Cycle Friendly Employers deliver carbon reduction and improve employee wellbeing.

Our certification is the European Standard by the European Cyclists Federation delivering Active Travel Cycling in the workplace for over a decade. The certified symbol demonstrates to employees, customers, visitors, and suppliers your commitment to cycling as a mode of transport, sport, and recreation. Being a Cycle Friendly Employer is a simple way to decrease transport emissions, reduce transport costs and improve employee wellbeing.

The Irish government has a commitment to:

  • A 51% reduction in our carbon emissions by 2030
  • Reach net zero by 2050

Walking and cycling can have improved physical and mental health benets which, considered in economic terms are even greater than the positive environmental impact.
