I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to design digital workplaces or “offices in the cloud.” These environments enable companies to allow flexible and remote working for their teams. I also teach the digital literacy, fluency, communication and collaboration skills needed to work in these modern technology-rich workplaces.

As the existential threat of climate change sinks in, which is beginning to happen in many parts of the world, governments will not hesitate to enact covid-like lockdown measures to radically reduce emissions to avert a global catastrophe.

It would be prudent for any business to plan for a world where decarbonization is legislated. (Eg. see moves in California to mandate remote work to reduce daily commute carbon emissions)

De-coupling your business from the need to burn fossil fuels to generate an income is likely the smartest move any business can make this decade.

How far are you down this path?
