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.

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.

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.
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.
Now you can influence sustainable booking behavior with GATE4 emissions figures displayed at the point of sale in the air search results in Concur Travel. Contact us to learn how this solution can benefit your sustainable travel program today.
Measuring beyond emissions
When integrating sustainability into your travel program, one of the biggest challenges is continuing to provide value and comfort to your travelers.
With Advito’s dynamic Traveler Wellness dashboard you can monitor key friction points including frequency of weekend travel, length of trips, and routes requiring layovers to ensure your program isn’t evolving at the expense of your people. Drill down into your different traveler populations, your road warriors, frequent travelers, and occasional travelers, to pinpoint trends affecting each group.
Engage your employees
With this data at your fingertips, you can create the right employee engagement communications to keep them engaged in achieving your goals.
From creating educational material on your company’s sustainability initiatives to building a change management campaign to help employees adopt new processes – no matter your goals, we’ll help you educate your employee to make the best choices, every step of the way.
“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.”
