Cycle to Work Scheme provider Green Commute Initiative is delighted to announce that it
has been awarded ISO 27001 certification for a second year running. This is a key
accreditation in relation to protecting against information security threats, including
hackers and cyber-attacks.

The ISO 27001 certification enables GCI to demonstrate to it’s customers and stakeholders
that GCI takes the security of their information seriously. We are living in an ever-evolving
security landscape and GCI’s customers are more stringent than ever before in their
procurement processes.

Given the recent security breaches by well-known consumer brands and the significant
fines issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office, it is understandable that
organisations have become much more aware of potential security risks.

More sales success for GCI
The certification follows yet another successful year for GCI with orders for 2021 up 23%
on the previous year. This caps off a five-year period of substantial year-on-year increases
and confirms GCI is a significant provider and more than able to compete with the more
traditional, profit-driven, scheme providers.

Joanna Flint, Marketing Director, says “The whole team at Green Commute Initiative is
delighted that we have secured ISO 27001 accreditation for a second year. Customers
have become more savvy when it comes to codes of conduct and its our responsibility to
meet their expectations. This accreditation will give current customers, as well as new
customers, confidence that GCI is a responsible Cycle to Work Scheme provider.“

Rob Howes, GCI’s Founder and Managing Director, adds “This accreditation tops of yet
another great year for GCI. During 2021, we celebrated our fifth anniversary and saw sales
orders soar by 23% on the previous year, a sure sign that employers are realising there is
an ethical and fair choice when offering active travel choices to their employees.”
