Mott MacDonald: new Driving for Better Business Champion.

27 November 2019

Global engineering and development company Mott MacDonald is the latest Driving for Better Business Champion .

They have achieved the following:

  • Total business mileage reduced by 45%
  • Number of employees required to drive down 35%
  • Number of employees required to drive >20k miles down 92%
  • Fuel use down 50% (equating to an annual saving of c£140,000)
  • CO2 reduction of 1500 tonnes per year over 2013 baseline

Jim O'Sullivan, Chief Executive, Highways England said:

“It’s fantastic to see the continued progress Mott MacDonald has made in reducing the environmental impact from their driving for work activities and we welcome them as a Driving for Better Business Champion. Better management of staff who drive has brought year-on-year reductions in the number of their employees driving for work, as well as the number of miles they drive. This, in turn, has led to a near halving of fuel use and a reduction in CO2 emissions of around 1,500 tons per year – improvements that support the work we do through our own environmental strategy, and are an example I hope many others will follow.”
