Travel Choices - Accreditation

In March 2018 we celebrated the great work carried out by members of TfGM’s Business Travel Network, in promoting sustainable travel, 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.

The accreditation scheme awards businesses for their sustainable travel ambition by awarding them with either bronze, silver or gold standard.

2018 awards went to:


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. 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.

Two additional awards were awarded on the day to organisations who have gone above and beyond in their efforts to promote, and increase, sustainable travel.

The Christie NHS Foundation Trust received the Active Travel Award as they 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.

Meanwhile, The University of Manchester won the Champion of Champions Award after 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%.
