May 2015, InnoVista Sensors Valence launched the MyBike@InnoVistaSensors program with the aim of giving employees an alternative, non-polluting means of transport for short trips. 2016 confirmed the success of this scheme. Results show that employees used them all year round with a peak in July. Helped by good weather, users were lucky enough to go on riding into late Autumn.
Thomas Stemmelen, Project Manager, shared with us: “It is a great initiative from our company to have these bikes available… I use them to get home every time there’s good weather… and In Valence we are very lucky! I use them because I enjoy the exercise but I also love the fact that it enables me to help the environment and reduce pollution. The good thing is, I also avoid traffic jams which are very common during rush hours… I wish more companies offered that service to their employees…”With the move of the administrative functions to a new building on the Lautagne business park, the need for more bikes was confirmed. Three more bikes are now available to replace employees’ short automobile trips by environment-friendly and healthier solutions. We want to thank all participants who have already changed their transportation habits and are participating in reducing the impact on the planet. Employees’ commitment is driving us to other environment-friendly initiatives such as electric bikes to help employees climb the hill to our new eco-designed offices!
