Make travel an asset to your sustainability strategy

There is no denying the impact that business travel has on the environment, and it goes far beyond air travel emissions alone.

We understand that the future of business travel is sustainable travel, but that sustainability managers may have limited insights into the levers they could apply to reduce the overall footprint of the travel program.

Take a Holistic Approach

Through an optimal mix of advanced business intelligence, supplier management, and Traveler Engagement strategies, Advito’s experts can help you take concrete steps to become a more sustainable organization – starting with the travel program.

Starting with the data, we’ll build a strategy designed to reduce travel demand, decrease emissions, find the right suppliers, and galvanize your travelers.

Let insights be the building blocks to move you forward.

ISO-certified GATE4 methodology

GATE4 is the first methodology to provide robust reporting across air, hotel, rail, and car, on a global and market level.

To get a holistic picture of your total trip emissions, it’s not enough to just look at your air program. GATE4 is the first methodology to provide robust reporting across air, hotel, rail, and car, on a global and market level.

GATE4 also takes into account multiple components not included in standard carbon reporting, such as country-level electricity mix and carbon intensity, passenger to freight ratios, aircraft type, hotel eco-labels, amenities, rail operators’ individual sustainability initiatives, and more.

“Our travelers are excited to contribute to the success of our sustainability initiatives. And even more importantly, our early transition to Virtual Collaboration has allowed for business continuity as employees shift to working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has ensured that our employees can conduct business safely and stay healthy, and that’s the most important thing we could ask for.”
