1 January, 2013
Submitted: 8 April, 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.
The Cycle to Work scheme continues to increase membership. Cycle to work is promoted with free cycle check clinics, incentives such as free breakfast on occasions through the year, route advice and cycle buddies. Sites have secure bike storage, lockers and towels are provided, and there are showers available. In some buildings cyclists have access to a drying room.
Many BP sites have walking and running clubs, which typically meet at lunchtime, and take advantage of routes around the site for walking or running. National iniatives are often supported by individual sites, such as the "walk to work week".
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.
There are internally run and managed bicycle, walking and running clubs which have a core of commited memebers alongside a larger number of people who participate in the summer.
Has the number of your employees using active modes of travel increased since last year? If unknown, please explain why:
Yes, this can be measures through the Bicycle User group.
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.
