CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AT THE HEART OF ARVAL’S STRATEGY REWARDED BY ECOVADIS GOLD RATING
Arval, a global leader in full service vehicle leasing and mobility solutions, has been awarded the gold recognition level on the EcoVadis* Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) platform, rating it among the top 2% best companies in the "Renting and leasing of motor vehicles” industry.
In 2019, Arval scored 70/100, a gain of two points compared to 2018. For the 4th year in a row, this recognition highlights Arval’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, which is at the heart of Arval’s strategy.
We are living at a time when fundamental topics for the future are rapidly taking shape. Mobility – which is at the core of what Arval provides to its customers – has an impact on many of today’s key societal and ecological challenges, including environment protection, congestion and accessibility, the future of cities and quality of life. Arval helps its clients succeed in their energy transition by offering sustainable mobility solutions.
“CSR is not an option neither a duty, but it is part of Arval’s DNA. At Arval, we are convinced that being proactive is an essential part of our approach. With more than 1 million cars on the roads, as many drivers behind the wheel and billions of kilometres travelled every year, least we can say is that we have a say in energy transition, road safety, congestion, urbanisation and greener mobility”, Alain Van Groenendael, Arval Chairman and CEO.
