Abstract

This paper describes the impact of the Portsmouth “Big Green Commuter Challenge” (BGCC) event, organized by Portsmouth City Council (PCC) in order to reduce carbon and nitrogen oxide emissions from transport within the city. In total, over 1000 people and 36 organizations took part in the 2011 event...
