Reed & Mackay adds enhanced CO2 data to sustainability toolkit

Reed & Mackay’s clients can now see enhanced CO2 data for air, rail, car hire and hotels within the global TMC’s proprietary online booking platform, R&M/Book.

Reed & Mackay announced its partnership with SQUAKE earlier this year to deliver enhanced CO2 data to its client base.

The first in a series of sustainability focused enhancements set to land over the coming months, this latest release provides more informed choice, with carbon calculations within Reed & Mackay’s online booking platform now factoring in number of passengers, aircraft model, booking class and more.

“As companies look to balance achieving their ESG targets with the need to stay connected to the international business community through in-person meetings, they are increasingly turning to their travel and events partners to empower their travellers to make informed choices with the latest CO2 intelligence,” said Fred Stratford, Reed & Mackay’s Global CEO.

“At the same time, they also want to be able to balance sustainability goals with cost management and traveller productivity. That is what we’re enabling clients to do at Reed & Mackay”.

The enhancement presents the relative carbon position of a flight compared to other flights that day – alongside clear policy markers – and also enables users to sort results by cost, preference and now carbon emissions.

Fahim Khan, Global Director of Product, Reed & Mackay, said: “This is a new chapter for our in-product sustainability offering, designed in partnership with clients to help them meet their ESG targets. By leveraging SQUAKE’s data, we go beyond the generic calculations that are currently the norm in the market, which means deeper information and ultimately more informed choices for clients as they work to manage Scope 3 emissions in support of their wider ESG goals.”
