As organizations seek to effectively address their environmental impacts, carbon footprint reduction has become a common practice. This white paper takes a closer look at reducing your organization’s carbon footprint and the many factors that come into play. Organizational emissions tied to employee commuting can represent a very large or a very small part of an organization’s overall carbon footprint, depending on a great number of factors. Factors may include facility location, organizational culture, and industry sector. However, the carbon emissions associated with employee commuting can represent a significant portion of the organization’s overall carbon footprint size. By reducing commuting related emissions, an organization can reduce its overall carbon footprint, sometimes dramatically.
This paper provides information on:
- Carbon footprint of commuting baseline
- Alternative transit modes
- Detailed carbon emissions reduction calculations
