Sustainable Business Travel
Easily offset the carbon footprint of your corporate travel
Business travel is important…
As a Travel Management Company, we completely understand how vital business travel can be for coming together as a team or building relationships with clients.
Whilst the world quickly adapted to a new world of hybrid working and meetings online during the pandemic, face-to-face meetings and events still provide crucial opportunities.
… but so is looking after the planet.
We want to be responsible in our travel choices, to ensure we’re offsetting our environmental impact.
That’s why we’ve partnered with Carbon Neutral Britain, to ensure that we can provide you with sustainable business travel options. This means you can easily offset the CO₂ emissions on any trip, helping you to reach your climate targets whilst meeting all your travel needs.
What are carbon offsetting projects?
Carbon Neutral Britain is the UK’s leading carbon offsetting initiative.
Through our partnership with them, we can ensure that your business travel is helping to support carbon offsetting projects across the world. They have a strong focus on offset projects that provide lasting social and economic benefits in developing countries globally, both directly and indirectly.
This means that they’re not just carbon offsetting, but also support education, employment or clean water and energy, as well as ensuring they have a positive impact on wildlife and ecology.
How does it work?
We’ll work out the amount of CO₂ emissions on your business trips, and let you know how much it would cost to offset these emissions.
You’ll pay this small additional cost that goes towards supporting certified projects around the world, aimed at reversing the effects of the emissions.
We’ll provide you with a certificate highlighting how you have offset the emissions to make your business travel carbon neutral.
Projects we’re supporting
As part of our commitment to building towards a more sustainable future, we’re also ensuring we do our own bit at Easy Avenues. This means that not only are we offering you the chance to offset your CO₂ emissions, but we are proud to be carbon neutral as a company ourselves.
Alongside small changes in our office – such as moving to eco-friendly materials – we’re also investing in the same carbon offsetting projects via Carbon Neutral Britain as you! Each of these projects have a positive impact with multiple benefits that align with the UN Sustainability Goals. You can view more information below.
Andes Mountains Hydro Power
Located in the Tinguiririca River upper valley, this Hydroelectric project is around 120km south of Santiago, Chile. Known as La Confluencia, the 163 MW run of river hydro power plant utilizes the hydrological resources of the Tinguiririca, Portillo and Azufre Rivers, in a run of river scheme to generate and supply zero emission energy to the Chilean central electricity grid (SIC). The power plant generates certified emission reductions (CERs) by displacing electricity generation from grid connected fossil fuel-fired power plants that would otherwise be generating electricity.
Energy Efficient Lighting
This project was developed by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) to promote energy efficient lighting in India, thus reducing the electricity, and therefore carbon emissions generated from the grid. When established, around 76% of India’s electricity was generated from coal – and so by reducing energy consumption and efficiency, over 35,000 tonnes of CO2e are offset each year.
Salkhit Wind Farm
The Salkhit Wind Farm is the first grid-connected wind farm in Mongolia. The project generates renewable electricity using wind power resources and supplies it to the Mongolian central electricity system grid to meet the growing electricity demand.
Nkhata Bay Cook Stove Project
The Nkhata Bay Cook Stove Project aims to improve the livelihoods, health, and environment of 200,000 people in Nkhata Bay District, Malawi by distributing high-efficiency biomass cook stoves to 22,000 households. The project aims to reduce deforestation, respiratory diseases, burns, and greenhouse gas emissions by saving wood consumption and reducing smoke and fire hazards.
