Armelle Weber, Eurostar, discusses her perspective on the potential for sustainable initiatives within the "new Eurostar" opportunity.
Eurostar, the company allowing us to travel safely and at ease across Europe, holds a significant role in shaping societal impacts. We asked Armelle Weber, External Relations & Sustainability Manager, four questions about Eurostar’s effort on sustainability.
What does sustainability mean to the company?
At Eurostar, we are passionate about looking after the planet. But we want to lead the way in making European travel more sustainable than ever.
Being green by nature is no longer enough. We have the ambition to facilitate the modal shift from air to rail and build the backbone of sustainable travel in Europe.
What sustainable efforts are you most proud of?
What role does advertising play in promoting your sustainable practices?
People become increasingly aware of the impact their choices have on the environment. They seek out products that are respectful. We need to be transparent and communicate more. Communication (external but also internal) is paramount. We need to walk the talk.
Why do you support the Care Awards?
Our mission is to connect people, cooperate & engage further with our community. We consider ourselves as an actor of change and not only as a carrier. It is therefore very natural to support Care Awards that bring and celebrate people coming from multiple horizons who are engaged for a better future.
