Pfizer

Pfizer, Grange Castle, Co. Dublin

Engaging with Employees

The Pfizer employee travel survey in 2009 was one of the most popular surveys ever conducted in the Grange Castle campus, in terms of numbers responding. This gives Pfizer a great insight into how employees travel to work and where there are opportunities to further promote sustainable travel.

Pfizer are re-launching their car-sharing scheme, with more parking spaces allocated in priority locations, and with contractors invited to partake in the scheme. With 43% of employees open to considering car-sharing, there is significant potential to reduce pressure on car parking spaces and carbon emissions, as well as reducing fuel costs for employees.

 

Pfizer in Grange Castle is pleased to be engaging with employees in a meaningful way about something that affects them all—the journey to work. There is significant interest from Pfizer employees in sustainable travel and exploring their options. To date we have improved cycle parking, re-launched our car-sharing scheme and improved commuter shower/ changing facilities on site. We are also reaching beyond our campus and are engaging with South Dublin County Council for group cycles, Mobility Week events and other travel related issues.
