By signing up to the Responsibility Deal iGlobalWellness which is chaired by former Olympian David Moorcroft has agreed to keep five specific pledges from promoting walking or cycling to removing barriers to physical activity during the working day.

In all, iGlobalWellness has signed five pledges: physical activity community pledge, physical activity guideline pledge, active travel pledge, physical activity in the workplace and the physical activity inclusion pledge.
