A number of companies won awards for their sustainable travel effort.
The Travelwest Business Travel Awards was held on November 28 at Weston's Grand Pier and hosted by North Somerset Council.
The event recognised initiatives across a range of categories which have enabled and encouraged a reduction in car travel.
Lucy Shomali, director of development and environment at the council, said: "Congratulations to all nominees and those winning awards.
"The evening was a fantastic celebration of sustainable travel and highlighted the commitment of many businesses across the West of England to making change.
"With almost 50 per cent of North Somerset's carbon emission coming from transport, the switch to more sustainable modes of travel is essential and we're proud to have organisations in North Somerset taking a lead."
