Replacing Vehicles

Electric car charging station at Joppa Flats Education Center

The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 27 percent of carbon emissions in the U.S. come from transportation.

Improving the ways we get around is an important factor in reducing emissions.

Mass Audubon has:

  • Replaced 13 of the 16 sedans in our 76 vehicle fleet with more efficient Prius hybrids and one electric vehicle (a Chevy Bolt).
  • Increased the number of meetings held via teleconference or video-conference instead of in-person as a way to cut back on how many miles our staff members drive.
  • Installed an electric vehicle charging stations at several wildlife sanctuaries across the state.
