The article offers tips to reduce carbon emissions in the workplace. Human resource departments play a significant role in workforce behavior change and in the reduction of carbon footprint in business organizations. An employee self-service system can be integrated with any e-human resource plans implemented. Benchmarking strategies are intended to establish emission reduction plans. Utilization of renewable energy resources is also recommended.
