The Air Normand&Cie PDE, launched in 2007, is in fact a PDIE – a Plan de Déplacement Inter-Entreprises (Inter-Company Travel Plan) –, because it brings together the employees of Air Normand’s neighbouring* companies in a collective approach.

Involve at least 50% of employees; to do this, an action plan has been implemented (covering the years 2009 to 2012), comprising symbolic, incentive, event-oriented and informative measures. Examples that could be cited include organising luncheon-hour mini-conferences (exposure to pollution in the car interior, telework, etc.), awareness-raising days (bicycles in the city, eco-driving, etc.)
A newsletter, Bon pied Bon œil, is also published regularly.
