In order to implement a Sustainable Transport to Work Plan, it is essential to obtain data in order to make a series of strategies to improve worker mobility and, above all, to be committed to the environment.
Following the instructions of the Ministry for Energy Transition, IDAE (Institute for the Diversification of Energy Saving) and the Business Travel Plans of the ATM (Metropolitan Transport Authority) of Barcelona.
Our first step is to know the location of the workplace, the surrounding environment and its transport infrastructure (bike lanes, metro and bus stops).
But at Mobility By Cycling Friendly, we love that both male and female workers participate in our plan, thanks to the development of a mobility survey, to find out the following: distance commuted and the means of transport used.
Thanks to this survey period, we access an analysis of results to find out: the number of surveys and extrapolate the data (km commuted, routes, type of fuel).
We leave you a practical exercise so that you can learn about our work methodology:
For a company with 65 employees, with a total of 27 people participating, this is 41.5%. (We segregated the data by gender and age, number of journeys and working hours).
Let’s say that there are 218 working days in a year, of which, the winter shift is 152 and the summer shift is 66 days, we can learn about the “in-itinire” journeys, which correspond to commuting home – work center.
Therefore, if we view images 1 (winter working day) and image 2 (summer working day), we can see the following data to consider for our Sustainable Transportation to Work Plan: the kilometers commuted daily; the number of journeys, the total km per day and the annual total (both winter and summer).
Finally, we obtain the final result for each mode of transport, where in this case the most used means is the train followed by the private vehicle.
And then we come to the final part, which is the calculation of the emissions produced during in itinire mobility.
As a final conclusion to our emissions, we insist that private vehicles such as cars are the most polluting in our cities, while active mobility (on foot or by bicycle) makes us take care of the environment and, above all, to have both good mental and physical health.
But thanks to the data obtained, we will be able to carry out different actions for each type of mobility, looking at the well-being of the workers and also the companies, where the costs derived from mobility in itinire can be reduced.
