TfL is currently investigating different ways in which we could encourage green travel behaviour. This initial work is at a relatively high level looking at how public transport and walking and cycling might be incentivised through a green points or travel budget scheme. TfL is also considering whether such a scheme might link in with promoting other green behaviour, for example, the purchase of energy efficient light bulbs or installing home energy efficiency measures. The work is at a very early stage and it is too early to say whether these ideas will prove practicable.
