Sustainable Mobility Report 2018
Moving together towards a better tomorrow
At Kayentis, we recognize that we all play a part in ensuring each other’s well-being and reducing our negative impact on the environment. We also recognize that we are still young and in a relatively good spot for developing our company’s CSR policy (though we think it’s never too late to start!)
Kayentis has seen a lot of growth in the past few years, and growth inevitably comes with changes in company infrastructure. This has presented us with an opportunity to re-evaluate our work practices and their impact on the environment, our society, and each other, and we are excited to announce that we have made some great changes!
At Kayentis, we now have a CSR team committed to developing responsible work practices. Our three main goals in creating this team are to:
- Reduce our negative environmental impact
- Best support employee health and well-being
- Give back to our community
Our employees’ mobility patterns, i.e. how we get around, are a key factor in all three of these target areas of development, so we have decided to start by improving how we move locally: creation of a bike park, bike repair kit with a dedicated team, charging stations for electronic cars, putting Kayentis on the transit map…
In addition to all of these actions, part of the CSR team’s plan included signing up for a regional mobility challenge, “the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Mobility Challenge”. We wanted to test objectively – there are a lot of scientists among us, after all – the effectiveness of our work, and we competed with other mid-size companies.
It went well; we placed second in our category!
Together we were able to significantly decrease our use of polluting transportation by encouraging walking, biking, ridesharing, and the use of electric cars, and most importantly we did it in a way that our staff enjoy and feel safe using.
