Emissions from staff and councillor travel (grey fleet) account for approximately 3% of the City Council's total emissions. The grey fleet comprises the vehicles owned by employees and councillors that are used for business travel.
The implementation of The Way We Work programme in a post COVID-19 environment will be translated in the development of a Sustainable Travel Policy for Plymouth City Council staff and councillors.
The proposed actions for City Council staff and councillor travel for 2021 are:
2.4.1 - Implement a Sustainable Travel Policy for Plymouth City Council staff and councillors to instill behavioural change relating to business travel, commuting, parking and more sustainable modes of travel.
2.4.2 - Provide electric pool bicycles and training for use by staff and councillors to help reduce car travel.
