Less impacts, more sports!

In order to limit our impact in terms of air pollution and climate change, we can all do our bit, however big or small, by favouring “soft” modes of transport like bicycles, scooters, car-pooling, public transport, etc.

Participation in the regional mobility challenge
Definition
« Mobility »

Mobility refers to all customer and collaborator journeys, whether professional or home-to work.

In most cases, due to the geographic location of each site, the subject is dealt with at a purely local level. The actions concern for example free short or medium term bike share or days devoted to creating more awareness about the issue of mobility

“C’est un événement qui a pour objectif de provoquer l’étincelle chez chacun d’entre nous et changer nos habitudes”

Company Mobility Plans (CMP)

 

In France, some sites are beginning to put in place a mobility program with the creation of Company Mobility Plans (CMP) in accordance with current regulations. Based on a behavioural diagnosis, plans are set up with accompanying objectives to reduce private car use in favour of less polluting forms of transport.

Some actions have actually gone national. France is a good example. Bicycle parking facilities are systematically integrated into all new buildings. A platform to manage car-pooling between collaborators is also being developed.
