I think this article is interesting, but I’d like to learn if the study has been peer reviewed or contradicted by any other studies?
Commissioned by the Consumer Electronics Association, a July 2007 study conducted by TIAX called “The Energy and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Impact of Telecommuting and e-Commerce” does have contradictory findings (at least for telecommuting) from the article you cited:
All that being said, the CEA/TIAX study does not seem to figure in the “rebound effects” that the IET report focuses on. In this sense the IET report does take into account more nuances when it comes to telecommuting and e-commerce. To me this just goes to show that company policies should be designed with specific employees and customer trends in mind, using calculations to determine whether telecommute and online shopping procedures are in line with financial bottom lines as well as environmental concerns.
