Current environment concerns not only the state and individuals, but also companies. CO2 emissions are becoming more and more important to companies, especially in France. The French term Responsabilité Sociétale des Entreprises (RSE) designates the responsibility of companies to improve their impact on society and the environment. Since 2001, it has been relevant in attempting to make sure that companies “assimilate environmental and socials concerns to their commercial activities and partnerships” in the purpose of “investing in human capital, environment and relationships”.

To address further concerns, the French government has imposed since January 2018, new laws regarding the optimisation and efficiency of business travel and transport to reduce emissions and reduce traffic. Mandatory in France for every company with more than 100 employees, the mobility plan or “Plan de Mobilité” becomes a true challenge for some companies. A major concern is following the regulations while keeping their mobility budgets in check. It is here, where our B2B car sharing services can help alleviate some of those stresses. 

Car sharing in a company is a way to meet mobility needs of employees within a company by making a fleet of vehicles available to be used. carsharing can be integrated into existing fleets to optimize utilisation or it can be an opportunity for companies to introduce new, more environmentally friendly vehicles to their employees. Electric vehicles (EVs) don’t emit pollutants like CO2 or nitrogen oxides, therefore improving the quality of air and public health, especially in crowded polluted urban cities. According to studies, if 20% of vehicles in city centers were electric, the concentration of nitrogen dioxide pollutants particles would reduce by up to 45%. Also, by introducing EVs to employees, they can try out these types of cars, perhaps influencing their decisions for personal vehicles.

Companies increasingly need to be aware of how they can reduce their carbon footprint, not only in France, but around the world. By adopting with low emissions vehicles, your company can become more eco-friendly, respect the RSE law, and establish a mobility plan.
