Travel management data specialists, Travelogix, have partnered with sustainability experts Trees4Travel in an exciting move for both companies.
Trees4Travel, a leading light in the race for true and tangible sustainability, have partnered with Travelogix in order to continue their drive to provide a long-lasting approach to carbon offsetting.
The first phase of the partnership will go live in March 2021 and will see Travelogix automate the supply of trip data directly to Trees4Travel for subscribed TMCs and their corporate customers.
The data supplied by Travelogix will allow Trees4Travel to determine how many trees need to be planted to offset the carbon emissions related to each trip booked and report those values back to Travelogix for sustainability tracking purposes.
The second phase of the project will allow TMCs and their corporates to visualise the progress of their sustainability programme with Trees4Travel at an agency and client level.
Travelogix will make the Trees4Travel integration available free of charge to all users of the Analytix data management platform.
Mark Colley, MD at Sunways Travel, was crucial in the introduction of Trees4Travel and will be part of the three-way pilot between the companies.
Trees4Travel company statement: “Trees4Travel are delighted to have partnered with Travelogix. It is imperative that the business community embraces sustainable changes to its travel model, as we return to in-person relationship building for economic growth. COVID-19 has provided the pause and the opportunity to reflect on how we can both protect our planet and rebuild healthy financial futures."
Working directly with Travelogix will provide an easy, cost effective, tangible and dynamic solution to booking travel that can be entirely offset within ten years. Trees are the greatest natural absorber of carbon dioxide; providing a beautifully simple, inexpensive and effective filter for CO2, storing the carbon for their lifetime whilst returning clean oxygen in to the atmosphere.
Nico Nicholas, CEO of Trees4Travel commented: “Our partnership with Travelogix, made possible by early adopter; Sunways Travel, means there is effectively no excuse or justification for any business to not be offsetting their travel carbon from today.
“Travelogix’ adoption of the Trees4Travel system means the calculation, purchase and ongoing monitoring of a company’s carbon footprint is all provided direct to its business travel manager and the corporate clients at the click of a mouse. It really is as simple as that”.
Chris Lewis, Founder & CEO at Travelogix commented: “Our team here at Travelogix are incredibly excited by this new partnership. Sustainability has always been a hot topic in travel, but certainly as we move into a post-COVID-19 society, we will see this become even more crucial. Nico, Elkie and their wider team have delivered a solution to the market that provides a tangible yet simplistic way in which we can positively impact our planet, and ultimately reverse the effects of climate change. We are genuinely excited to be working with Trees4Travel and empowering TMC’s and travellers alike to make better, and more sustainable, decisions while travelling.”
