The Parlons Gaz (let’s talk gas) rally

A unique employee advocacy event in France

At a time when a new generation of renewable gas1 is gradually appearing as a solution for a successful energy transition in our country, GRTgaz is organising, from 8 to 18 October, the Parlons Gaz rally. This original initiative forms part of its employee advocacy programme. It aims to promote a better understanding of the current and future challenges of gas and its new uses while developing expression and interaction between the tertiary and operational teams.

What is the Parlons Gaz rally?

  • 4 vehicles running on VNG (Vehicular Natural Gas),
  • a different team per day and per vehicle,
  • 9 stages from the GRTgaz site located in Aix-en-Provence (Bouches-du-Rhône) to the head office at Bois-Colombes (Hauts-de-Seine),
  • each team make a a different stopover during the day to meet a large number of employees.

A fun way to gain greater understanding of complex issues
Throughout the rally, the 84 drivers and co-drivers take part in challenges aimed at encouraging sharing knowledge with the employees met on the ground, on both the industrial and the tertiary sites. Each employee can also interact with the rally participants on the company’s internal social media and on a new platform dedicated to GRTgaz ambassadors.

The development of renewable gases, a change which involves all of GRTgaz’s employees
This rally is intended to promote discussions and the sharing of experience around gas issues which today involve all of GRTgaz’s activities and employees. The emergence of new sectors is a reality today with the growth of biomethane, renewable gas produced locally, and the development of fuel gas for transport. Innovative technical solutions, new customers connected to our network, support for new uses, etc. the Parlons Gaz rally will allow each employee to better understand how gas and its infrastructure are a vital lever to a successful energy transition.

Hervé Rambaud, GRTgaz Human Resources Director underlines that "the Parlons Gaz rally gas is an exemplary initiative that enjoys the support and involvement of the company’s entire Executive Committee, which is indispensable for ensuring the success of this event."
