The GoPerks Golden Modes
The GoPerks Golden Modes was a tremendous success! We recognized our champion GoPerks smart commuters, who saved over one million pounds of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere in 2020, and the winners were honored with special video messages from Governor Roy Cooper and NC DHHS Secretary Dr. Mandy Cohen.
Keynote speaker Corey Branch, Raleigh City Councilman for District C, described how important transit options are in a growing metro area like the Triangle: "Today we're celebrating these milestones of greenhouse gas emissions reductions through our GoPerks initiative program; it provides options for positive impact to improve the quality of life by improving air quality, increase the standard of living through encouraging and educating commuters.”
To see it all, and hear from some of our champion commuters in their own words, watch the recording of the GoPerks Golden Modes HERE.
2020 GoPerks Achievement Awards
GoTriangle’s GoPerks Achievement Awards ceremony recognized outstanding commuters who reached remarkable milestones in their greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions by choosing smart commutes, and commuters saved nearly 1 million pounds of greenhouse gasses!
At the June 25th virtual event, commuters shared stories of how they saved 10 TONs of greenhouse gases, the Center for Advanced Hindsight provided insight into the psychology of behavior change to improve the triple bottom line, and we designated the 25 Best Workplaces for Commuters.
Watch the 2020 GoPerks Awards Ceremony to learn the total environmental impact of commuters, the benefit on the local economy, and the psychology of behavior change. Hear directly from commuters of why they participate in GoPerks, and why it matters to them.
The GoPerks incentive program is facilitated by Share the Ride NC and rewards employees who track their smart commute choices. Incentives are made possible through financial sponsors so we can provide gift cards to local businesses and events across the Triangle to continue encouraging employees to choose a sustainable commute.
