Many countries and companies have set a target of making zero carbon emissions. Some are already there while others expect to get there at some point between now and 2050. Some have done so by investing in carbon offsetting schemes while others have made concrete efforts to rethink their operations to remove carbon dioxide from the process.For the companies that have committed to cutting carbon, business travel is often in their sights, particularly after the Covid pandemic showed that many meetings could take place using video-conferencing technologies like Zoom and Microsoft Teams.This week we have heard how the French government wants to ban some domestic short-haul flights while two airlines - United Airlines and Lufthansa Group - have launched sustainable aviation fuel programmes for corporates.This podcast features Daniel Tallos, EMEA travel manager of Nike, Karen Hutchings, global head of travel, meetings & events at EY and Pascal Jungfer, CEO and co-founder of Areka Consulting – talk about how travel programmes can reach net zero.We discuss carbon offsetting programmes, nudge behaviour, setting relevant baselines and whether TMCs and online booking tools can help travellers make the right choices.
