Travel Choices - Accreditation


Accreditation has been shown to be an effective method to inspire, support and reward businesses who enable active and sustainable travel to and at work.

In March 2018 we celebrated the great work carried out by members of TfGM’s Business Travel Network, by hosting the second Travel Choices Accreditation Awards event.

It was a fitting commemoration of the progress made by companies across the region who have taken steps to reduce their impact on the environment by highlighting them as regional leaders in the field.

Active Travel Award

The Christie NHS Foundation have seen the use of sustainable travel for the daily commute increase by 9%, and to a point whereby nearly half of all employees travel to work sustainably.


Champion of champions award

The University of Manchester’s carbon emissions for commuter travel dropped by 35% in the last five years, cycling and walking increased by 7% and student public transport use reached 45%.

Sustainable Journeys are currently reviewing the accreditation awards scheme in conjunction with key stakeholders and businesses to ensure that it continues to meet these objectives effectively.

Business Travel Network members will be invited to submit application for the 2020 TfGM Sustainable Travel Awards early next year.
