Support for East Sussex Businesses to Reduce Travel Costs

Sustrans-Logo-for-featured-Sustrans, the national charity championing sustainable travel, has launched a new project to help small businesses based in East Sussex reduce the cost and environmental impact of business travel.

The Smarter Small Business Travel project offers a range of free* services delivered by a dedicated Sustrans travel advisor. The advisor can offer anything from advice or short courses to a tailored programme including a review of current travel habits, the development of a travel plan, staff engagement activities and monitoring and evaluation tools to review progress made.

What support is on offer?

ESCC-&-EU-LogosWho can take part and why is it free?

The project is open to independent East Sussex based businesses with fewer than 250 employees and a turnover less than £35 million. It is funded by the European Regional Development Fund and East Sussex County Council, who are keen to see small businesses improve their profitability and reduce their carbon footprint.

How do I get involved?
