The impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19) have resulted in significant changes to our daily lives; affecting family life, leisure time, the way we travel and the way we do business.

An estimated 47% of UK employees – 14 million people – were reported to be working from home in April 2020 and many have stayed remote or hybrid since. It is vital that corporates account for the shifting boundaries of their operational emissions.

This paper, written in partnership with Lloyds Banking Group and NatWest Group and with special contribution from Bulb, defines a simple and easy to use process for calculating emissions of a workforce increasingly based at their own homes. The version features minor amendments to calculations as the methodology progresses. 

It provides a working methodology to complement the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol for the following three areas:

  • Emissions from office equipment
  • Emissions from heating
  • Emissions from cooling (where geographically relevant)
