Finnish govt says teleworking will cause 'moderate' cut in CO2 emissions from transport by 2030 of 125,000 tonnes

Tuesday 21 September 2021 | 12:23 CET | News
The Finnish Ministry for Transport and Communications said a new study shows that the effect of telecommuting on greenhouse gas emissions from transport is only "moderate". Teleworking could cut annual carbon dioxide emissions by up to 0.125 megatonnes, or 125,000 tonnes, by 2030, it said. In the longer term, lower emissions from the car stock will reduce the impact of teleworking.
