Intesa Sanpaolo confirmed its commitment to the issue of sustainable mobility in 2015 as well, seeking and proposing solutions for people’s mobility needs. Commitment continues with regard to implementation of the Home-Work Commuting Plans, which, apart from the regulatory requirements, represent a significant opportunity for organisational improvement and management of the personnel mobility.
The most significant actions carried out in 2015 regarded the following:
- the increase in the number of partnerships with local public transport companies, also extended to Trenord for Milan and currently being defined with Atac in Rome;
- the monitoring of the use of shuttles, a fundamental tool for collecting data on their actual use and consequently evaluating initiatives to promote their use or, alternatively, modify routes and times;
- the launch, thanks to the collaboration with the Intesa Sanpaolo Employees’ Association (ALI), of a partnership with the car sharing service Car2go to facilitate public mobility in the cities of Milan, Florence and Rome; the National Convention from 1 January 2016 with BICInCittà, a Bike sharing operator active in Turin, with [TO]Bike, and in many other Italian cities such as Cuneo, Como, Lecco, Treviso, Padua, Venice, La Spezia, Carrara and Rimini; the granting of contributions to the expenditure on subscription to bike sharing and subscriptions to public transport made on the Mobility Office enterprise platform;
- the constant monitoring of the data relative to the model used to report the Corporate Mobility environmental sustainability indicators for Italy and abroad;
- the launching of a first phase for the realization of a preliminary feasibility study on the management system for road safety in accordance with Standard ISO 39001 - Road Traffic Safety Management System.
With regard to the mobility measures launched by the international subsidiaries, corporate bike sharing is active in four banks (Intesa Sanpaolo Bank Romania, CIB Bank, Banka Koper and Intesa Sanpaolo Bank Albania) and in nine cities - Arad, Bucharest, Budapest, Koper, Debrecen, Isola, Ljubljana, Pécs and Tirana. Moreover, in the case of CIB Bank and PBZ, areas equipped with dressing rooms have been allocated, where employees who arrive by bicycle can change and, if necessary, take a shower. In other three banks, where bike sharing is not active, specific areas have been reserved for the parking of employees’ bicycles (Banca Intesa Russia, Privredna Banka Zagreb and VÚB Banka). Finally PBZ and CIB Bank have launched initiatives to promote cycling among employees; in particular, CIB Bank has joined the initiative 'Bike to Work' with a participation of more than 150 employees: at CIB Bank 5,149 km worth approximately 1 tonne of CO2 saved were cycled.
Company cars improved too: Banca Intesa Beograd, Banka Koper and Intesa Sanpaolo Bank Albania have a car fleet made up of less polluting models while CIB Bank has launched a pilot project for the online booking service of company cars in order to optimize their use and related consumption.
