Sustainable Mobility Strategy
Our sustainable mobility strategy is based on two main axes. Firstly, to encourage a modal change and the rational and safe use of transport by employees and secondly, to promote and encourage the electrification of transport.
Promotion of a modal change and the rational and safe use of transport
The aim of this axis is to raise awareness among our employees in order to reduce the need for transport and promote the use of sustainable means of transport. The lines of action include the following:
- Encouraging people to work away from the office.
- Enabling flexible working hours such as working straight through the day with no break.
- Promoting means of transport other than private vehicles, through the following programmes:
- Car pool service: We have a pool of electric vehicles in the main headquarters so that employees can use them in their work activities. This contributes to saving fuel and reducing emissions. 2022 the vehicles were used for a total of 19,000km, making a total of 400,000 km since the service was launched in 2016.
- Shared corporate taxi service: We are undertaking comprehensive management of corporate transport by taxi, with a view to reducing emissions, contributing to sustainable and safe mobility and increasing the digitalisation and traceability of the service, prioritising shared journeys between users, and which are also made using environmentally-friendly taxis. Last year, 72% of the kilometres were travelled using ECO vehicles, and 38% of passengers shared service.
- Two-wheel mobility service: We also have a pool of electric bicycles and electric scooters available for employees at the main headquarters for work-related purposes and to promote the use of this type of alternative mobility. Since its launch in 2019 and until the shutdown in 2020 due to the pandemic, more than 25,500km were covered by bicycle and more than 8,500 by scooter. In 2022 we worked on reactivation looking forward to 2023.
- Transport card.
Promotion of the electrification of transport
This second axis promotes the electrification of transport, and where cars need to be used, they should cause as little pollution as possible. The main lines of action are as follows:
- Sustainable fleet management. We are continuing with the electrification and optimisation of our combustion-engine vehicles by increasing the number of hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles. Currently, only 56% of the fleet consists of combustion-engine vehicles, with the aim of reducing this to 20% by 2024.
- Promotion of the electric vehicle for employees:
- Development of electric mobility plans for employees.
- Boosting the electrification of the managers' fleet: We increased the quota they receive for renting and provided a charging infrastructure at the headquarters. Where a traditional combustion-engine vehicle is still chosen, we limit their CO2 emissions, with restrictions that are stricter than those imposed under the European guidelines. This currently accounts for 11% of the total fleet, with 224 vehicles. Of these, 16% are fully electric, while 74% are plug-in hybrids.
- Elecctrification of car parks: We have reinforced the charging infrastructure at Endesa's administrative offices for the electric vehicles in its fleet. Last year, 886 charging stations were installed, in addition to the 900 installed in 2021.
In addition to this, other lines of action have been undertaken, including the development of local transport plans in the territories where the company operates and an internal communication plan.
We are proud of the result of our sustainable mobility strategy and this shows that we need to continue with our commitment to mobility based on changing how we use transport and on electrification.
