Y‑12 National Security Complex was recently recognized for meeting the National Standard of Excellence, awarded by Best Workplaces for Commuters (BWC).
BWC is an innovative program that encourages sustainable transportation. Qualified employers receive national recognition and designation for offering commuter benefits, and this year marks the second year Smart Trips and BWC have recognized local companies.
The Sustainability and Stewardship group estimates that Y‑12's compressed work week prevents more than 190,000 vehicle miles traveled each week and eliminates about 4,500 tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year.
