KNVB and ENGIE jointly launch the GO smart mobility program 

In Dutch football there are tens of thousands of games every week. The traffic that goes with it (players, supporters and family members) causes a huge amount of pollution: 65 kiloton of CO₂ emissions per year.

KNVB and ENGIE are tackling the challenge of achieving CO₂ reduction across all kinds of transport, such as bus, car and train. Various solutions will be developed jointly in the coming years. Such as optimizing the playing schedule, integrating new modes of transport, implementation of smart charging stations and designing technical solutions for, for example, 'driving to the games together'.

Football is the largest sport in the Netherlands which means that an optimal impact can be generated on CO₂ reduction.

ENGIE Nederland
ENGIE stands out with regards to the energy transition of almost all its competitors. Because it is both a technical service provider and an energy supplier, the company can mean just a bit more for its customers. With smart technological solutions, the company looks at whether it can reduce the energy needs of its customers. Then it fills in the remaining energy requirement with renewable energy. ENGIE accelerates the transition with this two-step model.
