Today is Earth Day, an annual worldwide celebration inspiring individuals and organizations to demonstrate their commitment to environmental protection and sustainability. Crowe is committed to helping the environment and reducing our carbon footprint through practices like our Where to Work mobility strategy. We launched Where to Work to support the work/life needs of our people, but there are several added benefits for the environment. According to GlobalWorkforceAnalytics.com, if those with compatible jobs and a desire to work from home did so just half the time, these are some of the environmental savings we’ll realize in the U.S. from the decreased commuting:
- Reducing greenhouse gasses by 54 million tons.
- Reducing wear and tear on our highways by more than 119 billion miles
- Saving more than 640 million barrels of oil valued at more than $64 billion.
