Ecosurety has been shortlisted in the ‘Best newcomer’ category for the development of the soon-to-be-launched joinmyjourney website and mobile apps.
The prestigious TravelWest Business Travel Awards 2015 recognise and celebrate the successes of businesses across the West of England that are making significant contributions to sustainable travel across the region.
Ecosurety has been shortlisted in the ‘Best newcomer’ category for the development of the soon-to-be-launched joinmyjourney website and mobile apps. The free-to-use portal will promote and facilitate journey sharing by car, bicycle and on foot for commuters travelling to the same organisation or business location.
joinmyjourney was initially conceived to help reduce congestion, parking problems and the environmental impact of commuters traveling to the Aztec West business park in North Bristol where Ecosurety is based, also home to around 100 companies and 8,000 employees.
With support and funding from South Gloucestershire Council and expertise from North Bristol SusCom, the joinmyjourney portal is due to launch at the end of November and will be free for all Aztec-based employees to use.
Also shortlisted for an award is Ben Luger, marketing communications specialist at Ecosurety, in the ‘Individual most committed’ category for driving joinmyjourney from concept and research through to development and launch.
Fed up with local traffic problems and the unsuitability of existing commercial car share schemes for the business park, with the support of Ecosurety Ben collaborated with South Gloucestershire Council and North Bristol SusCom to realise the bespoke solution. With the help of these partners it is anticipated that joinmyjourney will also be rolled out to other business locations in the region after launch.
The winners will be announced on 26 November at an award ceremony in Weston-Super-Mare. More information about TravelWest and the awards can be found here.
