In addition, initiatives have been taken for years to encourage healthy and sustainable commuting. The company bicycle was introduced back in 2010, and since 2017 Savaco employees have received a bicycle allowance per kilometre travelled by bicycle to and from work. Savaco's Bike App, developed in-house, nicely keeps track of all cycling data. In 2019, Savaco introduced a bicycle leasing system. This allows employees to cycle to work in an economical way with an appropriate bike for their commuting distance (electric, speed pedelec,...). And the concept is catching on, as more and more Savaco employees subscribe to this programme.
Working from home
Finally, employees are given the opportunity to work from home on a regular basis. This not only reclaims the time our employees would otherwise spend on the road, it also offers a positive contribution to the environment.
