Sustainable business travel policies:
Sustainable business travel includes all ways that limit the impact that business travel has on the planet, such as:
- Encouraging employees to take alternative transport instead of flying
Air travel accounts for as much as 20% of the CO2 footprint of international companies. Offering alternative, greener, ways of transport (eg the train) is one way to prevent CO2 emissions from air travel.
- Less travels, more video conferences
Another way is by offering video conferencing. It will never replace the human contact of a physical meeting, but will definitely save a lot of CO2, while people can still have the impression to “see” each others
- Offsetting CO2 emissions
Businesses can invest in CO2 reduction projects (eg planting trees) and encourage employees to buy their flight (if a flight is necessary) on websites such as FlyGRN, which offsets a flight’s CO2 emissions for free.
