Green Travel - Starting a Green Initiative Successfully

Envision Green Travel Program was first developed in 2003 at the initiative of City of Darebin Victoria, Australia. The program was devised for encouraging employees adopting 'green modes' of travel i.e. walking, cycling, using public transport or car sharing. To do so, it used Recognition and Reward as tool. The program effectively brought together Council Employees under the green banner there were many rewards e.g. lesser need for car parking or chaos around council office during rush hours but most important, a change in employees behaviour as more understanding and productive.

Reward yourself - Green Travel for Workplaces

The data can be used for Carbon Neutral or Carbon Trading estimates.
