WHO developed the HEAT tool to provide transport engineers with an estimate of the societal value of reduced mortality from physical activity of regular walking or cycling. ECF works together with the United Nations and the World Health Organization for the promotion of cycling.Across the EU ECF is hearing from places where HEAT’s being used. In Barcelona, the use of the public bike system was evaluated with HEAT. In Belgium, it was the value of the goal of 20% mode share for cycling in the capital – €250,000,000. WHO’s Health Economic Assessment Tool has been used in Finland covering over a quarter of the country’s population. In Malta, ECF member used HEAT and estimated that the value of a bit of increased cycling there is €8,800,000 per year. At the level of the EU, cycling is currently estimated to save 27,860 lives each year from premature mortality – and that’s worth almost 200,000,000,000 € per year. Doubling cycling would multiply those benefits many times more.The purpose of the HEAT tool was to provide transport engineers with an estimate of the societal value of reduced mortality from physical activity of regular walking or cycling. As you can see there are many others who see they can use it to value cycling in their city or country. How can you use it? Why should you?We want to help you find answers to these questions.
