Corporate travel plan

As a company with over one hundred employees, BRRC is legally required to respond every second year to a federal survey on the daily home-to-work/work-to-home commuting habits of its entire staff. Beyond this legal obligation, as part of a sustainable management policy for both home-to-work/work-to-home commuting and business travel BRRC has developed a corporate travel plan (CTP) for each of its three offices (Sterrebeek, Wavre, and Woluwe).
In addition to the “sustainability” objective that is the leading principle for the 21st century, this plan addresses more general objectives such as reducing travel costs, improving the quality and safety of daily travel, etc.
Through this effort, the Mobility – Safety – Road Management Division has gained expertise of the various tools and methodologies required for the implementation of a CTP. This experience is now put at the disposal of companies willing to implement such a plan.
