The tenth edition of the sustainable initiative Low Car Diet started officially on the tenth of September. Over 2500 employees in several companies excepted the challenge to leave the car at home and to pick a more sustainable way of transport for a month. The organisations that are participating are Rijkswaterstaat, Gemeente Amsterdam, Arcadis, Strukton, Unilever, Stedin Groep, Provincie Flevoland, a.s.r. verzekeringen, Royal HaskoningDHV, Hogeschool Utrecht, Flight Forum, het UMC Groningen en het UMC Utrecht.
Last year the participants prevented 63,1 ton CO2. This year the goal will be a saving of 100 ton. The competition will take until the 10th of October 2019.
Will you join?
The objective of the Low Car Diet is to instil sustainable travel habits. Therefore, we would like to encourage you and your colleagues to travel by a different mode of transport during the competition. That’s how you will discover what your ideal travel behaviour is.

accepted the challenge to travel differently and experienced along with their employees that mobility can be cleaner, cheaper and healthier.
enthusiastically participated in the Low Car Diet and travelled as sustainable as possible for 30 days.
Participants drive approximately 40% fewer kilometres during the Low Car Diet. This results in fewer parking problems, lower costs, reduced CO2 emissions, and healthier employees.
Companies reduce their CO2 emissions by 40-50% on average by using cleaner and different modes of transport and by travelling less.
During the Low Car Diet, participants spend 20-30% less on travel due to lower fuel usage and fewer private car expense claims.
Vitality increases during the Low Car Diet due to cycling and walking more. Depending on the weather, participants are cycling twice as often as before.
We happily work together with (sustainable) suppliers, interested municipalities, government and organizations.
