Priority for trains
Business travel accounts for the lion’s share of BayernLB's carbon footprint. Reducing travel-related emissions is therefore particularly important. Before they travel, employees are obliged to check the CO2 emissions generated by their journey and to consider possible alternatives – especially for travel that is not client-related. In principle, they should take the train for any destination that can be reached by train in less than 3.5 hours.
Sustainable driving with car sharing and electric cars
Employees can also register free of charge with car sharing providers that have fleets which include electric cars in order to make environmentally-compatible journeys to destinations that are not easily accessible by train. Guests and visitors to BayernLB can use the “Umwelttaxi München” service to book a hybrid or electric taxi.
Video and telephone conferences instead of travel
To give employees more opportunities to stay in “A”, even if they want to talk to colleagues or clients in “B”, BayernLB has invested in the latest technical infrastructure for video and telephone conferences.
Sustainable travel to the office
To enable employees to make an eco-friendly journey to work, BayernLB offers all staff discounted job tickets for travel on public transport. A bike station has also been established at the Munich site, with parking spaces for 220 bicycles. The underground car park at BayernLB has charging stations for electric cars, which are available free of charge.
