Environmental issues take center stage at the Travel Conference! 

July 12, 2023
At the initiative of the Global Travel Business Line (BL), a global internal conference was organized on April 26 at Saint-Denis. This meeting brought together more than 90 people representing all the functions contributing to the development of this activity. Two hours were devoted to ESG (Environment, Societal, Governance)

An international Climate Fresk at Wilo!

Perhaps you have already heard about it? The Climate Fresk is a collaborative workshop where participants reflect on the mechanisms of climate deregulation. 

On April 25, 11 travel conference attendees volunteered to experience the Climate Fresk with energy and enthusiasm. Some of their original ideas for reducing the carbon footprint linked to travel: setting up incentive fares according to the duration of the trip to discourage “short journeys” by plane or creating a carbon tracker to measure our carbon footprint from the same way we count our steps. Congratulations to them!

“The Climate Fresk workshop seems to me to be an excellent opportunity to become aware of the consequences of climate change. We had a good time with colleagues and came out of it better informed and aware of challenges. I particularly appreciated the dynamism of the animation. A workshop that I recommend to everyone!” – Dabhia Ouaksel, EA France
