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. Find here the information concerning the various services (bicycles, public transport, subsidies, parking lots, etc.)

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

In the spring of 2022, EPFL adopted new guidelines for responsible business and student travel, which will go into effect in the first quarter of 2023. This new policy aims to reduce the institution’s climate impact while ensuring a high level of service to the EPFL community.
