From 14 to 18 June 2021, Keolis subsidiaries around the world are showcasing the Group’s commitment to ensuring the health, safety and security of its staff, passengers and the public.
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.
Keolis is a headline partner of the sixth edition of the Autonomy exhibition, which, as in 2020, will be held in a 100% virtual format.
