2017 Vision Award for Transportation - Delta Dental of Washington

Delta Dental of Washington

Delta Dental of Washington (DDWA) made a big move in 2017 and took the opportunity to significantly evolve its employee commute program. In the two months following their move from Northgate, DDWA employees reached a drive-alone rate of 15% - about half the downtown average. One strategy implemented was daily parking rates. The MyCommute program, powered by LUUM, has given employees the flexibility to get the most out of their commute and occupy fewer parking stalls. In June alone, 29,212.4 lbs. of CO2 have been avoided by DDWA employees because they chose alternative commutes. DDWA is a tenant of 400 Fairview, a member building developed by Skanska and winner of the Leadership Award at the first Vision Awards. The building is managed by Blanton Turner, also a 2030 Member. Achieving this transportation reduction would not have been possible without the cooperation of a management company that is committed to the 2030 goals.
