Flying often seems like the quickest and most logical way to travel – but what if we had more time?
That’s the question posed by British eco-charity Possible, whose Climate Perks initiative aims to get UK companies rewarding employees for greener behaviour – namely, ditching the flights and travelling in a slower, greener way. The scheme encourages businesses to offer their staff paid leave to cover the longer journeys that going flight-free can demand, incentivising people to travel instead by train, boat or coach.
