For some companies, sustainability extends across virtually all operations.  Corporate travel and meetings management are no exception. This webinar examines the role of environmental sustainability in corporate travel and meetings management programs. Based on a survey of travel managers and meeting planners in North America and several European countries, it addresses a number of topics including:

  • Priorities: Is sustainability a priority for companies? Is it a priority for corporate travel and meetings programs specifically? Do some types of companies prioritize sustainability more than other companies?
  • Emission targets: Do companies have organization-wide carbon emission reduction targets? Do they have targets specifically for corporate travel, or company-hosted meetings and events?
  • Sustainable travel management: Are companies interested in travel-related sustainability measures? Examples include purchasing carbon offsets or sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), imposing an internal carbon tax on business travel, prioritizing lower emission flights, and revising travel policies.
  • Sustainable meetings management: How often do companies have sustainability measures in place for company-hosted meetings and events? Examples include composting, using recyclable packaging, and serving locally sourced food.
  • Sustainable supplier sourcing: To what extent do companies consider sustainability measures when selecting suppliers including hotels and meeting venues? Do companies include sustainability-related questions in their RFPs?
