International architecture, design and planning firm RNL
has launched a bike-share program for employees at its Denver office. The company's intent is to promote a culture of wellness and healthy mobility choices.
"It's easy to see how riding a bike boosts health and wellness and can reduce community health costs," says Rob Ollett, project architect at RNL, who is spearheading the initiative. "With Denver's accelerated rate of growth, biking as a mode of transportation will also enable better connections to our community and reduce traffic and pollution. As a team, we are practicing what we preach; we take our responsibility as architects, designers and planners seriously, and we're committed to building a world with a brighter, greener future."
The program includes five branded bikes and helmets, which are stored in the main entry lobby to provide employees quick and convenient access outside to commute to and from work, to and from meetings, as well as for quick errands or rides around town for exercise.
"As a Certified B Corporation, RNL is committed to meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance and improving the quality of life in our communities through our business," says Rachel Bannon-Godfrey, RNL's director of sustainability. "The bike share program is one more example of our commitment to sustainability and the wellness of our employees in action."
