Parking a car in the office is becoming increasingly difficult due to climate targets

Parking a car in the office is becoming increasingly difficult due to climate targets

Anders Reizen is a partnership of approximately 70 large companies and governments in the Netherlands (including NS, Shell, Unilever, KPN, provinces). The foundation is looking for the best way to halve CO2 emissions from business travel (including commuting) by 2030.

“Sweet and sour should be served together,” she explains.

“The Port of Rotterdam Authority is a good example of this. They have stopped renting out parking spaces for employees. If you want to park your car next to the office, you have to pay for it yourself. But on the other hand, the free public transport card.” Eneco also offers its employees an OV chip card.

Profitable bicycle kilometers

Other companies, such as water company Vitens, offer people who go to work by bicycle twice as many kilometers as people who come by car. However, there is always a large group of people who claim that they cannot do without a car.

“We can’t bring in people who work late at night and on public transport at night,” says Houppermans. “But someone could just use the excuse that they live in a remote area and have them go to a station where they can park and then continue their journey on public transport.”
