Clean Commute Challenge


*In light of the rapidly evolving coronavirus outbreak, please practice social distancing and follow government guidelines for gatherings and activities. Your health and your safety are our top priorities.*

A clean commute challenge encourages employees to make small changes to reduce their travel footprint by incorporating lower-carbon alternatives such as walking, cycling and taking public transportation into their commutes.

What To Do

Organize employees into teams and encourage them to track the total distance they travel using lower carbon transportation alternatives. Offer incentives for the team that improves their commuting habits the most.

How Will This Action Create Change?

Organizing a clean commute challenge can help you:

  • Promote active lifestyle choices that benefit the environment.
  • Demonstrate impact by tracking the reduction in your office’s carbon footprint.
  • Connect employees with each other to increase opportunities for carpooling, cycling and other alternative methods of getting to work.
  • Bolster friendly competition in the office.

When you’ve completed this action, share your results with us for an opportunity to be featured in Living Planet @ Work communications.
