Via ID’s mission

To develop new activities and new services for sustainable mobility, in the medium and long term, and thus feed Mobivia’s strategy of growth, diversification, automotive transformation and sustainable development.

Via ID’s commitment to impact

In all the initiatives that Via ID leads, the ambition is to serve the development of a sustainable mobility accessible to all, in the continuity of Mobivia’s raison d’être: “Opening Sustainable Mobility to all”.

To achieve this, the projects must meet the following UN Sustainable Development Goals as a priority:

  • SDG 13 – Fight against climate change: does the company’s activity avoid greenhouse gas emissions?
  • SDG 12 – Responsible consumption and products: does the service serve a circular economy logic?
  • SDG 3 – Good health and well-being: does the project aim to improve the health of its users?
  • SDG 10 – Reduced inequalities: does the initiative make a solution accessible to more people or to people who are usually excluded?
Reduced inequalities Good health Responsible consumption Climate action

 

 

 

 

Our sustainability goals are:

  • to contribute to carbon neutrality in 2050: to reduce our CO2 emissions and those of our portfolio by 30% by 2025;
  • continue to develop positive impact sales. Evaluated according to a method defined by Mobivia and its BUs, it aims to establish which products and services create a positive impact, and to measure and monitor their development.

Working alongside users for 50 years, Mobivia’s companies support everyone in their mobility, whatever their needs, means and choices, by offering useful, innovative and sustainable mobility solutions.
