University Sustainability Includes Telecommuting

Universities are key economic forces in their communities (and sometimes in the world as a whole, depending on the institution's reach). As leaders in employing people and driving how work is done, they should totally embrace green policies, including encouraging telecommuting.

That's why it warms Stella's heart to read that Syracuse University has specifically included flexible work and telecommuting as part of their sustainability plans. Along with Zipcars and pre-tax bus passes, "Supervisors have been asked to encourage their employees, when appropriate, to consider flexible work schedules that cut down on commuting. Four-day weeks or telecommuting are among the options."
