Travel behavior associated with commercial office buildings has far-reaching environmental, health and business impacts.
Under many circumstances, occupant and visitor travel constitute the largest single contributor to environmental impacts of commercial office buildings. In addition, commute choices regarding trip frequency, travel distance, and transportation mode significantly impact employees’ quality of life and overall job satisfaction.
USGBC and StreetLight Data teamed up to study the use of aggregated, anonymous cellular data in characterizing commuting distances. The goals of the study were to understand how such cellular data could augment current tools and provide new insights that can guide future green office building certification standards and help companies improve commuting experiences for their employees.
StreetLight CEO Laura Schewel and USGBC VP of Research Chris Pyke will discuss key learnings from the study and their vision for improving the quality and relevance of commuting information in commercial building decisions.
