At Danone, active health is a core part of our day-to-day lives. Active travel is a part of this initiative, and we regularly encourage people to take advantage of our cycle2work scheme.We launched this scheme 4 years ago to encourage employees to cycle to work. It allows employees to purchase a bike and safety equipment through an initial 12 month hire agreement. We also provide a secure bike storage shed.We have recently submitted a permit application with Ealing council to install a shower in our office, and pending approval, this should be installed by March 2012.In the spring of 2012, we have plans to hold an inter-departmental competition to promote walking to work. We will give everyone pedometers, and over a period of a week, we will see which department can accumulate the most miles per head. We hope this will make our employees realise that walking to work could be an option that they may not have considered previously.
