During 2020, our daily life changed radically. This year we have experienced an exponential increase in smart working and the use of tools to connect us increasingly more in a virtual and less physical way.
But there was also a revolution in the environmental impact of our “new” lifestyle.
In 2020 alone, as far as Europe is concerned, a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 7.6% was recorded.
The reasons are clearly linked to the change in both work and personal habits: the introduction of smart working, the reduction of business and tourist trips have led to a decrease in the use of means of transport and, consequently, to a slump in emissions.
Another positive environmental effect was the improvement in air quality.
The concentrations of NO2 and PM10, the elements that most worsen the quality of the air, as well as being harmful to health, have dropped significantly.
On the contrary, we have seen an increase in both individual and team performance, with a significant improvement in the quality of life of our collaborators.
Because if the environment wins, we all win.
