Define commuting and business travel in a average day. • Networking and Research - Find like minded companies - access a wider audience and have a more complete body of knowledge. - Look at what other companies have done and steal with pride! Are there any problems, limitations in their plans? Can they be remedied in your method? - The internet - many papers and case studies can be accessed to help inform a plan. - Set realistic and achievable ambitious targets. - Collate reductions in costs, adapt for improvements. -NBTN has a large number of case studies, guidance and support to help. www.nbtn.org.uk. • Implement and support a plan - Incentivise: Create competitions/ league tables, Travel awards. Penalties for bad practice (careful) - Inform: Healthier options, saving money and time. - Adapt: What is needed to support these changes and make the transition easier. (cycling huts, showers etc.) - Review: Critically assess your plan, are there more improvements that could be made?
