The Challenge

Bioregional consider this to be the challenge we face globally in relation to Sustainable Transport;

  • local travel by car and airplane can cause climate change, air and noise pollution, and congestion

The Goals

Bioregional identify the following goals, set so we can all contribute to a common and ultimate goal;

  • to reduce car dependence and the need for daily travel
  • to make it easy and attractive for people to walk and cycle
  • to promote car-sharing (including car clubs) and public transport
  • to promote low / zero-carbon vehicles including electric cars
  • to raise awareness of the impacts of and promote alternatives to air travel

The Green Centre

Green Centre SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT actions

Local actions

  • We understand that active travel is preferable and so we focus on walking and cycling in an effort to reduce carbon emissions and pollution and promote public transport.
  • In 2015 we started working with Brighton & Hove Buses processing their lost property for resuse and recycling. This allowed us to learn about the development of their fleet of buses and zero emissions.
  • In 2017 we shared space with the Big Lemon and learnt about sustainable transport and the use of alternative fuels including biodiesel and solar.
  • In 2020, our co-founder Melanie Rees was part of the Brighton & Hove Climate Assembly which focused on transport.
  • In February 2021, supported by Brighton & Hove City Council, we were able to acquire a Nissan e-NV200. The charging infrastructure in the city is fuelled by 100% renewable energy provided by Good Energy.
  • In 2021 our volunteer team uses the following modes of transport to travel to and from the Green Centre;
    • Walking 
    • Cycling
    • Bus
    • Hybrid car
    • Electric van 

 
National actions

  • We have connected with Sustrans which raises awareness of transport initiatives which help reduce carbon emissions including car sharing.
