Energy Saving Trust launches Sustainable Travel Week

By / 8 months ago / Latest News / No Comments

Energy Saving Trust is running its Sustainable Travel Week from 7-11 September, providing insights on how individuals and businesses can travel greener and reduce their carbon footprint.

The EST will be promoting the ‘sustainable travel hierarchy’ this week

Over the coming days, the EST will share information and tips around the sustainable travel hierarchy. This positions walking and cycling at the top. A total of 68% of journeys that we take are less than five miles, with each mile of walking saving an estimated 276g of CO2.

And for longer distanced journeys, the EST is promoting the benefits of electric cars and vans.

Tim Anderson, head of transport at the Energy Saving Trust, said: “Our aim in sharing these choices and information of how to travel sustainably is to help people learn how their and their families’ choices really do make an impact on the world we all live in.

“Reducing CO2 emissions across all aspects of our lives does make a positive difference and help address the climate emergency we face.”
