Home working and delivery
The most sustainable journey is the one that’s not made at all. New technology makes it easier to work from home remotely, giving you the potential to radically reduce the number of home to work journeys, which can quite often be done as single use car journeys.
To date over 85,000 homes and businesses have been provided access to a fibre broadband service, due to Wiltshire Council’s Wiltshire Online investment. To find out more please visit Wiltshire Online.
Remote working and home working offers employers and employees a greater level of flexibility, and can increase levels of productivity. They also offer cost savings, reduce the impact of transport on the environment, and can deliver collective health benefits through a reduction in CO2 emissions.
When it comes to shopping, most supermarkets these days offer home delivery, and can deliver at times that suit you. They tend to plan their deliveries to make as many stops as possible with one vehicle, which cuts down on the numbers of journeys people are making to the supermarket, thereby saving you time, and helping the environment.
