Swisspacer Bike2Work Challenge
19 April, 2022 - 8 June, 2022
Bike2Work Challenge to end ocean plastic waste
From April 19 to June 8, Swisspacer will hold a Bike2Work Challenge to address climate change and the overwhelming amount of plastic that enters oceans every day. As we continue to create more plastic waste, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.
Swisspacer is committed to leading every business action with sustainability as a focal point. We take social and environmental responsibility seriously and want to ensure equal opportunities for current and future generations.
We want to shape our behaviors and foster a culture of commitment by bringing people together to work on a common goal. With the Bike2Work Challenge, along with reducing our emissions footprint, we commit to support Plastic Bank initiatives. With every kilometer we commute to work by bicycle, ocean bound plastic waste will be collected, recycled, and reprocessed.
While plastic has improved and simplified our lives, we have also become used to it as a convenience. We encourage all Swisspacer to join the challenge!
