Automation is a divisive subject – while automated technology should help make our lives easier and more comfortable, there’s a very real threat it will lead to millions of jobs.

Earlier this year, a report from PwC, the UK-based multinational professional services network, estimated that up to 30% of jobs could be lost to automation over the next decade, while the Bank of England has put a figure of 15 million on the expected number of jobs that could be taken over by machines.

A report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has found that global warming is a more pressing problem than previously thought – while nations across the planet are working to keep warming down to no more than 2°C, we all need to be working to a 1.5°C limit.

So, we all need to do our bit to help reduce carbon emissions, and remote working is a great place to start.
