From driving purpose to a drive to action: RATP Group’s CSR policy

“Committed every day to better city living”: this is RATP Group’s driving purpose.

For a long time, the Group’s strategy has included a focus on collective interest and accounting for the social and environmental challenges related to its activity. These focus areas were added to the strategic directions set by RATP Group’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, who signed a new CSR policy in June 2023.

Meeting challenges at every level
For passengers and city residents
Add a variety of transport modes which provide more flexibility. In addition, soft mobility contributes to making residents more active. Furthermore, the housing offer is essential to better city living.
For cities
New transport modes create jobs. In terms of logistics, solve the issue of the last mile, which contributes to reducing congestion.
For employees
The new rolling stock improves work conditions: less vibration and noise, and a healthier environment.
For the environment
Soft mobility modes don’t produce greenhouse gas. Therefore, they contribute to meeting the target set by the Paris agreement: limit global warming to 1.5°C.

Three main cross-cutting focus areas applied across the Group

RATP Group’s Strategy & Sustainable Cities Division leads the CSR policy. Each Group entity is responsible for applying the CSR commitments at their level.

First focus: Be a major player in mobility and sustainable cities

As an expert in public transport, RATP Group invests in many systems to ensure that its clients experience smooth journeys. Its objective is to make passengers’ lives easier every day by offering a high-quality, safe, accessible and sustainable transport service. To that effect, the Group contributes to revitalising regions and accelerating cities’ ecological transitions.

6,7 M journeys made in the Île-de-France region in 2022 on new mobility modes
2 000 housing units built
by 2024, half of which will be social housing
4 ha of green roofs
by 2024, a third of which will be dedicated to urban agriculture

Second focus: Accelerate our activity’s ecological transition

Clean bus fleet, reduce our energy consumption, diversify our energy mix, improve our eco-design and the recovery of waste. RATP Group
has made the ecological transition one of its CSR policy’s priority focuses.

In 2022, the Group achieved the highest level of the AFNOR certification, the CSR committed label.

Its performance in sustainable development across the Île-de-France region has granted RATP Group the “exemplary” level of the certification; the highest AFNOR standard. It is the only company in the industry to have achieved such a high level.
