To reduce the group's environmental impact, the firm has set up a series of simple and complementary measures:
- More ecological paper management, with the purchase of FSC certified paper (from sustainably managed forests), printing documents on FSC certified paper, purchase of recycled pads for internal use, printing on both sides of the paper on all printers.
- More systematic recycling and sorting for paper, glass and also batteries, printer cartridges and employee mobile phones.
- Reducing energy consumption with energy saving bulbs at our various sites and the systematic extinction of the lights during lunchtime and evening.
- Purchase of more ecological supplies using sustainable products to maintain our premises, replacing plastic cups with eco-cups and ordering recycled supplies and consumables: pens, pencils, pads, etc.
We are working on a plan to offset carbon emissions from travel.
In an urban context marked with increasingly restrictive physical and environmental constraints (congestion, pollution, regulations, rarity and cost of space), the challenges for goods logistics and mobility are considerable: business, competitive edge, jobs, quality of life...
To meet these challenges, Beijaflore has been working for the past two years with its subsidiary Headlink Partners on an innovative project labelled by the Competitive Cluster Advancity "Sutstainable City and Mobility", to launch a shared service for urban collections and deliveries and developing an Internet platform similar to a "freight stock market".
This sustainable shared urban logistics project will meet new sustainable development demands and regulations, offering a better delivery service to businesses and private customers with acceptable financial conditions. It will also help improve urban development by incorporating current and future requirements for freight mobility.
The architect of the project, Headlink Partners is responsible for co-steering and developing the business model in partnership with software editors and recognised logistics and urban mobility laboratories (Ojassp, Sqli, Deveryware, LAMIH, Laboratoire Ville Mobilité Transport, INRETS, Laboratoire d’Economie de Paris) and also companies from the distribution sector (NMPP Group).
Because of the nature of our business, we take particular care to make sure our employees have all the resources and tools they need to assimilate and move forward during their missions and with the company in general, from the recruitment process to achieving their professional project.
An integration seminar, consultant sponsorship and a Welcome Pack facilitate their first few months with the company and allow the newcomers to make their mark within the company.
Then at the client's premises or our offices, permanent access to information is assured via our intranet, wherever the consultant may be, the group's regular in-house newsletter, specific newsletters from our subsidiary and also formal and informal meetings with teams and the Group as a whole.
This culture of sharing that characterises our organisation is an essential element for improving and increasing employee expertise. Sharing knowledge and experience is part of a structured and targeted programme. The existence of specific knowledge management structures and the programming of many training courses allows each employee to build and consolidate a professional career according to the skills and projects discussed with their career manager.
