Aintree was crowned 2018’s Sustainable Travel Champion by the Department of Transport (DOT) for their successful cycling and walking to work programme.
The scheme led by the Sustainability and Health and Wellbeing teams, has resulted in a significant uptake in the amount of staff ditching their cars for a more environmentally friendly method of travel.
The DOT recognised Aintree’s commitment to sustainable transport – work begun in 2007.
Years down the line, Aintree is now an example to many organisations and businesses in the Liverpool City Region.
Raquel Quinteiro, Sustainability and Energy Manager, pictured below, said: “Words cannot describe how happy our team is to receive this level of recognition. It’s taken a lot of hard work over the years to get to this point and we hope the scheme’s success can continue.”
