ClearPeople Operations Director Barry Wakelin published these tips on our company intranet for saving money and energy when working from home – and reducing your home office carbon footprint into the bargain. We thought they were good enough to share.
ClearPeople is a completely virtual company. We all work from home, which provides us with work/life balance and reduces our carbon footprint by removing the need to travel to an office every day.
These are fantastic benefits, but it also means that we are now individually responsible for our environmental impact - we are now in charge of reducing our carbon footprint in and outside of working hours; we’re now Chief Procurement Office and Energy Efficiency Monitor.
Our carbon footprint as a business has been dispersed to individual homes. And with the cost of energy being one of the biggest contributors to rapidly rising inflation in the UK, and our impact on the planet in stark focus, now's a good time to review our personal behaviour, consider energy choices and find ways to save money and benefit the planet.
