After the Safety Week, which was held from 14 to 18 June 2021, Keolis has honored innovative actions developed in the past months by its subsidiaries to improve the health, safety and security of its passengers and collaborators. Beyond these prices rewarding the teams, this first-of-its-kind in the Group enables the company to highlight and share good practices so they can be used in the networks in the 15 countries where Keolis is present.
In spring 2020, Keolis launched an initiative aimed at suppliers with whom the Group has a minimum annual turnover of €100,000, to encourage them to participate in reforestation projects and to take part in the creation of a virtuous circle to promote ecology and the restoration of biodiversity.
The suppliers commit to planting trees in proportion to their turnover through a "carbon contribution" clause included in their contracts with the Group. Since the project was launched, more than 4,300 trees have been planted. This initiative is rooted in Keolis Group’s global commitment to sustainable purchasing which has been in place for a number of years, which involves incorporating specific clauses into the contracts set up by the Purchasing Department encouraging suppliers to respect Keolis' environmental commitments.
As part of its corporate social responsibility policy, Keolis is committed to diversity and inclusion by recruiting candidates with varied profiles. This commitment allows everyone to have a place within the Group, to have access to a permanent job and to be a player in their professional career.
