I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to improve their climate literacy so as to understand the projected impacts from the expanding climate crisis and how to adapt their workplaces in the face of these impacts.

The pandemic has taught us that daily commutes for millions of office bound workers is completely unnecessary.

As carbon rationing will shortly become necessary, those that get ahead of this by making pandemic forced remote working permanent will face far less disruption. (See We are at a critical juncture)

What needs to happen for you to adopt permanent remote working for your teams?
