GBTA Travel Research Tools

Sustainability Self-Assessment Tool

This tool was designed to allow organizations to effectively measure themselves across 10 different categories in order to identify strengths and gaps within their travel program as it relates to sustainability. This updated tool provides recommendations to your organization based around responses in the 10 different areas. Participants will then be directed to resources on how to improve or implement efficient sustainability initiatives within their travel program.

After successful completion of the demographics section you’ll need to complete the Overall Sustainability Program category and Policies and Procedures. From there you’ll be able to complete the other categories in any particular order.


  • Overall Sustainability Program
  • Policies and Procedures
  • Air
  • Hotel
  • Car Rental
  • Rail
  • Other Transportation
  • Meetings and Events
  • Traveler Well-Being
  • Program Communications


Successful completion of each of the above categories will provide you with a set of recommendations and indicate your program’s maturity level. Once you have completed all categories your overall maturity level will be determined. 

If you have any questions or technical difficulties, please contact Paul Yachnes at pyachnes@gbta.org for assistance.
