Green travel policy targets emissions

March 2008
People Management;3/6/2008, Vol. 14 Issue 5, p15
The article reports on the plan of North Star Housing Group (NSHG) to launch a green travel policy that rewards staff based on the carbon emissions of their cars in April 2008. Under the policy, staff with cars emitting 150 grams (g) or less of carbon dioxide (CO2) will receive a lump sum annual payment, while those that emit more will have much smaller sums. Beverly Sherratt, head of human resources (HR) and corporate services at NSHG, clarifies that they did not said people must have low-emitting cars, however, they will reward organisational values.
