It's time to Commute Back Better
Commuting emissions account for 18 billion kg of CO2e every year, which is 5% of all emissions in the UK. Your organisation has a dedicated lift share service that allows you to easily connect with colleagues and share your journey – and you can even access it on your phone!
Filling empty seats on your commute is one of the easiest ways to reduce your CO2e. We’re celebrating sustainable commuting with a whole month of events, rewards and prizes for sharers who make matches, share journeys and #CommuteBackBetter! On average, sharers save 1 tonne of CO2e per year – that’s the equivalent of a passenger on a return flight from Paris to New York!
What are the #CommuteBackBetter benefits?
Single occupancy car journeys are one of the worst emissions offenders. Travelling with colleagues reduces CO2e and mitigates the impact of climate change.
Sharing protects you pocket as well as the planet! Lift sharing is one of the cheapest ways to travel – with regular sharers saving an average of £1000 a year in travel costs.
Heavy congestion leads to high levels of localised pollution which is damaging to our respiratory health. By sharing a car, you are reducing emissions and supporting your local community.
Fewer cars, less traffic!
Sharing a lift reduces the number of cars on the road. Fewer cars mean less traffic - which allows for happier, stress-less commutes for all.
Meet new people
Sharing with colleagues from across your organisation provides an opportunity to expand your circle. Meet new people and make friends with likeminded sharers.
