Skipr and Deloitte partner up for a greener and more flexible mobility
Deloitte joins forces with the Brussels-based alternative mobility start-up Skipr to advance sustainable mobility. Skipr offers employees a variety of flexible mobility options for their commute to work. For Deloitte, empowering employees to embrace multimodal and sustainable mobility is another step forward toward becoming carbon neutral in 2030.
Since the start of Deloitte’s pioneering mobility programme, more than half of its 4,577 employees have opted for more sustainable mobility. To encourage its people to make a thoughtful mobility choice, and ensure that they can seamlessly pick the options that best fit their needs, Deloitte has introduced Skipr. It offers employees a complete mobility solution that allows them to explore different options such as public or shared transport (cars, e-scooters, bikes, e-steps), all through a centralised platform consisting of an app and a mobility payment card.
Carbon neutral by 2030
Deloitte’s collaboration with Skipr and the organisation’s focus on sustainable mobility fit with Deloitte's ambition to become carbon neutral by 2030. Almost 10% of the organisation’s car fleet today consists of electric vehicles, with the aim of having an entirely electric fleet by 2030. To stimulate the choice for electric cars, the firm also invests in charging infrastructure. There are already 218 charging stations installed at Deloitte’s offices in Zaventem and another 308 charging stations spread across local offices across Belgium.
Thanks to its collaboration with Skipr, Deloitte wants to further encourage its people to explore the different sustainable and multimodal options available for commutes today.
Piet Vandendriessche, CEO of Deloitte Belgium:
Our collaboration with Skipr fits with Deloitte’s sustainability strategy. Thanks to innovative start-ups such as Skipr, making use of different mobility options is becoming increasingly easy. With the gradual return to the office in mind, we want to stimulate our people to mix and match green transport options as they travel to and from work. In addition to our investments in electric vehicles and other sustainability initiatives, we can drastically reduce our CO2 emissions and take another step forward toward a carbon neutral Deloitte in 2030.
Skipr has seen a drastic increase in interest from companies in green and multimodal mobility over the past years. Thanks to its collaboration with Deloitte, the start-up now counts 100 clients, an important milestone. Skipr offers its clients a complete mobility solution that can also be linked to all personnel and payroll tools, fully centralising an organisation’s HR and mobility framework. The concept saves companies the administrative burden of dealing with traditional corporate mobility and seamlessly integrates among other the mobility budget.
Companies are increasingly realising that they have an important responsibility when it comes to the mobility of their employees. We see a strong momentum in the market and have the perfect solution to offer businesses looking to optimise their mobility offering. Reaching 100 clients marks the beginning of a next chapter for Skipr, as we will continue to expand and help more and more companies achieve their sustainability and carbon emission goals.
concluded Mathieu de Lophem, CEO of Skipr.
