Transport isn't just about getting from A to B
It's an essential part of business
Our goal is to empower you and your workforce to make smarter travel choices. Sustainable and active travel have a positive impact on both our environment and our physical and mental health.
It is also a key element of establishing a modern, environmentally conscious workplace culture. Encouraging sustainable and active travel will not only benefit your employees, it will benefit your business.
Three easy steps to unlock the benefits of smarter travel
Our travel audit is the first step in making your business an industry leader in green and sustainable travel. The audit gives you an idea of how well your business currently supports sustainable and active travel and provides a clear direction on areas to improve.
Find out exactly how your staff currently travel and what is preventing them from making smarter travel choices. This will help you provide the most appropriate support in choosing more sustainable and active alternatives.
Use information from the audit and survey, as well as the resources on this website, to develop an effective travel plan for your organisation. This plan will be the foundation for unlocking the benefits of sustainable and active travel in your workplace.
The most popular options for
Greener alternative travel
Walking (or running!) to work is a great way to counterbalance the sedentary effects of an office environment. Not only is walking a great form of low-impact exercise, it also has mental-health benefits.
Healthier staff can contribute to reduced absenteeism, improved productivity and better job satisfaction. Our walking toolkits can help your team make the switch to walking to work or integrate walking into their working days.
On your bike!
Cycling is a great way to travel, promoting an active lifestyle and a low carbon-footprint. Studies have shown that people who cycle, even for part of their journey, receive considerable health benefits compared to those who travel seated, such as in a car.
Our cycling toolkits provide all the information you need to transform your organisation into a cycle friendly workplace and encourage your employees to take up cycling.
Using the bus or train
Encourage your colleagues to consider public transport. Even using public transport for part of their journey can contribute to a more carbon-efficient way of travel compared to driving. Often staff aren’t aware of public transport options for their commute, so promoting alternative options in your workplace can help to make different travel choices.
Our toolkits will help you promote public transport and direct your colleagues to the relevant support to find the best public-transport solution for their journey in Devon.
Smarter travel by car
Sometimes there is no option other than a car, especially in a rural area such as Devon. However, there are still ways in which we can make smarter travel choices when driving.
This toolkit will help you to encourage your workforce to drive in the most efficient way, in order to have less of an impact on the environment. Together, we can help to reduce congestion and increase air quality for everyone.
