Sustainable transport

reduce reliance on fossil fuels

Thinking about your business travel and the way you and your team travel to and from work can have a significant impact on your carbon footprint. It can also generate cost savings. You should consider whether trips are necessary, the most efficient way to travel, and how you can offset any unavoidable travel.

If vehicles are part of your business, consider driver education, your servicing programme, the fuel efficiency, and whether electric vehicles are an option for you now or in the future.

The NZ Transport Agency has developed a range of guidelines and resources to make business trips and work travel more efficient.
