Clean Commute Contest 

The following organizations were announced as winners of the 2012 Clean Commute Contest on June 5th, 2012 at the Maryland Green Registry Membership and Awards Event at the Robinson Nature Center in Columbia, MD.

Winners:

Havre de Grace Seafood Festival

Havre de Grace Seafood Festival, an August event featuring Chesapeake Bay seafood speciaties, was recognized for having the highest percentage reduction in employee vehicle commute miles.  They reduced 69% of their employee commute travel through teleworking and efficient use of virtual meetings.  In addition, they use a Smart car for business travel and encourage the use of shuttles at their annual event .

GEICO

GEICO  was recognized for having the highest actual reduction in employee vehicle commute miles.  Their corporate headquarters, located near a Metro stop in Chevy Chase, Maryland, offers subsidies for Metro riders and Zip Car users, bike racks, showers, and van pools for employees living in the same area.  These incentives have led to a 6.4 million mile reduction in employee vehicle commute miles on an annual basis.  

 Finalists:

Beveridge & Diamond

Many of Beveridge & Diamond's employees have chosen to live in Baltimore and be close enough to be able to walk, run, bike and take public transportation to work.  The firm supports public transportation use by allowing flexibility in work schedules to coincide with public transit schedules and encourages telecommuting where possible.
