To work by bike

On Friday, June 2nd, everyone who came to work by bike was treated to a healthy breakfast. But even non-cyclists who wanted to test the latest electric bikes on a closed circuit signed up. Together with B2Bike, partner of the bike leasing plan, Gosselin tries to convince colleagues to pedal to work occasionally. In total, there were 109 participants.

Fiets leaseplan

Gosselin aims to achieve the "sports company" label created by Sport Flanders by 2023. Emphasizing more on physical activity and getting as many colleagues to exercise as possible is the message. The first edition of the "bike to work" event fits within this larger initiative.

There are still sports initiatives in the pipeline, but besides that, Gosselin also encourages employees to participate in various sporting events outside office hours. Investing in the health of employees is an investment that pays off easily. People feel fit and healthy, experience less stress, and are therefore more productive.

Requirements

 At Gosselin, you must have been employed for at least six months before qualifying for the lease plan, and you must cover 20% of your commuting with the purchased bike. Wearing a helmet and a fluorescent vest is mandatory, and you also receive a maintenance budget and insurance on top of that.

Thanks to a solar panel installation of 1.5 MW from ENGIE, Gosselin is becoming a more sustainable logistics player

ENGIE installed a 1.5 MW solar panel installation at the Gosselin site in Antwerp. This installation of more than 3,000 solar panels will allow them to reduce their CO2 emissions by 535 tons per year, equivalent to the annual emissions of 268 diesel cars.Gosselin currently launched a new trial project combining the usual road transport with train groupage in Europe. It is the perfect combination between handling large volumes, less reloads, less damage risks, and focusing on sustainability at the same time.

A short walk outdoors every afternoon

Stepping outside to stretch your legs in the afternoon. It sounds almost impossible in Deurne, but Hank Guns has been doing it for over 20 years, discovering some surprising routes along the way. He's a fan of the initiative at Gosselin to focus more on movement and gladly shares his walks with colleagues.
