Business travel can form a large part of a company’s carbon footprint. Offsetting the business flights within your company is an effective way to reduce your climate impact. Offsetting ensures that your CO2 emissions are reduced or avoided elsewhere. In many cases, it is possible to have your business flights offset automatically via your travel agent instead of having to arrange it afterwards.
Offsetting with climate projects
There are a number of sustainable alternatives to flying and driving, but these are unfortunately not yet fully developed or available. Offsetting is, therefore, a great tool to reduce your unavoidable emissions elsewhere. This can be done by investing in one of our offset projects in South Africa or abroad. These projects not only reduce carbon emissions but also enhance the quality of life for local communities.
Offsetting via your travel agent
In order to make offsetting as easy as possible, your travel agent can do it for you. In this way, every flight you book will have its carbon emissions automatically calculated and offset. The small additional cost is included in the invoice you receive from your travel agent, along with other extras such as airport taxes and fuel surcharges. Further, as the offset is included in the ticket price it is tax deductible, making the offset, even more, cost-effective.
We work with a growing network of travel management companies abroad that have expanded their booking system with our unique Greenseat offsetting module. In South Africa the following travel companies offer Greenseat:
