Secure E-Post Saves Costs and Increases Employee Productivity

As we’re heading for 1 billion Facebook users, and 188 billion e-mails and 340 million tweets are sent around the globe each day, you can’t deny the ever increasing need for communication, which creates opportunities for innovation. Organisations that are capable of engaging their employees with business ideas that make life easier, realise more than just a high score on their quarterly employee satisfaction monitor.

Sustainable strategy in logistics: Compass offers opportunities

Recently, the Clean Fleet program was launched in the US: a public-private collaboration, initiated by the Obama administration aimed at reducing the fuel consumption of large American companies. Making use of electric vehicles, alternative fuels and fuel-efficient measures, large companies such as Coca-Cola, Enterprise Holdings, Staples, General Electric, Ryder, and Osram plan to accelerate their sustainability efforts. The program contributes to the government’s target of importing a third less oil by 2025.

Electric toys for boys are changing the market

There was a time that the A6, 5-series and E-class were shining on the reserved parking spot for the CEO. Is this still the case or not? In spite of some exceptions, many CEO’s find it hard to get rid of their expensive, fuel inefficient cars. However, corporate managers are more and more experiencing the benefits of electric transportation.

Electric Vehicles in the Sixth Gear

Electric vehicles are a growing industry. The Dutch prince Maurits is promoting electric cars together with the Formula E-team. Large automotive companies such as Renault, Nissan and Tesla are delivering electric cars on a large scale and this makes sustainable mobility more tangible for consumers, public and private sector.

Sustainable mobility as business strategy

Why is it that employees are not allowed to work at home? Some work activities cannot be done at home, but other activities can. 13% of the Dutch employees indicate that they prefer to work at home, while 81% of these people are not allowed to by their bosses!

Sustainable Mobility is on the move

If 66% of the people in the Netherlands are interested in driving an electric vehicle, why don’t we see them drive one? The most important reason for this is the number of electric cars on the market: they are there, but in really small numbers. Besides that, an average household of 2,2 persons with a yearly income of 30.000 Euro per year is not interested in a trendy and expensive two-seater.

What will sustainable commuting look like in the Netherlands?

In order to gain more information on consumer behavior in relation to sustainable mobility, Finch & Beak and GFK Panel Services Benelux started a continuous research on this subject. By monitoring this behavior every six months, more information is generated on the sustainable who, what, where and why of the people in the Netherlands. The research does not focus solely on the various types of fuel, but includes also subjects such as new working behavior. In the first research, which starts in October, the following companies will participate: Opel, VW, Toyota, DELTA Energy and Rijkswaterstaat.

The state of the Dutch motorways in 2028: ways to the future

Within the innovation programme ‘Ways to the future’, Rijkswaterstaat, the Dutch governmental organisation for maintaining and developing the motor ways, wants to involve the Dutch public at the design of the roads: what do road users and people who live near motor ways find important? “You have to find out what matters to your stakeholders”, says project leader Wil René Jansen. “Together with Finch & Beak, we conducted research to answer this question. We deliberately have chosen to work with an external consultancy in order to be able to think outside the box.” With the help of Finch & Beak, Rijkswaterstaat started a dialog with its external stakeholders, such as professionals, civil servants and citizens to identify their wishes and demands for now and for the future.
