Travel to work
Although the Company cannot dictate the way in which staff and tenants travel to work, it try to promote sustainable transport choices and make it as easy as possible for building users to avoid car use. The company provide facilities for non-car users such as cycle racks and showers in many of our centres and deliberately avoid generous provision of parking spaces. The Ethical Property Company also chooses to locate their Centres in areas that have good public transport connections.
As an indicator of the Company's success in promoting sustainable transport, it reports each year on the proportion of staff travelling to work by car and other modes of transport.
Of the 50 staff who responded to the travel survey, nine individuals used a car for all or part of their journey. Seven people used an unshared car. Others used a variety of modes of transport, as shown below.
NB staff may use more than one mode of transport to get to work, so the percentages of respondents add up to more than 100%
