Every year, MassRides, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, and MassCommute recognize employer’s efforts toward making a more sustainable Massachusetts at the Massachusetts Excellence in Commuter Options (ECO) Awards. Tufts University was named a Pinnacle employer at the 2012 Massachusetts ECO Awards last month.
There are three levels of recognition depending on the number of transportation benefits programs an employer offers: Pacesetter (at least 4), Leader (at least 7) and Pinnacle. Tufts was recognized in last year’s ECO Awards as a Leader and moved up this year to become a Pinnacle employer.
The Office of Sustainability would like to thank in particular our sustainability advocates in Human Resources, Public Safety, and Facilities Services for supporting the initiatives that made it possible to win the ECO Award.
