Initiatives for Eco-mobility

Marek Andruchów Head of Administration at BNP Paribas Bank Polska SA

For several years, Bank BNP Paribas has been adding hybrid cars to the bank's car fleet, thus reducing harmful emissions. We gradually supply our employees with modern hybrid cars. In 2019, in response to employee expectations, we added fully electric cars to the fleet. They are at the disposal of employees who need to travel between our Warsaw offices. Thanks to the newly built fast-charging stations, the cars are always ready for use.

Safe Driving Academy

Since 2017 we have organised training devoted to safe and ecological driving for all users of company cars. Employees who do not use company cars can participate in monthly competitions regarding safe driving and traffic law. The main prize is all-day Academy training. The initiative results in a reduced number of claims. At the same time, it increases eco-awareness on the road, and above all the safety of employees who use company cars.

The Safe Driving Academy is made up of the most experienced instructors in Poland. Adrenaline and fun, but also safety and learning to control the car in extreme situations are guaranteed elements of training. A team of professional instructors (including sports drivers) supervises employees during training.

In 2019, Safe Driving Academy:

  • trained over 200 people,
  • was held at 3 new locations – Krakow, Warsaw and Poznań (due to growing demand),
  • included the organisation of additional lectures and inspirational workshops for 300 employees during CSR Days. Participants verified their skills on simulators.


Within the Carpooling program, employees can drive to work together. Thus, they reduce air pollution, save money (fuel costs are shared) and time. In addition, traveling together creates opportunities to make new friends and get to know colleagues better.


The service was introduced in 2018 and is dedicated to employees of selected sales network branches. It is the equivalent of a company car for individual employees. The positive experience of renting a car for hours or even minutes while maintaining mobility and safety has resulted in the extension of the service to many locations in the country.


carsharing trips


total kilometres travelled

The program contributes to the reduction of traffic during rush hour: one carsharing vehicle can replace between 8 and 20 private cars. In addition, the compact size of the cars makes it easier to park in the urban environment. State-of-the-art engines allow for dynamic driving while maintaining low fuel consumption and low CO 2 emissions.

Cycling to work

The popularisation of bicycles as an ecological means of everyday transport has become a permanent element of promoting eco-transport at the Bank. At our headquarters, employees have access to secure bicycle parking lots and showers. We also provided our employees and clients with bicycle stands, which have been installed in front of most branches.

In 2019, we organised a series of informative workshops for employees who commute to work by bike. We built their motivation for cycling as a means of improving health and protecting the environment.

To conserve resources and respect the natural environment, we also promote responsible business trip planning, the availability of teleconferencing and video conferencing, as well as limiting training trips by conducting e-learning.

The increase in the number of kilometres travelled on business trips in 2019 is related to the increase in the number of employees by 29%. The latter resulted from the Bank merger after the acquisition of the core business of Raiffeisen Bank Polska. At the same time, business travel per employee is 0.3% lower than in 2018 (per FTE).

  • In 2019, gasoline consumption increased by 386,117 litres compared to 2018.
