Project goal

The French subsidiary has decided to promote low-emission mobility solutions. The company has therefore purchased bicycles and an electric vehicle. This actively motivates employees to rethink the way they get around and use alternative methods.


  • Use bicycles instead of cars for short journeys.
  • Encourage new ways of thinking and promote ecologically sustainable transport solutions.

Two climate-neutral ideas

In order to reduce carbon emissions, the French subsidiary has created two offers: Employees can use bicycles for certain journeys and an electric car has been added to the vehicle fleet.

Bicycles for use during break times

Providing an ecologically sustainable option for break times, two bicycles are available, which can be booked by employees. Whether for a lunch break in the fresh air or a short shopping trip, the bikes can be used at any time, provided they are available.

Electric vehicle for the vehicle fleet

The French subsidiary is gradually phasing out its diesel and petrol vehicles in favor of hybrid and electric vehicles. This will result in 50% lower emissions and 50% lower energy costs. To demonstrate that the vehicle is efficient, professional, and suitable for everyday use, the subsidiary also took part in a rally with a Tesla. To raise awareness and promote low-emission driving, this vehicle will be used in particular for customer visits.
