Clean Air Day Employer Pledge               Clean Air Day Commuter Pledge     

Employers
Be a part of the effort towards cleaner air – register your organization and promote alternative transportation on Clean Air Day, October 7.

Take the pledge and encourage employees to pledge, too. When you pledge, you’ll receive a unique link to share with employees so that you can track participation rates. Participating employers can compete against other San Diego region businesses to be recognized on an iCommute leaderboard, in a print ad, and more!  In addition, participating organizations will earn a point toward a SANDAG iCommute Diamond Award. View the full employer leaderboard as of 9/23!

All participating employers have access to an e-toolkit with promotional materials and support from the iCommute team. iCommute can provide resources to help you grow your commuter program. Let us help inform you and your employees about the benefits of commute alternatives, including telework.  

If you missed the Clean Air Day Employer Webinar on September 9, you can watch the recording to learn how you can encourage your employees to reduce their carbon footprint by leaving their car at home.
