UHN has been designated a Smart Commute 2016 Gold Workplace thanks to a significant reduction in the number of employees who drive alone to work.
How Green are UHN's commuters?
During the 2015 Pan Am Games, travel initiatives included creating travel plans and encouraging staff to follow the 4R's:
"This designation demonstrates UHN's commitment to promoting and supporting sustainable travel options, positioning it as a leader in corporate social responsibility," says Nadine Navarro, Manager at Smart Commute.
UHN also received a special "Games Champion" certification for its management of heightened transportation demands during the 2015 Pan Am & Parapan Am Games last summer.
"We cure our commute, our city, our patients and ourselves."
"In the hospital environment where we strive to help patients, pollution from car emissions undoes that very goal," explains Lisa Vanlint, Energy Steward in the Energy & Environment Department and champion of sustainable transportation at UHN.
"By participating in sustainable forms of transportation, we cure our commute, our city, our patients and ourselves. This award is truly a joint effort."
Several key UHN departments collaborate regularly to encourage public transit, carpooling, walking, cycling and more: Energy & Environment, Emergency Preparedness, Human Resources TTC VIP Administration, Business Operations, Parking Office, and Wellness.
