Liftshare is delighted to announce that, for the second time, they have been awarded the Queens Award for Enterprise for, what the judges called
‘exceptional contributions to the environment’
The award recognises outstanding achievements of UK businesses. Categories for the award are sustainable development, innovation, international trade and promoting opportunity through social mobility.
The award marks the second time Liftshare has been recognised by the Queen’s Award. In the award’s 53rd year, Liftshare are one of fewer than 200 winners of the Sustainable Development category.
Noted by the judging panel was the environmental impact Liftshare had made by supporting clients and members in reducing carbon emissions.
Liftshare’s CEO, Ali Clabburn, said of the recognition:
Winning the award in 2008 was a huge honour, but to have won it again 11 years later is testament to the incredible work my team has done to help companies and individuals to travel more sustainably. We are constantly innovating to provide our clients with cutting edge technology, alongside proven behavioural change techniques to guarantee the schemes we implement are a success. Working with our base of over 700 clients to help them change and improve the way their staff travel is so satisfying, and their success really is our success. The bigger and better their schemes become, the larger our network grows.
To date, members have helped Liftshare to save:
141,000 tonnes of CEO
717.5 million miles.
Liftshare has a vision to save 1 billion road miles by March 2020. This is achievable by more and more people choosing to share their journeys rather than travelling alone.
Employers can have a huge impact on this by encouraging staff to share their car journeys to work. By doing so, both the employer and employee can benefit financially whilst having a positive environmental impact.
