GREAT RACE FOR CLEAN AIR
The Bay Area Air Quality Management District and the Tri-Valley Air Quality Resource Team present the Great Race for Clean Air 2011. Be a part of the challenge to make a difference in the Bay Area. The Great Race for Clean Air is a friendly competition between Bay Area employers to encourage the use of commute alternatives such as transit, carpooling, vanpooling, walking and bicycling, rather than driving solo to work, to help reduce greenhouse gases and smog levels in the Bay Area.
The Great Race
The Great Race for Clean Air will run from September through October, 2011 and is a great opportunity for employers to show concern for their employees and the environment. Participation in the challenge is simple:
- Register at www.sparetheair.org; Employer registrations are due by August 15th.
- Once registered, employers will receive a welcome packet including a series of email messages and posters to promote the Great Race for Clean Air within your organization.
- During September and October employees will record their commutes in an easy-to-use online trip journal provided by 511.org. All participating employees will be eligible for weekly prize drawings.
- At the conclusion of the event, participating employers will be awarded based on their efforts to reduce CO2 emissions.
Once the data has been collected at the conclusion of the Great Race for Clean Air, winners will be announced in several categories. Awards will be given based on criteria such as highest percentage of company employees participating and the most reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
