How did we implement the Mobility Plan?

The first thing we wanted to do when we considered implementing improvements in the area of mobility was to calculate the impact of our activities. Elmubas Petfoodgroup produces and distributes pet food on 5 continents – around 144,000 tonnes per year – and offers comprehensive advice on the production of customer branded products.

The exceptional human team that has helped us become a leader in our sector over 30 years of history is now made up of 227 people (117 men and 110 women) who work in 3 different shifts and 5 different processes: office, packaging, maintenance, extrusion and loading.

Each person’s travel generates an average of 1.05 tonnes of CO2, or 239 tonnes per year.

Once this calculation had been made, we carried out a mobility diagnosis, always in collaboration with Sinnple, which allowed us to understand where people travelled from, by what means and what constraints there were in the company (location, shifts, etc.).

We conducted a survey among our employees, asking them about their commuting habits. The results were enlightening.

72 people (representing 32% of the workforce) completed the survey, and all areas were included, making it a good representation of the different municipal areas.

These were the first results:

  • 89% travel in their car with no other passengers.
  • 7% carpool.
  • 2.7% walk or cycle.
  • 1.3% use public transport.
  • 3% have a hybrid car.
  • Among people living closer to home, the percentage of people travelling alone by car is slightly higher and vice versa.
  • Among those who come from further away, 13% do so by carpooling.
