Educate and influence your stakeholders

After spending so much effort to understand your footprint and what actions you can take to reduce it, the next step is to engage with your travelers. You will only achieve your sustainability goals if they are aware of those goals and active participants in making the changes that are necessary.

Our Traveler Engagement experts will create targeted messaging based on your program data that is tied to your sustainability initiatives. You can help your travelers understand new policy directives, when they should be shifting from air travel to rail, or if there are suitable virtual alternatives that could replace a trip altogether.

By reinforcing key sustainability messages across multiple channels, you will make your travelers an important piece of your sustainability agenda.

Through an optimal mix of advanced business intelligence, supplier management, and Traveler Engagement strategies, you can ensure reduced carbon emissions, business continuity, and increased productivity and satisfaction no matter how your employees work together.
