This principle is about reducing the need to travel, encouraging walking, cycling and low carbon transport.

For example: walking and cycling, public transport, low carbon vehicles, car sharing, car parking, charging points, green transport plans, employee commuting, business travel, visitors

One Planet Goals for travel and transport
  • Reduce car dependence and the need for daily travel
  • Make it easy and attractive for people to walk and cycle
  • Promote car-sharing and public transport
  • Promote low / zero-carbon vehicles including electric cars
  • Raise awareness of the impacts of, and promote alternatives to, air travel
