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.

Daily commute traffic between Pretoria and Johannesburg

Cars and vans accounted for 48% of global transport carbon emissions in 2022. This made this sub-sector the most emissions-laden mode of transport worldwide.

One third of the global workforce can do their work from home. If this group worked from home for 3 days per week 500,000 barrels of oil would not be burnt every day.

The emissions caused by the pictured commute, will last in the atmosphere for 300 to 1,000 years.

How can we, in good conscience, continue like this if alternatives exist?
