The Hague Connected and employers in The Hague once again achieved results with participation in European Mobility Week 2023

8th November 2023

Every year, the European Commission organizes European Mobility Week, an awareness campaign about sustainable urban mobility. Just like last year, The Hague Connected participated together with other The Hague companies from September 16 to 22, 2023. This year the theme was ‘travel green, sustainable and healthy’.

NN, Shell, Siemens (all united in The Hague Connected), together with the municipality of The Hague, the Province of South Holland, MKB The Hague, VNO-NCW The Hague region, Rabobank, Green Business Club Beatrixkwartier and The Hague & Partners put in effort for sustainable travel behavior in the The Hague region.


During Mobility Week, employees were encouraged to cycle, use public transport, avoid rush hour or work from home. The participating companies received a digital toolbox via the Economic Board The Hague and Zuid Holland Bereikbaar containing useful tips with sustainable mobility options. The entire week was all about making a joint impact on and increasing sustainable mobility. “It is great to contribute to this initiative together with other major employers in The Hague. In view of the mobility transition, it is good that this campaign returns annually and The Hague remains committed to this,” says Marco Esser, Director of The Hague & Partners.


Measurements were taken by Rijkswaterstaat and all data was examined prior to, during and one month after the action week. During the European Mobility Week, 3.5% fewer cars were measured on the road in the The Hague region and 30,000 km fewer were traveled on the A4, A12 and N14. This takes into account the nuisance on access roads and the additional diversions to and from The Hague. The results were received enthusiastically from Zuid Holland Bereikbaar: “The reduction in the number of car kilometers this week has a second benefit and that is a CO2 reduction of almost 6 tons. Great to see that the joint effort has led to measurable results.”


The mobility week contributes to awareness and helps employers to think about the (legal) changes that will take place in the coming years, such as the reporting obligation for work-related personal mobility and the Zero-Emission city zones.
