Abstract:A large company car fleet can be undesirable for business owners from a cost and environment perspective. Instead of offering employees a lease car as the baseline, the employer could facilitate employee mobility instead. Companies with a large car fleet usually register the business related travels billing purposes. This data can also be used to discover the opportunities and expected benefit of changing the company policy offering mobility instead of cars. The travel patterns of the lease car using Capgemini employees are analysed. This information is then used to suggest alternative ways to satisfy their travel needs. The travel pattern analyses revealed that up to 8.65% of the lease car trips could have been performed using the train and up to 4.97% of the lease car trips could have been performed using a bicycle. Other alternatives for business travels are less interesting. When employee travel needs are satisfied differently in order to achieve financial benefits, 48,336 euro cost reduction per year can be achieved (cost reduction of 0.12%). When environmental benefits are pursued, the CO2 emission can be reduced by 660,075 kg per year (CO2 emission reduction of 7.93%). This study did not reveal any significant benefits for Capgemini by switching from offering lease cars to offering mobility. The majority of business trips (82.8%) still need to be performed using a lease car, regardless of the mobility policy. However, this study did reveal the beneficial effects of promoting train and bicycle usage when possible.
