New York City Chapter – Sustainability Best Practices: A Discussion on How to Manage the Climate Impact of Business Travel

April 21, 2023 @ 5:30 am - 6:30 am - EDT

A snapshot into how companies are currently reducing emissions from their corporate travel programs.
Companies are practicing a wide range of strategies to decarbonize their travel programs. These include, among others: demand management policies, better point-of-booking information to nudge employees to select lower carbon options, partnering with responsible transport and accommodations providers, investing in low-carbon technologies, tracking emissions against a set baseline, and purchasing carbon offsets. But which solutions are truly driving change and allowing companies to continue to travel for business when necessary, while reducing their climate impact?

GBTA will provide a snapshot into how companies are currently mitigating their emissions from business travel (scope 3.6) – including key ingredient for success, types of measures currently at disposal and their various pros and cons, including barriers thar require collective multi-stakeholder action to accelerate progress.
