You and your company can have a positive impact on the quality of life on Long Island!
Encouraging your employees to use transit is a great sustainability initiative. Currently, Americans use more energy for transportation than any other activity including industrial and commercial use. In fact, as much energy is often used by employees getting to work than they consume at work!
Companies like yours that encourage the use of transit help conserve energy, reduce pollution and greenhouse gases, decrease traffic congestion, and increase employee productivity.
Plus, with unpredictable gas prices, using transit makes sense!
Sustainability starts with transit.
Encouraging use of public transportation is a great sustainability initiative with multiple benefits:
- Taking public transportation offers an immediate alternative for individuals seeking to reduce their energy use.
- For each mile your employees don’t drive, a pound of CO2 is kept out of the air, reducing an employee’s overall carbon footprint, while also improving our air quality.
REDUCED PARKING PROBLEMS
- Promoting awareness of transit options helps employees find alternate ways to get to work.
- Using transit saves your employees money on fuel, maintenance, insurance, parking and taxes.
- Offering the pre-tax commuter benefit program can save employees up to 40% of their commuting costs and save your company thousands of dollars in payroll taxes.
PROMOTING ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORTATION CAN ALSO ASSIST IN ACHIEVING LEED CERTIFICATION.
