Carpooling, a down-to-earth idea
The airport’s staff mobility plan offers a wide range of measures to encourage the use of sustainable means of transport.
For those who live too far away to come to work at the airport on foot or by bicycle, or who are not served by public transport, carpooling is an interesting alternative.
Of the 11,000 employees who work at the airport, the potential number of those who can make journeys as a group one or more days a week is considerable.
Passengers and visitors to the airport can also find a carpool partner to get to and from the airport by registering on the public website http://www.covoiturage.fr/.
More user-friendly, more economical, and safer, there are many advantages to carpooling!

Encouraging waste sorting and recycling
Waste management efforts have focused on encouraging sorting and recycling. Bodies and companies on the airport, particularly aircraft maintenance workshops, offices and restaurants, sort waste at the source.
Since January 2011, Genève Aéroport has been running a major waste sorting campaign for its staff and partners.
After the introduction of a per-bag levy on incinerable waste for franchisees and tenants of terminal T1, the installation in the terminal of new sorting bins, and the holding of training sessions on sorting and recycling, two video clips have been produced to encourage passengers to sort waste.
The video clips are shown on the screens on the Arrivals level and in the departure lounges.
