As Old Mutual Wealth has grown, it has considered its responsibilities in reducing its environmental impact has been considered. To show the business’s commitment to sustainability, the organisation used the ISO 14001 environmental management standard as a framework to form a policy to reduce its carbon footprint.
Old Mutual Wealth recruited the services of Liftshare as one element of this policy; a process to create change in employees travel behaviour. The business chose Liftshare based on its software which provides easy access to monitoring information and statistics. The system records the business’ environmental impact, and gives figures which contribute to the ISO 14001 accreditation. Old Mutual Wealth achieved the accreditation in 2014.
As well as meeting environmental objectives, the Liftshare scheme also helps reduce demand for parking at Old Mutual Wealth’s Southampton offices. The scheme enables employees to easily find colleagues travelling in the same direction as them and delivers substantial cost savings on commutes. Old Mutual Wealth has seen 10% of its workforce sign up to the Liftshare scheme.
