New Study Quantifies Work-from-Home Savings for Earth Day

Analysis of published research, released today, offers hope for Earth Day. The study shows that while less than 4% of the U.S. workforce currently work from home, 40% have jobs that would allow them to telecommute. According to the study, new teleworkers could annually save 625 million barrels of oil, reduce greenhouse gas pollution by 107 million tons of CO2, and save almost $43 billion at the pumps. Each worker would save 26 work-days and over $800, time and money wasted commuting. - April 21, 2008
