The article reports on the efforts made by E.ON to revise its reputation as Britain's largest emitter of carbon dioxide gases. According to Human Resources (HR) Director Jerry Sandström, E.ON is changing its ways, not just to survive, but to become an employer of choice. To reduce emissions from all business travel, employees can work from home for part of the week if operations allow. Travel between sites for business meetings is discouraged, with video, web and telephone conferencing facilities set up to provide alternatives.
