United Airlines and Wyndham Worldwide are working together to reduce carbon emissions associated with corporate air travel
Increasingly hotels are inviting their guests to participate in their in-house sustainability programs. ALLCOT is aware of this tendency and offers solutions to do this.
Also, other companies are aware of this. One example is that United Airlines and Wyndham Worldwide are working together to reduce carbon emissions associated with corporate air travel. The hospitality company, which is one of the largest in the world, has agreed to become an official launch partner for United’s Eco-Skies CarbonChoice corporate carbon offset program. The Eco-Skies CarbonChoice program enables the airline’s corporate customers to track and offset the emissions stemming from their business travel and freight shipments on United at the enterprise level.
“As the only U.S. airline to offer a corporate carbon offset program, United’s CarbonChoice program represents another way for us to broaden and partner with our customers on environmental initiatives outside of our normal business relationship,” said Angela Foster-Rice, Managing Director of Environmental Affairs at United Airlines. “This program underscores United’s efforts to lead commercial aviation as an environmentally responsible company and we are thrilled to help play a role in Wyndham Worldwide’s carbon footprint reduction efforts.”
Through the CarbonChoice program, participating corporate customers receive customized enterprise-level carbon emissions reports and can purchase offsets to counterbalance the emissions associated with their transport, effectively allowing them to ship and travel carbon neutral on United.
Wyndham Worldwide is a hospitality industry leader in sustainability and social responsible practices and has been named to both the Dow Jones North America and World Sustainability Indices; recognized by CDP, the world’s largest global environmental disclosure system.
Wyndham’s corporate offset purchase will be invested in the GreenTrees’ Advanced Carbon Restored Ecosystem (ACRE) project along the Mississippi River Valley. To date, GreenTrees and its landowners have planted over 36 million trees on nearly 100,000 acres along the Mississippi Alluvial.
