2014 Sustainability-based Annual Report

21 Smart Commute The greenest wheels are often two wheels or no wheels powered by human energy. In 2014, Horizon was named the Metrolinx Smart Commute Employer of the Year for the Hamilton region. The company won for its outstanding achievement in the areas of commitment, leadership, innovation and delivering results by encouraging employees to walk, cycle, carpool and use transit. Horizon also actively participates in smart commute and carpool weeks, bike to work days and outreach events to increase employees’ knowledge, participation and support. We installed bicycle shelters at three work locations and introduced dedicated carpool parking spots. Horizon is also partnering with the City of Hamilton to establish carpool parking in nearby lots. All of these initiatives help to reduce traffic and greenhouse gas emissions. 215,000 km of travel distance reduced by our employees 47,000 kg of Greenhouse Gas Emissions avoided Joseph Almeida, Director, Supply Chain Management, proudly accepts the 2014 Metrolinx Smart Commute Employer of the Year Award for Hamilton Region
