At FGA we are committed to delivering the energy transition in the travel sector. We’re speaking, posting and developing projects and mechanisms in order to get us moving again in a more sustainable way.
We have created some principle and an action plan for how to begin your green travel journey in this next phase:
- Creating an overarching sustainable travel policy to include more rail, electric vehicles, public transport, car sharing, electric scooters, economy over first-class flying, parking for bikes, and provisions for virtual meetings
- For global meetings, choosing the best host location, based on the least carbon created and including sustainable travel options
- Consistently measure your scope 1, 2 and 3 carbon emissions – particularly scope 3, in which travel sits – to see how you can improve
- For unavoidable travel emissions, think about investing in legitimate carbon offsets, such as those provided by Gold Standard
- Scrutinise your organisation’s ‘say/do’ gap – i.e. what you say you’re willing to do to work on climate change, and what you’ll actually do – read more
- Keep up to date with the latest news, trends, technology and new ways of thinking around travel by consuming reliable reports and other media
- Join a body like the Fly Green Alliance, which aggregates commitments to buying sustainable fuel, fostering partnerships, building green travel programmes, managing offtake agreements and mobility partnerships
