What is sustainable mobility?
By sustainable mobility, we mean a future-proof mode of transportation, where our trips do not affect the environment and cause less and less CO2 emissions.
27% of all CO2 emissions come from our travel, more than half of which can be related to business mobility. So here is a great opportunity to make the world a little better.
The goals of the Dutch government and the European Union are ambitious:
- The Netherlands wants to reduce CO2 emissions by 49% below 1990 levels by 2030
- The European Union wants 60% fewer emissions from transport by 2050
- All this while the number of transport movements continues to grow.
4 Examples of sustainable mobility
Choose the bicycle instead of the car!
Over 50% of all car trips are shorter than 7.5 kilometers, a distance that is better covered by bicycle. Because faster, nicer, cheaper and of course much more sustainable!
In many cases, public transport is an excellent or even better alternative than the car. OV bikes allow you to travel quickly from door to door and you save parking costs and aggravation.
In addition, it is possible to work on the train and travel time is not necessarily lost time.
Carpooling indirectly reduces congestion; after all, a car is still driving. But when you are with 4 people in the car who otherwise each drive their own car, that makes a 75% difference.
In addition, it is pleasant and you can save time by doing work meetings in the car instead of in the office.
Work from home!
Prevention is better than cure. Not traveling, of course, is more sustainable than traveling. In addition, consider how much time you save by not traveling.
Employers will no longer be allowed to pay a fixed, untaxed travel allowance as of Jan. 1, 2022; only trips actually made and home office days are eligible for untaxed reimbursement. The burden of proof and obligation to keep records lies with the employer, but this obligation can also lead to a lot of extra administration for employees. More info from the tax authorities can be found in the Payroll Tax Handbook 2023 (NL).
Being an appealing employer is crucial in these times of unprecedented tightness in the labor market. Offering a mobility policy that gives employees maximum flexibility and freedom of choice contributes to this. Also, recently published research shows that more than 65% of young Dutch people consider the climate impact of employers an important factor when looking for a job.
