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?

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.
