Greening Your Employees’ Commute

October 21, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am

Free – $15

Join us for a workshop covering different ways to incentivize employees to take other forms of transportation, and what considerations unique to WNY must be taken into account.

Pre registration is required. Register HERE!


This panel discussion is ideal for:  Sustainability Directors, Sustainability / Environmental Consultants, Environmental Compliance Officers, Environment Health & Safety Professionals, Human Resources Personnel, Sustainability Managers, Facilities Managers who deal with parking, bike facilities, clearing sidewalks, charging stations etc.

Did you know that the average American has a work commute of about 25 minutes each way, and flies about 17 hours per year? When remote employees are returning to their workplaces after a sudden shift to remote, companies have a golden opportunity to encourage employees to lower commuting emissions.


You will learn about:


–  Commuter programs for businesses

– Infrastructure considerations when installing electric charging stations

– Pros and cons of telecommuting

– Resources available to employers encourage the use of alternative forms of transportation

– How implementation of these programs can contribute to a safe and equitable community for your business and its surrounding area
