Current environment concerns preoccupy not only the state, and individuals nowadays 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” (translated from French website link).
To address further concerns, the French government has imposed since January 2018, new laws regarding the optimization and efficiency of business travel and transport to reduce pollutants 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, especially to respect the conditions while keeping their mobility budgets in check. It is here, where our Glide 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. Glide carsharing can be implemented into existing fleets to optimize utilization 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 pollutants particles would reduce up to 30% and 45% regarding nitrogen dioxides. Also, by introducing EVs to employees, they are able to try out these types of cars, typically for the first time, perhaps influencing their decisions for personal vehicles.
“Professional carsharing benefits include decreased transportation costs, increased utilization of company vehicles, provision of mobility solutions for employees’ personal needs and increased eco-friendliness.”
Companies increasingly need to be aware of how they can reduce their carbon footprint, not only in France, but around the world. By adopting Glide with low emissions vehicles, your company will become more eco-friendly, respecting the RSE law, the mobility plan and improving your ecological footprint.
