Sustainable business travel

GetGoing is here to give you a hand with making more sustainable business travel decisions because we know stopping to travel isn’t an option. So let’s work together to do it more sustainably. 

It comes down to four guiding principles​

1. Travel less
2. Travel better
3. Use sustainable suppliers
4. Compensate when there's no other way

Sustainable business travel starts with getting informed to make better travel decisions that will have the least impact on the environment possible.

Travel less

GetGoing promotes the travel less philosophy with our green light approval setting. This feature allows travel managers to control trip frequency and travel patterns before they are booked. This way travel managers and approvers can ask the question before the trip is booked: why are you traveling and is it really necessary? Cutting back on travel is an important step in protecting the environment from greenhouse emissions.

Travel better

Traveling better is about making more sustainable decisions around travel like prioritizing train travel when possible. This is why we’ve integrated rail as part of our GetGoing offering. When possible we hope to move some travel segments from air to rail, especially in Europe where the infrastructure is already in place. Once you’ve deemed whether it’s necessary to travel, we encourage you to combine business trips to stay longer and make the most out of an air ticket, making quality business trips over quantity.

Use sustainable suppliers

We recommend choosing sustainable partners, and we are committed to looking for other ways to offer more sustainable options on our platform.

Compensate when there's no other way

Compensating for your carbon footprint is more than just planting trees to offset your carbon emissions, it’s about researching projects that are actually working on making a difference like energy projects or nature-based solutions. While we’re not there yet, it’s part of our mission to find ways to give back to the environment through sustainable partnerships.

Did you know some scientists estimate whales can absorb 1.7 billion tons of CO2 yearly? Which is more than the aviation sector produces on a yearly basis! The role of whales in climate protection is currently being investigated and is probably way underestimated.​
