Travel and transport are essential to our business, from getting people to and from work, to the delivery of plant and equipment to construction sites. Employees often travel long distances, with many locations having poor public transport links. This leads to high levels of car use, and long hours spent on the road. More sustainable transport can help improve the health and well-being of our staff and is a key part of reducing emissions.
We have worked with the Energy Saving Trust on several occasions (2009/10, 2015/16 and 2019/20) to assess our approach and progress in improving sustainable transport. This provides an important check to ensure we are continuously improving.
