Implementing Employee Commuting Emissions Reporting
GHGi Commuting Takes the pain out implementing employee commuting emissions reporting. Collecting the basic information is also simplified but communicating the how’s and whys with your staff needs to be properly planned.
There are several things that you must address to ensure a smooth implementation of GHGi Commuting and acceptance of the process.
Explain the Need
Explain why the company needs to report these emissions. In some cases, it will be because your organisation’s customers require it as part of the sales or tender process. It might be required by a government contract as with PPN 06/21.
Your employees will be able to see what their emissions from commuting and homeworking really are. For many people this is really useful information. For the company it can help it to decide what can be put in place to support employees wishing to reduce their emissions. These could be things to support those who cycle to work, like workplace showers and secure cycle stores or workplace. Charging points for battery electric cars, perhaps at a discounted rate to encourage their take up. Charging points for electric cycles and scooters is another option.
Reassure your staff that the results will not be used to force them into changing their travel choices. Explain that you understand that for many people cars will be the only practical option.
Explain the Process
Describe how the data collection will work, what to expect and how to access the online support video. We can work through the details with you in advance. Even if not all of your staff have email addresses this can usually be accommodated in most cases.
