The Employer-Based Trip Reduction (EBTR) Webinar Series will provide employers with an opportunity to learn about vehicle emission reduction tools and strategies other Utah companies are using to reduce their contribution to poor air quality, provide benefits to employees, and reduce costs associated with transportation. It is the goal of this series to help companies identify vehicle emission reduction strategies that work for them as they develop their own unique EBTR programs. To kick off the series on January 11th of this year, the Division of Air Quality (DAQ) hosted an EBTR Symposium where several employers shared some of the strategies they have used to reduce vehicle emissions, and the Utah Department of Transportation discussed strategies and tools they have developed to assist companies in this effort. All future meetings in the series will be held exclusively through webinars and will focus on specific topics suggested by series participants.
Air quality has become a major concern for Utah’s citizens and policy makers, particularly with regard to high particulate matter (PM2.5) and ozone levels in the more heavily populated areas. Since vehicles are one of the main sources of the pollutants that lead to the formation of ozone and PM2.5 in Utah, we are pleased that many companies throughout the state are taking voluntary steps to reduce their vehicle emissions. We are hopeful that this series of webinars will result in more companies voluntarily implementing EBTR programs.
The next webinar will present information on the Utah Transit Authority’s Vanpooling and public transportation ECO Pass programs. Employers will learn the benefits of these programs and how their employees can take advantage of them.
When: March 30, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
