Travel smart and reduce your carbon footprint.

Nearly 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions result from transport. It would be unrealistic to expect people not to travel, but there are real ways that you can travel more efficiently!

Driving

Drive less

Choose a fuel-efficient car.

Check your tyre pressure - incorrect tyre pressure results in higher petrol/diesel usage.

Drive smoothly - your car burns the most fuel when you are accelerating. Avoid sharp braking and accelerating to save petrol.

Travelling

Avoid unnecessary flying - urge your business to invest in tele- and video-conferencing facilities.

Fly direct - most of the fuel used when flying is used during the take off. Fly direct to avoid extra "take-offs". Greenhouse gases which are released at high altitudes have an even greater impact on climate change.

Take holidays closer to home - it could be a lot cheaper and save you time.

Offset your flight emissions if air travel is unavoidable.
