With fewer business journeys and more remote collaboration, companies and their employees can innovate purposeful travel and gain a better work-life balance, as experienced during the pandemic.

Fly less,
achieve
more.

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

Fewer business flights and more remote meetings will save money for your business, protect your employees’ well-being, reduce emissions, show corporate leadership in the climate crisis, meet investor expectations and ensure resilience.

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

And this is only set to rise.

Business travel
represents approximately
30% of all air travel in Europe

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 to reduce their travel emissions through reducing the demand for business travel. The pandemic has offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lock in reductions in global corporate flying and to introduce a new culture of purposeful and effective travel.

In 2020, businesses successfully adapted to a new way of working. The ease with which many employees and customers adjusted to being home and flying less revealed that those long-held ideas of the need to fly for work no longer stand.

The ranking gathers data from 230 businesses across the world, targeting the biggest corporate flying emitters from different sectors. The ranking reveals that company commitments and reporting are still in the early stages of development. Current targets are not yet sufficient to reduce oil dependency and greenhouse gas emissions in line with 1.5°C warming scenarios, and reporting is not standardized and frequently opaque.
