can be averaged out and fed into the home office facility within your Compare Your Footprint account.
Research paper coming soon!
We will be launching new research to evidence our home emissions calculations, this will include case studies of Small-to-Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) who successfully added home office emissions to their organisation's carbon footprint using Compare Your Footprint.
