Low-carbon mobility at SAFRA is also an internal commitment!
Today in France, 70% of home-work trips are made with individual vehicles, most of which are self-driving.
Since February, we have launched a campaign to promote carpooling, to encourage our employees to use their personal vehicles less for home-work trips. This action is part of our CSR approach.
The company is based in Albi, in a rural area, so we are closer to 90%, with very often long journeys, to destinations that are not served by public transport. Carpooling is therefore perfectly adapted for a good part of our employees 🚗.
It is also a great way to increase purchasing power. Carpooling is indeed subsidized by the Government, as part of the “National Plan for Daily Carpooling” set up in January, but also by The Occitania / Pyrenees-Mediterranean Region, which finances a non-negligible part of the trips made, and finally by the Grand Albigeois agglomeration, which presented yesterday during a moment of exchange organized at SAFRA, the financial aid for passengers and drivers 💶💸.
Despite all these incentives, we are aware that changing travel habits is necessarily a constraint, so we roll up our sleeves and communicate so that each month, 1 or more employees try carpooling and embark on the adventure.
Every little gesture counts for the planet 🌎💚
