P3. Active Travel
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 11 May, 2015
Through your physical activity pledges you will be working with employees, customers/consumers and/or local communities. For each group (as applicable) please describe the specific activities or projects you have undertaken over the past year.
For example, employee incentive schemes to promote physical activity, awareness raising activities or improvements to facilites to promote active travel.
We operate a Cycle to Work Scheme, allowing employees to loan a bike or equipment to cycle primarily to and from work and to repay that loan in 12 monthly instalments via salary sacrifice. We provide shower and changing facilities at almost all our offices and bakery sites. We also offer employees loans to purchase public transport season tickets. Our 2015 strategy will look at ways to encourage more healthy ways to commute to work.
For example, supporting/sponsoring local physical activity programmes, promoting physical activity to customers through website campaigns or in-store materials.
For example, support for community-based physical activity programmes (such as funding, sponsorship or other promotion activity), working with local partners to engage communities is physical activity opportunities.
Please estimate the number of your employees who report they are regularly using active modes of travel and explain how you arrived at this estimate.
Estimate of the number of employees using these facilities.
We do not measure this.
Has the number of your employees using active modes of travel increased since last year? If unknown, please explain why:
Has the number participating increased?
The opportunity for employees to join the scheme this year has not yet been communicated however, the take up of our cycle to work scheme has increased year on year and it is anticipated that they will rise again.
If your active travel pledge activities have focused on customers or local communities, have you observed or measured any increases in active travel in these groups? If yes, please provide details and where you have been able to measure this please explain how you arrived at this estimate.
We would be interested to know if your pledge activity over the last year has delivered a measurable increase in participation in physical activity. If so, please describe and provide an estimate of the level of increase and how you measured this. There is a 2000-character limit when completing this section.
