Ecosurety has been shortlisted for the success of the CSR project joinmyjourney.
These prestigious awards shine a light on Bristol-based businesses, sharing success and celebrating new talent. The ‘Contribution to the community’ award recognises organisations that have demonstrated responsible business practices in the local community, the environment, with their employees and supply chain.
The free-to-use joinmyjourney website and mobile apps promote and facilitate journey sharing by car, bicycle and on foot for commuters travelling to the same organisation or business location. It is aimed at cutting congestion and emissions, and therefore contributes towards the UK’s target of 80% lower carbon emissions from 1990 levels, by 2050.
joinmyjourney was initially conceived to help reduce congestion, parking problems and the environmental impact of commuters traveling to the Aztec West business park in North Bristol where Ecosurety is based, also home to around 100 companies and 8,000 employees.
With support and funding from South Gloucestershire Council and expertise from North Bristol SusCom, the joinmyjourney website launched in November 2015 and is completely free for all Aztec West based employees to use.
A continuing commitment
Ecosurety is committed to roll out joinmyjourney to a number of businesses in the West of England completely free of charge, thanks to LSTF funding, with others being able to sign up for significantly reduced rates. It is already available to over 50,000 commuters at a number of organisations including the University of the West of England, North Bristol NHS Trust and Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
The award winners will be revealed at a black tie ceremony taking place on 29 June at Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol. More information about The Bristol Post Business Awards can be found here.
