We are stoked to announce our inaugural Suunto Commuting Day to be held on Thursday, September 22. It’s simple to join: track your commute with a Suunto watch or a Hammerhead bike computer and tag the activity as a commute in Suunto app. After the event, we’ll show how much CO2e emissions our community has saved.
“One single bike ride to work may not seem like a big commitment,” says Suunto’s Sustainability manager Heidi Heikkinen. “But once you do that on a regular basis, you will start to see how it all adds up. And, when looking at the entire community, it is clear that thousands of people choosing human-powered commutes can definitely make a difference. Especially knowing that transportation is one of the biggest sources of emissions.”
You don’t even need to have a Suunto watch or a Suunto compatible Hammerhead bike computer to start tracking your human-powered commutes: you can also use Suunto app and track with it for free. You can download Suunto app for iOS here and for Android here.
“Suunto’s approach to sustainability is to increase positive effects, not just to reduce the negative ones. These are called, respectively, our handprint and footprint. We aim to tread lightly, and be a force for good. We believe in the power of community. Together, we can affect change by raising our voices and taking real action. Our ambassadors and our community care as much as we do,” says Brand manager Antti Laiho.
