About this talk

Categorised as Scope 3 emissions, commuting accounts for 5% of the UK’s total missions - 18 billion kg of CO2e annually. Often overlooked, these emissions are increasingly under the spotlight following organisations setting ambitious net zero targets. These targets cannot be met unless commuting emissions are addressed, particularly with many employers planning their return to the office.

In the NHS alone, 4% of all emissions come from commuting - unsurprising with a workforce of 1.3m people, many of whom make the same daily commutes to hospitals, offices, health centres, and surgeries every day.

With ambitious plans to become the world’s first net-zero health care system, pioneering Trusts are embracing technology to tackle the commuter emissions challenge, while supporting their teams make healthier, greener travel choices and meet their net-zero goals.

The Mobilityways Platform is a suite of software tools that enables employers to evidence, track, plan and change their commuter emissions. The Platform is the only software solution dedicated to decarbonising the commute. It provides full visibility of commuting challenges and identifies sustainable travel alternatives for employees.

Key takeaways:

• Why Scope 3 commuting emissions matter

• How to measure and manage their impact on your organisation

• Setting effective targets in line with your net zero strategy

• Understanding the local mobility landscape

• Empowering individuals to make greener travel choices

• Sharing inspiring best-practice sustainability stories

The public sector employs 5.5 million people, with commutes generating billions of tonnes of CO2e. If these lessons can be applied across the public sector, we can make huge strides forward in the fight against climate change.
