EDPR NA Houston Promotes Carpooling to its Employees
EDP Renewables North America (EDPR NA) was recently recognized by the Houston-Galveston Area Council for its efforts to promote carpooling.
Employees at EDPR NA’s Houston office are encouraged to utilize alternative modes of transportation such as buses, bicycles, and carpools, in an effort to lessen the impacts of climate change and reduce traffic and congestion on area highways.
In 2014, the EDPR team in Houston partnered with Carpool World– an organization that seeks to assist Houston-based commuters in finding a nearby carpool group. Through its partnership with Carpool World, EDPR NA continues to proactively track sustainability information regarding its employees’ commutes, including the amount of carbon and gasoline saved as well as the number of cars taken off the road. Employees who participate in this initiative receive rewards for taking greener trips and can redeem these rewards for discounts at restaurants and other retailers and for tickets to shows and attractions.
