Following on from the British Chambers of Commerce’s (BCC) recently launched Annual Transport Survey, the BCC is now releasing its third instalment of five pamphlets on Sustainable Transport.

Having consulted key stakeholders and expertise found within an extensive business membership base, the BCC have helped to develop a number of alternative and sustainable options aimed at combating Britain’s failing transport network.

This particular instalment focuses on ‘Smarter Alternatives’, such as; arranging subsidised local transport incentives for employees, providing facilities that encourage walking and cycling to work, and investment in video and teleconferencing technology which would reduce the reliance on transportation.

Commenting on the ‘Smarter Alternatives’ being presented today, Gareth Elliott, Policy Adviser to the BCC, said:

“We believe that by implementing our smarter alternatives as standard practice, the Government, partner organisations and companies themselves could dramatically help to reduce congestion on the transport system. Moreover, it would illustrate a genuine commitment to the environment.”
