Free Brake webinar supports businesses to boost environmental credentials

Brake has revealed dates for an essential webinar on designing and implementing sustainable travel plans.

This webinar aims to support businesses looking to improve their sustainability, thereby reducing costs and risk, by addressing a key factor in business sustainability: transport.

The webinar will provide information for designing travel plans which help to reduce the impact of vehicles on the environment, whilst ensuring company goals are met. Led by experts in the field, the webinar will also cover issues for consideration when implementing a plan, and evaluating a scheme. A case study will also be presented by a company that has successfully implemented such a plan.

The seminar will include presentations from academics and fleet professionals, including:

  • Sarah Clifford - Associate, Transport and Travel Research Ltd
  • Peter Thomson - Director of research, the Telework Association
  • Tom Norton - Internal environment management advisor, Environment Agency

The webinar will take place from 2-3.30pm BST on Wednesday 10 April 2013. You can find out more and book your place online at the Brake website.

Ellie Pearson, senior professional engagement officer at Brake, said: "It has never been more important for all kinds of business to address their environmental impact and build a reputation for sustainability. This crucial webinar gives companies the opportunity to learn from field leaders in travel sustainability how to improve environmental impact while protecting organisational performance, reducing costs and improving safety. I recommend this webinar to all organisations who have staff who drive for work."

Steve Coffin, marketing & operations director at MiX Telematics, said: “The combination of increased environmental regulation and tough economic conditions is putting significant pressure on fleet operators. This webinar offers managers an opportunity to discover ways to overcome these challenges by optimising fleet utilisation and reducing vehicle mileage. We’ve seen how the implementation of telematics solutions can lead to significant fuel savings, reduced carbon emissions and higher levels of safety on the road.”
