As part of our commitment to set sustainable examples through our actions, we have recently reviewed and updated our policy regarding business travel. The policy is adaptable to other organisations of a similar nature and location, and contains valuable research about “best practices” for travel within and outwith the UK.

The travel policy can be viewed in its entirety here.

Some tips when designing your own travel policy:

  • Think about the various aspects of your organisation – and remember to include travel to work
  • Consider your public transportation options, especially if you’re based in an urban location
  • Explore whether your current level of travel is necessary, and if there are more suitable alternatives: would a phone call achieve the same result?
  • Design your policy so that all employees can access and understand it relative to their own activities
