Green Accreditation for Modeshift STARS

Green Accreditation - STARS Survey

Modeshift STARS is a national accreditation awarded to businesses and organisations that go above and beyond in developing, implementing, and monitoring an Effective Travel Strategy. This should change travel behaviour and reduce the number of single occupancy vehicle journeys to and from sites. 

Modeshift is an online travel strategy toolkit, providing comprehensive tools that assist in:

  • Creating a travel strategy
  • Monitor & evaluate strategy
  • Recognising and rewarding best practice

We are pleased to announce that The Open University has been accredited the Green Business Accreditation for completing the following:

  • 1 target – for example, increasing facilities for cycler users, including lockers, charging facilities for e-bikes.
  • 5 travel initiatives – for example, promoting cycling between sites with Cyclescheme and events, providing secure bike shelters with CCTV, providing a Cycle to Work Scheme.
  • 2 supporting initiatives – for example, updating the Travel Advice noticeboard and improving communication on Travel Advice activities provided to OU staff.

We are currently working to gain the Bronze Accreditation. This will demonstrate the OU are actively promoting sustainable travel.
