RNL Design’s New Bike Share Program Makes it Look Easy ‘B’-ing Green
Denver, CO – RNL, an international architecture, design and planning firm, has launched a bike share program for employees in its Denver office. As a Certified B Corporation, RNL aims to use the bike share program to promote a culture of wellness and healthy mobility choices.
Rob Ollett, Project Architect at RNL Denver, inspired by his own passion for cycling – both for recreation and as a means of transportation – is spearheading the bike share initiative.
“It’s easy to see how riding a bike boosts health and wellness, and can reduce community health costs,” Ollett said “With Denver’s accelerated rate of growth, biking as a mode of transportation will also enable better connections to our community and reduce traffic and pollution. As a team, we are practicing what we preach; we take our responsibility as architects, designers and planners seriously, and we’re committed to building a world with a brighter, greener future.”
RNL bike-sharing program in Denver includes five branded bikes and helmets, which are stored in the main entry lobby, providing employees quick and convenient access outside to commute to and from work, to and from meetings, as well as for quick errands or rides around town for exercise.
“As a Certified B Corporation, RNL is committed to meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, and improving the quality of life in our communities through our business,” said RNL Director of Sustainability Rachel Bannon-Godfrey. “The bike share program is one more example of our commitment to sustainability and the wellness of our employees in action.”
RNL’s commitment to expanding conversations about mobility in the communities it serves extends beyond conversations with clients and employees. The company also recently sponsored the Denver premier of the film Bikes vs. Cars, a snapshot of a global movement that is challenging a core marker of society: mobility.
