As an employer, you must support your employees, even when they are working from home. This includes help on how to work in a green and sustainable way.

Working with Climate Action for Associations

We are working with the team at Climate Action for Associations (CAFA) to provide small businesses with practical guidance, steps and checklists to support your low carbon journey. CAFA are dedicated to accelerating business and industry climate action. CAFA provide resources, tools, guidance and peer to peer learning to drive greater, and quicker, climate action across whole systems, industries and supply chains.
This Sustainable Working from Home Policy Template is one of many straight-talking small business resources prepared by CAFA that we will be sharing to help you implement climate action in your business.

Working from home can provide many sustainability benefits. Remote employees usually create a smaller carbon footprint by reducing or removing their commute.

As a small business you can still minimise your impact on the environment, even while your employees are working from home. Advantages can also include increased efficiencies, cost savings, and improved employee wellbeing and satisfaction.

The Policy includes a list of expectations you can set as an employer with your team, as part of their employment contract.
