Working with employees

There are no fixed rules for this, and the approach will vary between signatories, from direct engagement through to provision of information.

What are the requirements?

2017 Statement – minimum commitments

N/A – this is relevant to the 2019 Statement only.

2019 Statement – additional commitments

To proactively support your people to reduce their emissions.

  • This commitment addresses how you engage your employees to reduce their own (and/or household) emissions.
    • Engaging employees to help reduce your corporate emissions should be part of your emissions reduction plan but is not the focus of this commitment.
    • Note that employee commuting emissions are in scope for this and will support the reduction of both corporate and individual emissions.
  • The minimum requirement is to be doing something, but we expect signatories to develop their efforts in this area, focusing on where they can have the most impact.

CLC Recommendations

There are no fixed rules for this, and the approach will vary between signatories, from direct engagement through to provision of information. Some examples seen from our signatories are:

  • Enabling home-based or flexible working patterns.
  • Incentives and support to commute by public transport, active transport, or carpooling options.
  • Availability of personal/household carbon footprint tool and/or FutureFit.
  • Information on ways to reduce and/or offset emissions.
  • Providing facilities to encourage active transport.
  • Financial support to transition to lower carbon transport (e.g. bike/e-bike subsidy, public transport subsidy etc).
  • Safe and Fuel Efficien Driving (SAFED) training.
  • Corporate participation in active transport initiatives (e.g. bike to work, steptember).
  • Supporting employee-led initiatives.
