Embracing Sustainable and Active Travel: 3 in 4 of Our Commutes Go the Extra Mile

Updated: Jun 13, 2023

According to our most recent data, an impressive 70% of our commutes are now recorded as active, meaning that 3 out of 4 of our journeys are made through active means.


The Power of Active Commuting:

Active commuting is not limited to cycling or walking long distances. It encompasses various forms of transportation that reduce reliance on single-occupancy vehicles. By choosing alternatives such as biking, walking, or utilising public transport, we have unlocked a multitude of benefits for ourselves and our surroundings.


Improved Physical and Mental Health:

Numerous studies have highlighted the positive impact of active commuting on overall well-being. Engaging in physical activity during your commute not only promotes cardiovascular health and weight management but also boosts mental clarity and reduces stress levels.


Strengthening Our Community:

Active commuting fosters a sense of community and connection among individuals. As we share the roads and public spaces, we engage with fellow commuters, promoting social interactions and a stronger sense of belonging.


Empowered Employees:

Our commitment to active commuting has inspired our team members to take charge of their daily transportation choices. By providing support and encouragement, we have empowered our employees to make healthier and more sustainable commuting choices.


Environmental Sustainability:

Traditional commuting methods heavily reliant on single-occupancy vehicles contribute significantly to pollution and carbon emissions. By prioritising active transportation, we actively reduce our carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner and greener environment.


Looking Ahead:

While celebrating this significant milestone, we are not complacent. We acknowledge the challenges ahead, but we have never been more determined to keep promoting sustainable and active travel within our organisation. Our goal is to enhance our active transport policy by introducing new initiatives that will inspire our staff to lead by example, encourage others, and foster a supportive environment. By making active transportation an integral part of our daily lives, we will reap the rewards of happier, healthier, and more sustainable commutes.
