Sustainable and active travel have a positive impact on both our environment and the physical and mental well-being of your employees. Encouraging a shift in the way your colleagues travel will benefit your business in the following ways:

  • Enabling and encouraging sustainable and active travel to your site are key elements of establishing a modern workplace culture – essential for recruiting the best talent and ensuring staff retention.
  • A healthy workforce helps to ensure less sickness and higher productivity.
  • Green travel helps to reduce the cost of significant overheads such as car parking spaces and mileage.
  • Alternatives to car travel are often faster and more efficient during busy times of the day.
  • Sustainable and active travel are often more cost effective for both your employees and your business.
