Birmingham City Council continues to encourage workers to reduce reliance on cars and commute sustainably: by bicycle, foot or public transport.
Twelve more organisations in the city have recently gained accreditation through the Modeshift STARS scheme for encouraging their staff to take up more active modes of travel when commuting to work such as walking, cycling or using the bus, train or tram.
The most recent organisations to be recognised with Modeshift STARS accreditation are: Aston University, Atkins (new Birmingham office, Two Chamberlain Square), Birmingham City University, Birmingham Metropolitan College, Bryt Energy, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), Midlands Arts Centre, Newman University, Pell Frischmann, SCC Academy Birmingham, South and City College Birmingham, and the West Midlands Combined Authority.
In total, approximately 350 Birmingham based organisations, including schools, hospitals, universities and businesses are now registered on the Modeshift STARS scheme which provides the tools to create an effective Travel Plan and achieve nationally recognised accreditation.
