Thematic Event: Sustainable Business Travel

10th June 2022, 18:00 - 21:00

Pictures   Presentation

Thank you for joining GreenBuzz Zurich at Hyatt Regency Zurich Airport The Circle as we came together to discuss how business travel can become more sustainable in a post-covid world.

Whilst we see a rise in virtual meetings, there is a huge appetite for humans to build business relationships in person and re-start regular business travel.

Some ideas exist – fewer longer trips, attaching holidays to business trips, offsetting emissions. What more can be done?

Some of the questions we considered are:

  • The lack of an industry-accepted metric & methodology for calculating the carbon footprint, especially for hotels.
  • How to move from post-trip offsetting to pre-trip reduction education?
  • How should supplier sustainability be included in the travel procurement process?
  • “Scope 3 Calculations” – How far down the supply chain should sustainability metrics be calculated?
  • Personalized travel – How new technology with suppliers can return personalized results (e.g. choosing not to have a meal on an overnight flight)?
