Travel management data specialist, Travelogix, has partnered with sustainability expert Trees4Travel to provide a long-lasting approach to carbon offsetting.
The first phase of the partnership will go live in March 2021 and will see Travelogix automate the supply of trip data directly to Trees4Travel for subscribed TMCs and their corporate customers.
The data supplied by Travelogix will allow Trees4Travel to determine how many trees need to be planted to offset the carbon emissions related to each trip booked and report those values back to Travelogix for sustainability tracking purposes.
The second phase of the project will allow TMCs and their corporates to visualise the progress of their sustainability programme with Trees4Travel at an agency and client level.
Travelogix will make the Trees4Travel integration available free of charge to all users of the Analytix data management platform.
Nico Nicholas, CEO of Trees4Travel commented: â€œOur partnership with Travelogix, made possible by early adopter; Sunways Travel, means there is effectively no excuse or justification for any business to not be offsetting their travel carbon from today.
â€œTravelogixâ€™s adoption of the Trees4Travel system means the calculation, purchase and ongoing monitoring of a companyâ€™s carbon footprint is all provided direct to its business travel manager and the corporate clients at the click of a mouse.”
