Business Green Week: Day four - travelling sustainably to work

Today we continue our participation in Business Green Week with a focus on reducing our environmental impact on our way to and from the office.

See our previous blogs from Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday here! The theme for today of ‘Better Travel’ encourages employees to commute to work in a sustainable way.

We’re no novices to the task of encouraging our team members to think twice about their mode of commute. Last August we challenged our co-workers to travel sustainably for the month and filmed a clip from each day of the journey. We pushed the limits with various modes of transportation, including rollerblading, and had a lot of fun in the process. We’ve also launched a journey sharing website, joinmyjourney, which encourages users to share their commutes to various workplaces around Bristol.

A little thank you

Today we encouraged our staff to travel in a sustainable way; car share, cycle, walk, ride public transportation - the options are endless! What we didn’t tell them is that they would get rewarded for their sustainable commute. We had car-sharers, cyclists and walkers who all received some surprise tasty treats for choosing to reduce their environmental impact. We have some team members who travel sustainably every day and they were happy to receive a ‘thank you’ for their daily efforts.

Our Green Week is almost coming to a close and tomorrow we celebrate the last day with ‘Feel Good Friday’. Come back to read about the fun we had and what we learned throughout this week.
