TravelPerk acquires travel sustainability consultancy

TravelPerk has acquired UK corporate travel sustainability consultancy firm, Susterra, its fourth acquisition this year.

Susterra was founded by environmental scientist James Dent and uses data analytics technology to offer companies a “holistic view of their entire business travel-related environmental impact” using the industry-standard ICAO Methodology.

Its technology will be integrated into TravelPerk’s platform in the coming months. 

TravelPerk said corporates will be able to use Susterra’s reports on flights, hotels, car hire, and rail travel to gain actionable insights, which will allow them to improve their carbon efficiency, reduce costs, and achieve their sustainability goals.

Ross McNairn, Chief Product Officer of TravelPerk, said: “The meetings that matter will always happen in person so companies will always need their employees to travel in order to meet customers, prospects and teams face to face.

“That said there is massive demand from our clients to enable these meetings with the lowest possible impact on the environment.

“It’s for this reason that we are investing heavily in helping our clients get a true representation of their footprint so that they can consciously take mitigating action both through TravelPerk and their own programmes. Sustainability is a long game and we want to be leaders in this transition.”

TravelPerk also offers clients the chance to offset 100% of their carbon emissions through its GreenPerk initiative.
