Key Equipment Finance announced it is a winner of the Go-Tober smart commuting challenge by Way To Go, a program of the Denver Regional Council of Governments to reduce single occupancy vehicle use. Winners received a $10,000 paid mass media prize.

“Sustainability is an important component of Key’s overall corporate responsibility, so we are excited to see our smart-commuting employees recognized as Go-Tober champions,” said Lori G. Frasier, senior vice president, strategy and performance management, Key Equipment Finance.  “It is our employees who live out our mission to help our clients and communities thrive, and reducing pollution and traffic congestion benefits everyone.”

Key Equipment Finance competed in the Go-Tober “Going Strong” category with 99 of its more than 200 employees logging alternative commutes, resulting in:

  • 1,106 trips logged
  • 18,837 miles logged
  • 6.3 tons of CO2 reduced
  • $8,674 saved

The Go-Tober effort was led by Key Equipment Finance’s Project impACT internal sustainability and wellness committee, which organizes and promotes a variety of employee and community giving activities throughout the year.

“This couldn’t have been possible without the hard work, dedication and team work from our employees,” said Paige Yungstrom, who leads Project impACT.

KeyCorp has been recognized nationally for its sustainability efforts. The company’s concept of sustainability goes beyond its own operations to include a vision for a sustainable community. This includes both the responsible management of the company’s operations and business processes to drive efficiency, and the creation of products and services that contribute to reducing resource consumption and to investments that support a sustainable economy.
