Corporate travel has embraced the green imperative: most (89%) industry professionals surveyed by the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) believe that sustainability is a priority for business travel.

But it seems that execution has not caught up with ambition. Research conducted by Global Business Consulting (GBC), the consulting arm of American Express Global Business Travel (Amex GBT), which acquired Ovation in 2021, among travel managers and procurement professionals confirms that many travel managers are just at the start of the sustainability journey. According to this poll, more than half (57%) have undertaken one-off green projects but have not yet defined a comprehensive sustainability strategy

It’s time to act. GBC developed 5 Steps to Reduce Emissions from Business Travel to help you take your first steps on your journey to decarbonization. Using it, you can turn a hypothetical conversation into a data-driven business strategy.

  • Determine a baseline year and calculate your emissions

  • Identify the opportunities to reduce emissions
  • Develop and implement interventions
  • Monitor progress, adjust where needed
