AF Bostäder is the most bicycle-friendly workplace in Lund 2020

October 27, 2020

We are proud and happy to have won Lund Municipality's competition for a bicycle-friendly workplace! AF Bostäder wants to give employees good conditions, inspire them to choose sustainable means of transport, and contribute to a cycling culture.

Bicycle-friendly workplace is Lund Municipality's award for employers that make it easier for employees to cycle. This year's winner is AF Bostäder with the motivation:

“AF Bostäder has once again shown a solid and endless commitment. Not only does AF Bostäder meet the 18 criteria and all three possible stars, but AF Bostäder has also carried out major work on sustainable transport. AF Bostäder works actively to create a cycling culture in the workplace and offer good opportunities for employees. This work should be seen as a clear inspiration.”

In 2020, for example, we will offer all employees bicycle service-at-work and mountain biking as a fitness activity. We have invested in more electric bicycles for the office, had workshops on fossil fuel-free transports and put up signs with encouraging messages linked to cycling next to key cabinets and shelves for bicycle batteries.

AF Bostäder also participated in 2019 and was awarded a prize for "Cycling Idea of the Year" with the motivation: "AF Bostäder has shown extra creativity when they have taken a collective grip on their cycling-related efforts."

There are great benefits in working with the bicycle issue, for employees' health and for reducing the climate impact. We are happy that the employees are positive about the sustainable transport initiatives and we promise to continue working actively with this also in the future.
