Advancing Sustainable Commuting at LinkedIn

Danielle Glaser
Head of Bay Area Transportation

Session Description

In January, LinkedIn joined Microsoft in their carbon negative pledge, with a goal to be carbon negative by 2030, and to remove all historical carbon emissions by 2050. One large area of focus is the employee commute. Danielle will share what this announcement means for the LinkedIn commute program, and dive deep into how they are continuing to enhance their bike program to get more butts on bikes.
