“It’s fantastic to see the continued progress Mott MacDonald has made in reducing the environmental impact from their driving for work activities and we welcome them as a Driving for Better Business Champion. Better management of staff who drive has brought year-on-year reductions in the number of their employees driving for work, as well as the number of miles they drive. This, in turn, has led to a near halving of fuel use and a reduction in CO2 emissions of around 1,500 tons per year – improvements that support the work we do through our own environmental strategy, and are an example I hope many others will follow.
