A new Travel Plan for Prince's Government staff ready to encourage Soft Mobility.

According to a recent technical report by ENEA, the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development, held in February 2023, the increase in remote working caused a strong reduction in urban areas of the most relevant greenhouse gases and air pollutants like nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide and ultra-thin Pm10 and Pm2.5 atmospheric particulates. The reason for this mostly depended on the lower use of private transport, notably cars and motorcycles. Home-work transport can therefore improve the city footprint.

The Gouvernement Princier (Prince's Government) strongly believes in this and, on the 25th June 2024, it organised a first-step operational meeting to build up a travel plan to promote Soft Mobility (= environmentally-friendly modes of transport) for its agents.

Monaco's Governmental Administration is willing to set a sustainable example by implementing good practices to reduce the environmental impacts in view to reduce by 55% greenhouse gas emissions produced in Monaco by 2030 (compared to 1990 emissions) and, finally, reach the Country carbon neutrality by 2050.

The Princely Government started debating on possible solutions to reduce the impact of home-work commuting involving a group of specialised companies: EGIS - leading global consulting, construction engineering and operating firm, EKODEV - Corporate Social Responsibility and Climate Consulting, and FATEC - first independent manager of vehicle fleets in France.

The peer review panel aims at developing a new Travel Plan for Government staff within the Monaco Mobility Plan, launched in the 1st quarter 2024 action plan, and the Pacte National pour la Transition Energétique de l’Administration (National Pact for the Energy Transition of the Administration).

Adopting fully sustainable modes of transport while reducing travel time and transportation costs by 2025 are the core missions of the team group with the contribution of a panel of 3,451 agents and officials of the State. ***
