In 2016, we incorporated the first electric vehicles into our fleet and set up e-charging stations on the ProSiebenSat.1 Campus in Unterföhring. The cars are charged with certified hydroelectricity and can be used by our employees. In addition, the Group negotiated master agreements with car-sharing providers. This gives our employees the opportunity to register, for free, for the more environmentally friendly alternative to their own cars and to use this service both for business travel and private trips. Our Group business travel policy requires ProSiebenSat.1 employees to eschew flights for shorter distances and to use more environmentally friendly alternatives like trains. As of 2017, for example, no flights are generally allowed to be taken from Munich to Frankfurt and back. In addition, when traveling long distances with Deutsche Bahn, our employees use electricity from renewable energy sources and are thus 100% carbon neutral on the way. [GRI 103-2]

Commuting [GRI 103-3]
The commuting habits of ProSiebenSat.1 employees have a significant influence on our carbon footprint. An “Employee Commuting” survey is carried out in Germany, Austria and Switzerland every year; around 1,000 employees (previous year: around 1,300) took part in the survey in 2017. The analysis of the results showed that an average ProSiebenSat.1 Group employee travels around 10,200 km per year (previous year: 9,500 km) on the way to and from work. More than half of the workforce (2017: 65%; 2016: 61%) makes use of public transport as an environmentally friendly alternative to the car.
