Urban was recently named a Diamond Level winner at GVF’s annual TDM Awards Breakfast. The award represents the firm’s commitment to programs and initiatives that help reduce congestion and improve air quality, through travel demand management (TDM) and best sustainable practices.
“Urban is honored to once again be recognized at Diamond Level status at GVF’s TDM Awards Breakfast,” said Urban Transportation Marketing Coordinator Kate Mundie, who accepted the award on behalf of the firm. “We are committed to achieving the highest levels of sustainability with not only our projects, but also our day-to-day operations.”
Urban is a previous seven-time winner of the program. Diamond Level was added last year as a new goal for organizations to strive toward. Urban was recognized at this level for many of its programs, including offering incentives to employees for walking, biking, carpooling/vanpooling, or taking transit to work, and for offering the maximum pre-tax transportation benefit, as defined by the IRS.
The TDM Awards Breakfast featured a very dynamic and educational panel that included Rebecca Johnson from AIA Philadelphia and Bobby Fijian of Cross Properties. Attendees had the opportunity to hear from the innovative sustainability leaders, ranging in various sectors, on why they invest in TDM programs. Tamala Edwards, 6abc Action News anchor, served as the master of ceremonies, distributing sustainability awards to over 30 organizations.
