Be a part of the challenge. The Great Race for Clean Air Challenge is a friendly competition between Tri-Valley area employers to see which can encourage the greatest number of their employees to use commute alternatives such as walking, biking carpooling, vanpooling and public transit, thereby, resulting in the largest percentage reduction of CO2 emissions.

The Great Race
The Great Race for Clean Air Challenge is a great opportunity for employers to show their concern for their employees and the environment. Participation in the challenge is simple:
  • Use the contact information below to get your company signed up for the challenge.
  • Once registered, employers will participate in a baseline survey during a one-week period in September. At this time, The Tri-Valley Air Quality Resource team will share ideas, tips and best practices with participating employers to support and encourage the use of commute alternatives.
  • During the month of October, employers will be provided an easy-to-use on-line tracking system for their employees to track participation for the month.
  • In early November, a second survey will be administered to determine the percentage changes in CO2 emissions.
Once the data has been collected, winners will be announced for the highest company participation, the largest percentage reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the largest mode change from solo driving.
