At the beginning of the year, we carried out a mobility plan:
A simple questionnaire to understand the travel habits of people working on Campus Contern. 34 different companies, +/- 450 people, there had to be synergies … and there are!
Carpooling is a promising alternative for people working in our office complex, with flows from Luxembourg, France and Germany. Some zip codes are shared by more than 5 people, making them true “neighbors”!
To facilitate exchanges and networking, we have launched 3 WhatsApp groups, one for each country.
“The aim is to facilitate interaction: everyone, or almost everyone, uses WhatsApp and knows how the groups work: it’s familiar and therefore easier and more intuitive,” explains Virginie Ducommun, Marketing & CSR.
“Of course, we also strongly encourage carpool-team members to register with Klaxit and validate trips in order to be compensated. The advantage is above all knowing that you’re not creating a profile in vain, and avoiding spending time looking for a compatible ride. Win-Win!
Three great advantages to carpooling … and an added bonus when you’re at Campus Contern!
#1 Financial savings and reduced travel costs
A significant financial bonus: share to make significant savings and improve your purchasing power.
#2 Reduce stress and strengthen social ties
Sharing promotes greater cohesion within the multi-company community. By avoiding the hassle of daily driving, carpooling helps reduce stress and promotes a better quality of life at work and outside.
#3 Reducing the ecological footprint and improving air quality
By choosing to carpool, people working on site make a direct contribution to protecting the environment. By reducing the number of cars on the road, carpooling helps cut greenhouse gas emissions and preserve air quality.
#4 THE Bonus:
At Campus Contern, employees have access to a shared car: so they can stay mobile for the unexpected or emergencies.
An unpredicted appointment? A colleague stranded? A sick child? just take the car and it’s done, even the first time: download the app, create your account in 5 minutes, book and go.
In short, car-sharing represents a major opportunity for people working on site, offering economic, social and environmental benefits.
Even taking part in just one or two trips a month can already make a significant difference. By opting for carpooling, we’re taking a step in the right direction towards a more responsible and sustainable future.
