Mobility and Travel

Commuting and business travel generate about 40% of EPFL’s environmental impact. EPFL has decided to implement an innovative and ambitious mobility plan with a strong integration of sustainability.

Mobility on campus

At EPFL, there are more bicycles than cars! This result was made possible by the implementation of an ambitious and innovative mobility plan.

Business and student travel

In 2019, business mobility was the main source of CO2 emissions at EPFL, accounting for around 30% of the total impact. In order to reduce air travel, EPFL Sustainability has put out for public consultation two new directives for EPFL staff and students.

New EPFL travel policies

From 5 November 2021 until 10 December 2021, the new travel directives are put in consultation to the entire EPFL community.
