Punch Pubs & Co has partnered with Train Hugger, the UK’s first sustainable train ticketing platform, to help them on their journey to net zero.

Punch is committed to reducing their impact on people and the planet through ambitious targets, underpinned by their ‘Doing Well by Doing Good’ programme.

Every time a train booking is made by Punch, Train Hugger provides them with travel and emissions data for reporting purposes and also plants a climate resilient tree in the UK through a partnership with the Royal Forestry Society.

Train Hugger’s mission is to restore the British countryside, with a third of all of its revenue going to UK environmental causes.

Punch is already promoting Train Hugger to their employees, Publicans, Management Partners and customers.

Punch Pubs & Co CEO, Clive Chesser said: “We are always looking at innovative ways to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, and that includes the most efficient way to travel.

“We encourage car-sharing where feasible whilst the majority of our new company cars are full electric.

“It’s fantastic to have partnered with the Team at Train Hugger who also have sustainability at the heart of their offering and make you feel good about travelling.”

Edmund Caldecott, CEO of Train Hugger added: “We’re over the moon to be partnering with Punch Pubs & Co. By buying their train tickets through Train Hugger, employees will be creating Punch Pubs forests all over the land. Employees have already put oaks, rowans and grey willows into the ground. We’re really excited by the potential of this partnership.”
