Staff at TCi have opted for greener transport to #BeatAirPollution for UN Environment World Environment Day.
By either cycling, walking or car-sharing, TCi employees have saved about 90 car miles today, representing approximately 200g carbon dioxide saved.
“Although it’s only a tiny amount today, it goes to show that the efforts of just a few people can make a difference, and multiplied across teams and businesses on a daily basis, there is scope to have a real impact.” Explained Fiona, Office Manager
Marketing Manager Ben Gibbs said; “it’s nice to leave the car at home and get out on the bike first thing in the morning. I’ve been able to reduce emissions and save about £3.50 in Diesel (although the savings might go on a pasty for lunch so I have the energy to cycle home again!)”
