Chew Green C.I.C. is a social enterprise, we operate as a business but reinvest income generated for a social purpose.
Chew Green’s objects “are to carry on activities which benefit the community and in particular (without limitation) to promote low carbon and active mobility, to create jobs, promote economic regeneration and to promote the use of new technology to deliver healthier lives in the United Kingdom”.
The range of projects we will pursue is broad, but generally we will look to work in geographical areas where there is strong community and political support for pursuing a more sustainable way of living.
We will pursue job creation and regeneration as outputs from work that primarily focuses on low carbon and active mobility.
Using technology to enhance active mobility can mean deploying new cost effective shared mobility systems, but can also mean deploying new sensor technology to allow communities to monitor the quality of public space.
Our directors have considerable experience in both the UK and Europe in deploying a mix of built environment changes and behavior change measures to increase levels of walking and cycling. Our experience is primarily with “starter cities”, for example places that are looking to create and promote their first bicycle network which will increase a low mode share to above 10% of all trips.
