A Better City TMA had the great pleasure of kicking off 2016 with the Excellence in Commuter Options (ECO) Awards. Held at the historic Fenway Park on Tuesday, March 22nd, the ECO Awards honor Massachusetts employers making a distinctive effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and overall traffic congestion. Those recognized by the ECO awards have utilized the resources made available by TMAs (Like ABC TMA) as well as having introduced independent initiatives to reduce their number of drive alone commuters. ECO Awards recipients are innovators in their community and leaders in the movement of environmental sustainability.
We’d like to acknowledge the following members who won awards this year. Congratulations to: Eastern Research Group, Shriners Hospital for Children, and Eastern Bank, Boston who achieved the Pacesetter level award, HNTB, WilmerHale, Putnam Investments, CBRE – 10 St. James/75 Arlington, and St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center who achieved the Leader Level, and Massachusetts General Hospital, John Hancock, US EPA, Boston Properties- Atlantic Wharf, and Boston University Charles River Campus who achieved Pinnacle Award level recognition. Lastly, we’d like to recognize Massachusetts General Hospital who in providing unique carpool initiatives for their employees, demonstrated the highest level of leadership in the promotion of sustainable transportation. For their accomplishments, Massachusetts General Hospital was honored with the Spotlight Award, and we are proud to call them a member.
