The ranking gathers data from 327 businesses across the world, targeting the biggest corporate flying emitters from different sectors. The ranking reveals that while the majority of companies report travel emissions, only a minority of companies commit to their reduction. If 10% of the largest emitters set 50% reduction targets, this would go half the way towards achieving the 2025 target and staying within 1.5°C global warming.
