The awards are given to organizations that encourage alternative transportation for employees to promote environmental sustainability within their community.
GVF is a not-for-profit organization that, for over 30 years, has encouraged organizations to turn towards alternative forms of transportation to inspire positive change in our climate, employee equity, and overall quality of life. These alternatives include biking, public transit, walking, working from home, and carpooling. TDM refers to the strategies, programs, and policies that are designed to reduce single occupancy trips and enable more efficient transportation systems for individuals.
