JBA launches new Cycle to Work initiative

Here at JBA, we’re committed to making the changes needed to reduce our resource use and cut our carbon footprint, with the ultimate aim of becoming a Net Zero business by 2030. That’s why we’re excited to announce the launch of a Cycle to Work initiative for staff in the UK and Ireland this week.

The Cycle to Work scheme is a government-backed initiative which allows bicycles, and related safety equipment such as helmets, lights and high visibility clothing, to be hired using a salary sacrifice arrangement and later purchased. This results in savings of between 25% and 39% for the participants, depending upon their tax status.

Since 2007 we have also offered an Environmental Reward Scheme, encouraging staff to use low emissions transport when commuting. We reward staff who travel to work using low carbon means – by foot, by bicycle, using public transport, in a car share scheme or using an electric vehicle.

We hope that by enabling staff to gain access to a new bicycle and cycling equipment through the Cycle to Work initiative, that more staff will be eligible to claim the Environmental Reward bonus for low emissions commuting.

Sustainable Business Travel

We’re already making progress towards our ambition of achieving Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, and sustainable travel is one of the initiatives that will help us reach our goal. The JBA Travel Hierarchy encourages staff to carefully consider the need to undertake business travel, whilst also promoting public transport and other low-carbon forms of transport over petrol/diesel car use.

We hope that by launching the new Cycle to Work initiative this week, it will also make it easier for more JBA-ers to choose and use low carbon modes of transport for commuting.
