Why this pledge is so important

Just leaving your car at home once a week is a step in the right direction for all of us!

2kg of C02 can be saved for every journey of under three miles by not using your car and walking or cycling has the added bonus of being good for your health and well-being.

66% of all journeys made in Britain are under 5 miles long and a three-mile commute will take about an hour on foot (providing you’re wearing comfy shoes!) and trips of 3-5 miles can be made in 20 – 30 minutes by bike.

Globally, transport accounts for 15% of all emissions, in the EU it is responsible for nearly 30% and transport is now the UK’s largest sectoral source of carbon emissions.

It is the only sector to have made no meaningful contribution to emission reduction to date.
