Survey on staff commuting

Staff are invited to complete a short survey on their daily travel to and from Imperial. The data gathered will help the College ascertain how successful current travel initiatives are and help formulate sustainable initiatives for the future.  In particular, this year’s survey includes a section on a proposed new bike scheme, with feedback sought on potential take-up. The information will also inform the College’s report to HEFCE on its travel-associated carbon emissions when this becomes part of the Estates Management Statistics survey from August 2013.

The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete and participants will be entered into a draw to win a £100 Amazon voucher. Results of the survey will be published on the Sustainability website.

    Once upon a time I was the Energy and Environmental Manager for Imperial College and I undertook a similar exercise on staff commuting. Part of the work involved plotting a map showing the home addresses of staff who had parking spaces allocated to them. The results showed some surprisingly short distances between home and the College and interestingly (but not in every case) the more important the person the closer their home was!?

    At that time (2005-6) the Estates Dept. was not particularly ‘Green’ and the plug was pulled on the exercise and I was ‘encouraged’ to focus on other things.

    I hope you get a good response and a strategy can be developed to reduce the environmental impact of commuting.

    Good luck!
