Project ICARUS Sustainability
Best Practice Certificate Program 2017

Module 4: TBD
Module 5: TBD




Almost all major companies around the world have a corporate responsibility or sustainability program in place today. These programs are an integral part of a company’s future reputation, risk management, employee welfare and profitability.

Responsible Business Travel programs have grown in line with this trend, meaning that corporate  buyers now need to be aware of the potential opportunities they bring. This is leading to a Must Do rather than a Nice To Do mentality.


In order to support travel buyers, Project ICARUS will be running the industry’s only Sustainability E-learning Certificate program.


Successful completion of the series will lead to a recognition certificate in sustainable business travel management.


We will deliver a series of educational e-learning sessions aimed primarily at business travel buyers. The program would also be of benefit to suppliers and intermediaries who want to understand more on the subject. The sessions will be in an interactive, practical, workshop style, including learning from best in class travel buyers who have received the ICARUS Gold Medal/Outstanding Achievement Award and delivered a great return on investment for their company.


Each session will be joined by delegates from North America and Europe who will share best practice and better understand the issues from a multi-market perspective.


Be amongst the first to receive industry recognition for best practice in sustainability in business travel and meetings.


GBTA member registrants will have access to the archives in the GBTA Hub Resource Library.
