The Corporate Vehicle Observatory is a neutral knowledge sharing platform dedicated to all corporate fleet stakeholders wheter they are private or public companies.
The CVO was founded in 2002 by BNP Paribas and its subsidiary Arval that specializes in the full service leasing of corporate fleets.
The Corporate Vehicle Observatory is present today in 15 countries and its mission is to inform all the players of the industry, engaging them in discussions about the developments of corporate mobility in its broader sense. Safety, alternative energies and fuel, to name but a few are some of the key industry trends that the CVO observes and analyses both at local and international level. Part of this analysis is then distributed via one of the CVO's main deliverables, the annual CVO Fleet Barometer, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2015.
Where present the CVO produces books, white papers and studies on specific topics. In addition it organizes dedicated workshops and conferences for companies and fleet managers as well as car manufacturers and lessors on a range of topics. The activity of the CVO is also heavily covered within the professional media with the organisation of press conferences and the active contribution to articles and press releases.
Ultimately the benefit of those that approach the CVO is to have access to expertise and knowledge through all its projects as well as through the voice of external experts who contribute to the success of the various initiatives.
