Green employee benefits are an easy, impactful, and low-cost way for companies to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability, and engage employees in sustainability on a personal level. Long-time employees and new recruits alike appreciate company- provided options and discounts for green products and services - helping companies retain and attract top talent. And employees engaging in sustainable practices at a personal level reinforce similar perspectives at work.
Examples of green benefit programs, include socially and environmentally responsible 401k/403b investment options, purchase programs for home energy efficiency improvements, renewable energy technologies (solar, wind, etc), and hybrid, electric, and alternative fuel vehicles; and alternative commuting options, such as telecommuting, public transit, shuttles, and carpooling.
