P3. Active Travel
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 22 April, 2015
Through your physical activity pledges you will be working with employees, customers/consumers and/or local communities. For each group (as applicable) please describe the specific activities or projects you have undertaken over the past year.
For example, employee incentive schemes to promote physical activity, awareness raising activities or improvements to facilites to promote active travel.
FDF continues to encourage staff to cycle and walk to work where possible. Our Footsteps Challenge, which is a staff competition with prizes based on the total distance walked, continues to be a success. In one challenge last year, 1 in 4 staff took part and between them, in 4 weeks walked 700miles; more than walking from Landu2019s End to John Ou2019Groats. We have a further 2 Footsteps challenges planned for this year..
The Cycle to Work scheme is available to all staff after completion of probation and FDF has a designated bicycle storage area and staff shower facilities on site.
For example, supporting/sponsoring local physical activity programmes, promoting physical activity to customers through website campaigns or in-store materials.
For example, support for community-based physical activity programmes (such as funding, sponsorship or other promotion activity), working with local partners to engage communities is physical activity opportunities.
Please estimate the number of your employees who report they are regularly using active modes of travel and explain how you arrived at this estimate.
Has the number of your employees using active modes of travel increased since last year? If unknown, please explain why:
If your active travel pledge activities have focused on customers or local communities, have you observed or measured any increases in active travel in these groups? If yes, please provide details and where you have been able to measure this please explain how you arrived at this estimate.
We would be interested to know if your pledge activity over the last year has delivered a measurable increase in participation in physical activity. If so, please describe and provide an estimate of the level of increase and how you measured this. There is a 2000-character limit when completing this section.
