Sustainable travel – climate smart business travel
Travel inescapably leaves a footprint, but with Resia as your business travel agency, you will be able to reduce your impact on the environment and offset the carbon footprint of your travel. Read more about how we will help you travel sustainably.
To reduce the environmental impact of your business travel, two questions must be faced: is it necessary to travel, and, if so, how should you travel? Whether travel is necessary is a matter you, of course, must decide. But when it comes to minimizing your environmental footprint, we can help.
Our top tips for sustainable travel include the following:
- Measure & follow up
Measure your present environmental impact, define goals to work towards, and then follow up.
- Reduce your environmental impact through smart choices
We help our customers with tips and advice for climate-smart travel.
- Offset your carbon footprint
The environmental impact of travel is inescapable, but you can always offset the carbon footprint of your travel by purchasing biofuel credits in anticipation of fossil-free flying.
Resia offers three different services to help you follow these tips and make your travel more sustainable. Below you can read more about these services: environmental statistics, biofuel credits and climate offset.
Environmental statistics on your business travel
As a first step, we compile a statistical report of the environmental impact of your travel, to give you a clear picture of the actual carbon footprint left by your business travel. This report takes up the environmental impact according to the directives of the Ministry of Environment and Energy. With a basis in clear-cut facts, you can then make the right decisions when setting up reasonable goals for reducing your future carbon footprint. We help you adapt your travel, and over time you will notice a clear statistical reduction in your environmental impact.
Biofuel credits – fossil-free flights with Fly Green Fund
Resia is the sole Swedish business travel agency to have a collaboration with Fly Green Fund. We can, therefore, offer our customers the opportunity to purchase biofuel credits, as a means to subvention and thereby stimulate the market for aviation biofuels. The goal is to fly as fossil-free as possible, and thus reduce the negative impact of travel on the environment.
Based on how much you fly, you pay a fee that goes directly to Fly Green Fund. The Fund then apportions 75 % for the purchase of biofuel, and 25 % towards the development of future production methods for biofuel. The cost of biofuel credits can be apportioned for your business travel and entered in the correct cost center for each separate trip you take.
Climate offset with Tricorona
In collaboration with Tricorona, we can offer you the opportunity to offset the climate footprint of your travel. Our customers can choose to offset the footprint caused by their business travel by investing in a climate-positive project, often in other parts of the world. Just as when purchasing biofuel credits, the cost of your climate offset can be apportioned per separate trip and entered in the correct cost center.
Even minor changes can make a big difference. We would be happy to show you how to you travel more climate smartly.
