The Travel Carbon Project

Focus and Structure

  

The Travel Carbon Project will offer a focal point of information, resources and tools for the corporate travel community, enabling collective action to be taken on the environmental impact of global corporate travel.


  The Project has three membership groups: 


Corporate Members - Any company, partnership or government organisation, whose employees need to travel to do business.


Industry Members - Any airlines, hotels, car rental companies, railways, travel management companies, intermediaries and other travel-related suppliers who provide products, services and support to corporate travel.


Individual Members - Any individual corporate travellers or professionals in the global travel industry whose work requires them to travel, or involves them providing services and support to corporate travellers.

A source of practical solutions

By adopting a simple and focused approach, our aim is to help members take practical, coordinated and positive action on the environmental impact of their corporate travel carbon - today.


We recognise that to succeed, any action must be complimentary to a company's existing CSR programme. It must be capable of being integrated within any wider sustainability initiative. 


The positioning of the Travel Carbon Project will therefore be a specialist addition to a members existing environmental plan - delivering solutions that are focused on the corporate travel component - helping to add value to overall impact of the overall plan.  

Avoidance alternatives and offsetting

Solutions designed for the corporate travel community

Through a deep understanding of the drivers that cause business travel and detailed knowledge of the travel authority process, we will enable members to develop and implement solutions that do not restrict business activity.


Solutions that balance business requirements with environmental impact - and enable members to make informed decisions.


Travel avoidance and alternatives will feature strongly, However, where travel cannot be avoided a global scheme of dedicated member offsetting and investment into sustainable travel-related initiatives will be available.


Dedicated initiatives where members (and their staff) can see tangible evidence of their carbon offset being applied.


  • A clear line of sight to real projects. 
  • No trading of virtual credits
  • Real action in real places 


We see potential for Member company's own offsetting schemes and sustainable travel projects to be incorporated into the initiative. Opportunities for members to share their ideas and invest in each others programmes.
