IntegrityMass Transmit Subsidy Program
Apart from offering a full suite of benefits, Motive Power encourages environmentally-friendly commuting and travel practices for all employees. MP launched the Mass Transit Subsidy Program, which reimburses a portion of public transportation costs specific to each office region. Our mission is to reduce our employees’ carbon emissions and save employees money and stress on daily commutes.
We see how much trash and plastic ends up in the beach, so we work to make all Motive Power offices plastic-free environments. We practice what we preach and avoid any unnecessary plastic products and packaging in our office whenever possible. At company events, plastic use is nonexistent. Employees are encouraged to bring reusable containers for leftovers, and we promote the use of reusable bottles by providing a water jug instead of plastic water bottles.
We employ and continuously develop programs for all our office locations, that promote sustainability and lessen our impact on the environment. Recycling programs are in place in all offices and we source our energy from renewable sources when available.
New Office Structure
Our headquarters in Petaluma has implemented a new office structure. This location is central to our support team, reducing commute time and environmental impact. Our office features energy-efficient lighting, 365-day programmable thermostats, and solar panels that help to lower our demand on the power grid and decrease greenhouse emissions.
We also have an EV charging station which promotes the use of electric vehicles and sustainable transportation. We recycle, compost, and maintain a veggie garden on our property. Additionally, compost replenishes and revitalizes soil with trace minerals and organic material as well as helps soil sequester carbon. Lastly, our xeriscape landscaping reduces the need for supplemental irrigation and helps our water conservation efforts.
Office Renewable Energy
Our Petaluma office is part of the Marin Clean Energy program which sources electricity consisting of 60% renewable sources. This office headquarters has solar panels and an electric car charging station to help further reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As we move forward with our sustainability efforts towards 100% Carbon Neutral at Motive Power, we will continue to look for opportunities that support our mission.
