Sustrans won the Sustainable Development part of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise and is the only 2002 Award winner with charitable status.
John Grimshaw MBE, Sustrans’ director and chief engineer:
“We are delighted to receive this award in recognition of the work we do, in partnership with others, to advance the opportunities for sustainable travel. A quarter of all car trips made are under two miles. The provision and promotion of routes that encourage more of these journeys to be made on foot or cycle, that is active travel, enhances the health of individuals, their communities and the environment.”
