The Roads Between Us

In November 2012, Nestlé, Zurich and Interactive Driving Systems, with support from Activa, the Fleet Forum and Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP), partnered to organise a two day interactive stakeholder event on work-related road safety in Ghana. 

The programme explored what an effective work-related road risk management process looks like and discussed next steps for implementation within emerging markets. The event also gave birth to an ongoing series of 'Roads Between Us' conference calls which serve to keep like-minded parties connected, share good practice and build networks across industries and across sectors. 

The inaugural event was followed in 2014 by another successful conference in Cameroon, and in 2016, Nestlé, Zurich Insurance, EDriving FLEET, Aon, PARIMA, International SOS and the Global Road Safety Partnership hosted the 3rd "Roads Between Us" road safety conference, this time in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, over 2 interactive days on 4 and 5 October 2016.

These events are proving to be outstanding opportunities to share good practice in effective work-related road risk management and agree on next steps for implementation within emerging markets. Through these events and the following interactions, organizations with fleet risk exposure are not only building their capacity to design effective road safety strategies, but they are joining peer networks which continue to share and collaborate into the future.

The 'Roads Between Us' events seek share successes and address challenges in key topic areas including: 

  • Suppliers, contractors, sub-contractors and customers
  • Community engagement
  • Infrastructure development
  • Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Benchmarking and best practice
  • Emergency response
  • Road Safety as part of the 'United Nations Sustainability Development Goals'
  • The growing challenge of powered two-wheelers
