Just what is a Plan de Déplacement Entreprise(PDE) or Company travel plan?

A PDE is a series of measures designed to optimize staff travel by encouraging the use of transport alternatives to the passenger car.

The Air France PDE in the Greater Paris region aims to minimize the use of passenger cars by staff commuting to and from work and is in line with the Company’s ambitions to set the example when it comes to Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility.

Launched at the end of 2007, the Air France PDE company travel plan, dubbed BOUSSOLE (for “BOUgeonS SOLidairEs”), was based on an audit of travel arrangements by some 50,000 employees in the Greater Paris region, and the subsequent plan of action recommending a number of measures to achieve the ambitious objective of cutting the use of passenger cars by 10% by 2012.

Focus on the Paris-CDG Inter-company Travel Plan

Air France and four other companies, with the backing of the Versailles Chamber of Commerce, have created R’Promobilité, the first PDIE* in the Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport catchment area.

With the backing of the Versailles Val-d’Oise/YvelinesChamber of Commerce, five companies have set up the first Plan de Déplacement Inter-Entreprisesor Intercompany travel plan (PDIE) for the Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport catchment area.

The companies (Aéroports de Paris, Air France, CIF Keolis, FedEx Express,and the La PosteGroup) committed to this collective program in March 2010 and signed their joint R’Promobilitécharter on 7 April 2011.

The signatory companies represent around 50% of the people working on the Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport platform. 
The sector constitutes a very bustling, multimodal region where mobility is perceived as a primordial quality for the development of public and private space, employee and passenger well-being, and business competitiveness. 

The R’PromobilitéPDIE for the Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport catchment area is designed to improve access conditions to the various sites for staff, customers, and suppliers alike.

The group of partners has pooled its energies in a common, 5-pronged plan of action:

  • Develop resource sharing among companies,
  • Make public transport more attractive,
  • Minimize unnecessary, less important travel,
  • Increase opportunities for using “soft” travel modes,
  • Develop more environmentally-friendly use of passenger cars.

These objectives are designed to improve access to the Paris-CDG airport catchment area and the mobility of all staff working there.
