With targets set to monitor and reduce carbon footprint, sites should seek green travel plans wherever possible.
The use of public transport, car sharing or cycling to work schemes, all benefit the environment by reducing fuel consumption.
Walking and cycling are the best means of travel to and from the site, however, this is not always possible for longer journeys.
Encouraging car sharing or forms of transport that can carry a larger number of workers, will help to reduce road journeys, emissions and congestion on the roads around site.
Water transport can also be used for deliveries and the movement of waste.
Below are examples of how sites have used water transport to reduce the carbon footprint:
