Queens Award for easitNETWORK
September 27, 2011
A small organisation which encourages staff at a Reading business park to use alternatives to their car to travel to work has been presented with a Queens Award for Enterprise.
Transport group easitNETWORK won the sustainable development trophy for its work helping companies adopt green travel initiatives.
The easitThames Valley Park initiative, in East Reading, was launched last November and now includes BG Group, ING Direct, Oracle Corporation and Vail Williams.
Staff can receive discount cards on public transport, take part in car share schemes, borrow bicycles and use shuttle buses into and out of work.
A team of just four staff work for easitNETWORK but the firm works with 50 businesses employing more than 180,000 staff across Berkshire, Surrey and Sussex.
Mel Mehmet, chief executive of easitNETWORK, said: “We are very proud to have received this award and would very much like to thank all our members for their continued efforts to promote sustainable transport initiatives in their places of work.”
