At Arval, we take our responsibilities seriously. Whether that’s supporting our people, lending a helping hand in the communities where we live and work, doing all we can to make our customers’ lives easier, educating young people or helping to tackle climate change. And with all the challenges that 2020 had in store for us, these things are now more important than ever before.
That’s why Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a vital part of our business and we’re extremely proud of the positive contribution we make. Our CSR work is split into four key areas: The Economy, Our Community, Our People and The Environment. And, as part of the BNP Paribas Group, we also support the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals - the blueprint to achieving a more sustainable future for everyone.
We don’t usually like to blow our own trumpet. But because we’re proud of our achievements, when it comes to CSR, we’re happy to shout about it from the rooftops! So here are just a few examples of what we’ve been up to in 2019 and 2020…
Watch our video about our company purpose and what that means in terms of our mission and ethics
Arval is fully committed to operating in an economically ethical way. To support energy transition, we focus on developing sustainable products, services and tools for our customers that will help them to make better decisions when it comes to assessing their own environmental impact.
We’re great believers in giving something back and making a positive impact in our communities - and our people are always ready, willing and able to get involved. That’s why we support a whole host of good causes through community education programmes, fundraising and volunteering.
We know that the success of our company depends on our people. We want to attract the right mix of skills, talent and diversity, create a healthy and safe working environment and provide our employees with all of the opportunities, training and motivation they need to be the best that they can be.
We take our ISO 14001 environmental accreditation very seriously, setting targets to reduce the impact of our business on the environment. We’re always looking at ways we can reduce, reuse, recycle and minimise our carbon footprint, as well as helping our customers on the energy transition.
We offer hybrid, plug-in hybrid and fully electric vehicles so that our customers, their drivers and our employees can choose vehicles that limit their environmental impact whilst still meeting their needs. We’ve seen a rapid increase in the number of alternatively fuelled vehicles being adopted by fleets and drivers alike, all helping to lessen the impact on the environment. In fact, the number of customer orders for electric vehicles in 2020 increased by over 380% compared to 2019, as the energy transition and our role in it really moved up a gear.
As the old saying goes, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. So, here are just a few examples of how we made a difference last year. Click the download button below to view the infographic. For our 2018 summary, click here.
We’re part of the BNP Paribas Group, which means we’re proud to play a key role in supporting the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals that are the blueprint to achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. The Goals work together to address the wide range of global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.
