Employers sign up to sustainable travel network in effort to reduce carbon footprint and costs

More than 100 companies have signed up to the government’s network of businesses dedicated to promoting sustainable travel.

The National Business Travel Network was created by the Department for Transport and promotes sustainable travel plans as a cost-effective way for businesses to tackle climate change.

The network forms a part of the cross-government climate change campaign Act On CO2.

Transport minister Jim Fitzpatrick said: “The campaign aims to give the public information on how to reduce their individual carbon emissions.

“The fact that 100 businesses have joined the National Business Travel Network shows that cutting emissions and sharing best practice is also a priority for UK Plc, which is enormously encouraging.

“Having green travel plans and cutting ‘vehicle miles’ is a way businesses can reduce their carbon footprint and save on costs – so it’s a win for the company, the consumer and the environment,” he added.

Members of the National Business Travel Network include business groups such as the CBI, British Chambers of Commerce and the Institute of Directors and and major FTSE 100 employers.
