How can we reach our 2020 Greenest City targets?

Encourage people to work closer to home through tax benefits or other measures

More people out of cars (or shorter trips), being more connected to your community, and less time on the road = less money spent and more time doing what you enjoy and a greener and happier population. Tax benefits to those who are able to work closer to home and free support to help people find comparable jobs closer to their community. With some organizations (government civil servants, teachers, etc.) this may be possible through matching / trading positions.

        If all the industrial land was not turn into condos like the Olympic Village and Yaletown. Maybe more people could work closer to home.
        It sounds great in theory but in reality it is completely different.
