The Sustainability Institute
Increasingly client are integrating CSR into their procurement decisions, as it relates to labour & human rights, environment and ethics.
How does that relate to a more sustainable travel programme?
What processes are being followed by corporations?
Adding sustainability into the travel programme involves some upfront costs, such as research and third-party advice - especially when selecting suppliers or seeking certifications. There are also indirect costs as customers, shareholders and investors will increasingly review corporations' green policies.
On the flip side there is a lot of scope to make cost savings.
According to the New Climate Economic Report, the amount of money humanity could save through a global shift to sustainable technologies and techniques would be $26 trillion by 2030 - in increased productivity, innovation and reduced health costs.
Many companies have modified or even transformed their travel programmes to adopt a more blended approach, where virtual and physical meetings work hand-in-hand. Some clients have adopted a new blended approach to business meetings, where the initial meetings are virtual and continue until such time as a face-to-face meeting becomes more valuable.
TakeTwo work with our clients to adopt new best practices, to help them create a greener travel programme - reducing carbon emissions, reducing cost and assisting companies to achieve their sustainable goals.
