Cycling Solutions Ireland is proud to partner with ActiveScore, the world’s leading active travel assessment system for buildings. ActiveScore assesses new and existing buildings across three indices: physical infrastructure, employer engagement and future-proofing. Drawing on expertise from urban planners and experts from both the cycling and active travel industries, ActiveScore certification is the gold standard for future-proofed active travel standards.

Buildings and portfolios that achieve ActiveScore certification must demonstrate their commitment to all three assessment areas. The model is applicable to commercial, retail, mixed-use and residential developments and is suitable for one-off builds as well as large-scale projects such as business parks and eco villages. Core benefits of the certification include increased attractiveness to existing and prospective tenants, external validation of sustainability and ESG strategies, and improved health and well-being for tenants.

After certification, the team at ActiveScore works closely with building owners and facilities teams to implement continuous development strategies to ensure certified buildings remain at the forefront of active travel best practice.

Cycling Solutions Ireland is ActiveScore’s only Irish partner.

“ActiveScore are delighted to have partnered with Cycling Solutions Ireland,” said James Nash, co-founder of ActiveScore. “Cycling Solutions Ireland’s experience in active travel makes them the ideal partner for ActiveScore and we’re looking forward to working with them to raise the standards of active travel facilities in buildings across Ireland.”

“Employers and employees have higher expectations than ever when it comes to their workplaces,” said Michael O’Boyle, CEO of Cycling Solutions Ireland. “Partnering with ActiveScore means that we can work with landlords and facility management services to provide active travel certification and best practice. This in turn means that employers can provide the best active travel experience for their teams, thereby encouraging more employees to choose active travel methods for their commute, whether that by bike, on an e-scooter or on foot. The team at ActiveScore have developed a comprehensive assessment scheme that we are proud to be associated with.”
