Try a workplace travel challenge | Support your employees

If you're a business based in the South West and would like to support your employees to embrace greener travel choices, then a workplace travel challenge could be the answer.

Walking, cycling and running to work are excellent ways to improve your fitness and help reduce your company's carbon footprint. Businesses can now support their employees to make positive travel choices, helping them to save money on travel costs and cut their commute emissions.

To help kickstart new behaviours, a workplace travel challenge is a great tool. This online competition encourages participants log their sustainable and active journeys to work. Employees compete to clock up as many walking, cycling, running, car sharing, and public transport journeys as possible. 

It's a fantastic way to support healthier travel habits, and have some fun along the way! Competitions can be inter-departmental, with other organisations, or within a team. 

The benefits include healthier employees who've saved money on travel expenses and a reduced carbon footprint for the organisation - plus, it's freeeeee! 


You can arrange your own active travel challenge with support from resources like Cycling Works, Sustrans and Travel West.
