C-TRAN Success
inequity because that's a huge
deal, " Donaghy said.
C-TRAN's sustainability efforts
have been and continue
to be employee led, shares Eric
Florip, manager of communications,
marketing and customer
experience, adding that the Green
Team was compromised of employee
volunteers that continues
to see organic growth. The team
has worked to emphasize what
the agency and employees can do
behind the scenes to reduce their
carbon footprint with the idea that
every little bit counts. To this extent,
C-TRAN is recycling Keurig
pods collected around the office
and utilizing recycling receptacles
for cigarette butts at BRT stations.
On a bigger scale, C-TRAN
has been phasing in renewable
diesel thanks to a proposal from
the maintenance director, who saw
it as an opportunity to contribute
to a cleaner environment. Tellez-Fowler
explains the board was
supportive of this phased approach
while C-TRAN conducts an alternative
fuel study to examine the
potential use of hydrogen fuel cell,
electric or a mix of alternative fuels
for its fixed-route vehicles.
As part of these ongoing green
efforts, C-TRAN's board adopted
the agency's first sustainability
policy. It was drafted by the
Green Team with Florip leading
the efforts, and then reviewed by
each department before ultimately
being board approved. The policy
captures and preserves efforts already
taken while also serving as
a framework for decision making.
" What the policy does is that
it ensures that it's not dependent
on any one person or any group
of people who happens to be here
now but may not be here in 20
years or 30 years, " Florip said.
C-TRAN's commitment to sustainability
resulted in it becoming
a certified green business through
Vancouver's green business program,
as well as being awarded the
Clark County Green Business of
the Year in 2021.
" When we're thinking about
[sustainability], [it's] not just on
an employee-led scale or just on
a social scale; we're incorporating
those things into every single decision
that gets made throughout
the organization, " Donaghy said.
Technology
Improvements
Bring C-TRAN into
the 21st Century
The agency has also completed
nearly 10 years' worth of technology
upgrades in under half
that time, with one of the bigger
investments being a direct result
of a suggestion from Donaghy.
C-TRAN'S
EXECUTIVE team
makes it a point
to be visible
and active in
community
events, such as
the Clark County
Fair.
