Moving Towards Sustainable Movement

 

The quarterly TLB Green Network Breakfast ‘Moving Towards Sustainable Movement’ took place on April 17th, providing a forum for lively debate between attendees. Speakers from Transport for London, Tideway, Steer Davies Gleave and Zedify provided food for thought on how strategies, large-scale programmes and smaller everyday business focused solutions are all crucial elements of reducing the impact of servicing and deliveries. 
 
Transport for London 

Transport for London’s freight team introduced the scale of the problem in London linked to population increase and poor air quality. One headline target is to reduce the number of morning peak deliveries in central London by 10% by 2026. Given this number is currently on the rise, it's going to take concerted efforts from businesses to turn the corner. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Tideway 

 London Bridge-based company Tideway, is already a quarter way through building a new super-sewer in the Thames – a 7.2m-wide pipe which is wider than a tube line. The project is committed to using the river to transport the majority of its cargo, which will save an estimated 280,000 vehicle journeys in London. It will demonstrate how the Thames can once again be a working river. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Steer Davies Gleave 

 
Steer Davies Gleave went on to present results from working with a group of large London Bridge workplaces through the freight forum. The results are providing cleaner ways of receiving personal deliveries (www.clickcollect.london), removing peak-hour deliveries, and consolidation of suppliers – for example, by new retail outlets in the station.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Zedify

 
Finally, Zedify showed how cycling is providing a solution to business deliveries, now working in the City, Waltham Forest and Cambridge. Vehicles are closed and secure, and the service tends to be quicker than motor-vehicles, competitive in price, pays the Living Wage – all with zero emissions.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We look forward to seeing you at the next Green Network Event on Wednesday 18 July (venue and topic TBC - if you have a topic you'd like us to discuss, please e-mail Jack at jack@teamlondonbridge.co.uk.)

The Green Network helps us achieve this by bringing together London Bridge businesses and partners to hear about best practice and harness local knowledge and interests in diverse areas of sustainability.

Team London Bridge is working with Better Bankside as part of the Low Emissions Neighbourhood, supported by the Mayor of London, aimed at reducing emissions on main roads and enhancing and promoting quieter routes through improved public realm
