P3. Active Travel
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 7 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 run a 'cycle to work' scheme where employees can save up to 50 per cent on the cost of a new bike if they commit to using it for a minimum percentage of their annual commute. There are bike sheds available to enable employees to securely store their bikes and hi-viz vests are provided. There are clearly marked pathways around the site to enable employees to safely walk around and go for a longer walk at lunchtime. Finally, there is a shower facility at the brewery for employees who wish to use prior to work or at lunchtime.
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.
Approximately 10% of our workforce but not all daily as we are based in a built up area outside of the city centre. This estimate is based on an understanding of how many employees cycle to work.
Has the number of your employees using active modes of travel increased since last year? If unknown, please explain why:
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.
Not to our knowledge mainly due to our location.
