KPMG asks staff to use public transport

Firm offers all UK staff free Oyster card

As part of a new environmental scheme with
Transport for London, KPMG is offering its
10,300 people in the UK an
Oyster card to
encourage them to make more use of public transport.

The scheme is aimed at reducing the amounts of car travel by its staff and
partners and is part of a broad-ranging campaign to minimise levels of carbon
dioxide emissions.

KPMG’s initiative has been welcomed by both the Mayor of London, Ken
Livingstone, and Transport for London.

Dr
Ashley Steel
, a KPMG UK board member who has led the initiative, said: ’KPMG
people need to travel regularly between our 22 offices in the UK. If all London
based people switch just one taxi journey a week to using an Oyster card then
over 300 tonnes of CO2 emissions can be avoided over the year. By offering
Oyster cards to all our UK people then even the occasional business traveller
can take advantage of the benefits that Oyster cards bring while travelling in
London including helping to cut CO2 emissions.’
