Sustainability provides yet another reason to increase telework opportunities

In releasing new greenhouse gas reduction targets for federal agencies this week, the White House noted that some new ideas—including reducing emissions from employee travel and commuting, and expanding bicycle commuting—are being incorporated into each agency’s annual sustainability plan.

It seems that these sustainability goals go hand in glove with telework—whether from home or from telework centers.

Sustainability is emerging as yet another key reason—in addition to continuity of operations, national security and work-life balance—to make teleworking opportunities available whenever and wherever possible.
