Fly less,
achieve more

By reducing frequent flying, while making the most of rail journeys and virtual collaboration, companies can innovate purposeful travel and see benefits for both their business and the planet.

Reduce your corporate travel emissions by -50% or more of pre-Covid levels by 2025 or sooner.​

Commitments from the biggest business flyers can shift the dial on global corporate air travel emissions. Prioritising sustainability and new ways to perform while flying less will lead to competitive advantage.

Global air travel is the most climate-intensive form of transport.

And this is only set to rise.

Business travel
represents approximately
15-20% of global air travel

Business travelers
make up to 75% of revenues
on certain flights

Given companies’ significant purchasing power and leverage, businesses now have a unique opportunity to influence the acceleration of sustainable aviation and improved rail services, by reducing flying and voicing demand for clean travel options. 
Consumers, investors and employees are more concerned by the impacts of climate change than ever before. If businesses fall out of step with expectations, their reputation is at risk. Demonstrating a commitment to sustainability and adopting planet friendly travel policies, will enhance their image, appeal and overall success.

The ranking gathers data from 322 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.
