Tools & Suppliers

As a business, you can make a significant difference in reducing your emissions. These companies and tools can help you outline and implement a sustainable business travel strategy.

6 steps to a sustainable travel policy

1. Adjust your travel policy,

2. Avoid travel and meet remotely as much as possible via tele- and video conference. As an organization, invest in the necessary infrastructure and training.

3. Take the train or bus to European cities that can be reached in eight hours or less, or that are less than 700 kilometers away. Make a distinction between cities that you as a company or organization do not fly to by default, because there is an obvious and easy alternative, and slightly more distant or more difficult to reach cities that are preferably not flown to.

4. Make employees more aware of their travel behavior and choices. Communication campaigns, internal ambassadors, management that sets a good example and even gamification facilitate the implementation of a sustainable travel policy. And at the same time ensure that it is supported by the employees.

5. Monitor the evolution of the number of business trips and their emissions, including air travel. If necessary, differentiate per department.

6. Do you still have to fly? Then choose economy class, avoid stopovers and transfer flights and enter a possibly voluntary CO2 contribution.

Plan your international train trip

Calculating CO₂ emissions and contributions

  • By visually displaying the CO2 emissions of a flight, you can discourage travelling by plane. For this, you can use the free tool flight emission map, for example. Tech-tip: you can also integrate the map into your own website and display Brussels as a centre. To do so, check 'Customising the map' in the menu.
  • That avoiding air travel really makes a difference, read this study and this article.
  • Via BOS+'s Treecological calculator, you can calculate how much CO2 a flight emits and offset it. You can also calculate your CO2 contribution through Atmosfair or Greentripper.
  • The greenest transport solution? Compare your CO2 emissions for travelling by train, car or plane via Ecopassenger.
