An upside of teleworking: Reducing your carbon footprint

In addition to helping stop the spread of COVID-19, another benefit of more people working from home is that we’re collectively reducing our region’s carbon footprint and saving money.

The average Central Indiana commuter drives 40.8 miles and spends 50.6 minutes to and from work every day.

So for just one day of telecommuting, the average commuter in our region saves $23 and improves air quality by reducing 32 pounds of pollution from the air we breathe.
