EasyJet has launched carbon emissions reporting for its corporate customers to help them reduce their footprint.
Believed to be an industry first, the reports share facts, based on real flown data, to enable companies to measure their carbon emissions offset when flying and to help them set objectives for future travel.
The reports will also help businesses identify cost savings. Since 2019 EasyJet has been offsetting the carbon emissions from the fuel used for all its flights at no additional cost to its customers, supporting projects that are certified by Gold Standard or the Verified Carbon Standard.
It is also working with a number of partners, including Airbus, Rolls-Royce, Cranfield Aerospace Solutions and Wright Electric, to accelerate the development of zero-emission aircraft technology.
James Marchant, the airline’s Senior Business Development Manager, said: “We can see that businesses are travelling again, and they are looking not only for value but for airlines like easyJet which help them to reduce their carbon footprint. And, as we have seen in previous downturns, easyJet is expected to disproportionately attract more business travel, with corporates and SMEs attracted by our value, network and approach to sustainability.
Clive Wratten, Chief Executive of The Business Travel Association, added: “The business travel community has a vital role to play in ensuring that organisations can accurately measure and address their carbon footprints. Transport providers such as airlines are integral to this process, and we welcome any initiative, such as this one from easyJet, that helps British business take a more sustainable approach to travel.”
