Transportation

Environmental impacts associated with transporting members of the workforce can represent a major part of an organization's environmental footprint.

Transportation

GRI:
EN29

The direct measurement of transportation activity is shown here. Measuring vehicle use and reducing it (e.g. by using teleconferencing technology, carpooling) is the most efficient way to reduce transportation impacts. Ecology currently tracks and reports vehicle miles traveled in four categories. Employee commuting-to-work statistics are not currently reported to the Office of Financial Management and are not accurately tracked, although they are surveyed for our Commute Trip Reduction Program.
