Uttlesford District Council (UDC) has scooped a silver award from Essex County Council (ECC) for its ‘Green Travel Plan’.
Measures implemented by the authority include a new cycle shelter at the Saffron Walden offices, a car share, cycle schemes, and more fuel efficient replacement fleet vehicles.
“UDC continues to reduce carbon emissions across the organisation and recognises the importance in leading by example,” said Councillor Susan Barker, cabinet member for environmental services.
“Encouraging staff to walk or bike to work and minimise vehicle journeys will have a positive impact on health and the wider issues of traffic congestion and air quality in Saffron Walden.
“We will continue to implement green travel measures to reduce our emissions and impact on the environment,” she added.
