A strong commitment for ArvalSome fields are mandatory
Interview of Philippe Noubel, Deputy Managing Director
Beyond its business, Arval’s commitment to Sustainable Development is a key point in your strategy. How is it demonstrated?
Philippe Noubel - Perfectly in line with BNP Paribas’ approach, it aims to be civic, economical, environment-friendly… and active. Shared with our clients, it is demonstrated in different ways and we never lose sight of its use by way of simple rules, rules of driving behaviour, fuel consumption, reduction of the greenhouse gas effect and rules for proper use of vehicles.
We have begun to apply them ourselves before formalising them to have them adopted by our customers. Our adviser role is quite effective in this area.
Safety is one of the theme of Sustainable Development, thus calling on constant vigilance in order to reach an effective level of prevention. Our awareness campaigns have been bearing fruit and customers have decided to follow our course.
At the same time, Arval has taken on a commitment of a highly human dimension through actions in favour of the disabled. In many countries, we lend our support and assistance to a large number of associations. Sustainable Development is a long-term commitment. We know that the stakes involved in such an approach will take time. In this area, Arval’s will to succeed will not falter!
