Recode's Jason Del Rey did some digging.

    Is remote work better for the environment?

    Is remote work better for the environment?

    Working from home seems like it could be great for the climate. You don’t need to drive a car to work, and companies won’t need to heat and power large offices. But as Professor William O’Brien explains, the reality is much more complicated, and without proper planning, remote work may lead to greater emissions in the future.
