AirPlus International, a global provider of corporate travel payment solutions, releases March’s The Wire…from AirPlus entitled: Green Travel Policies. Within the survey, companies cited insufficient information and cost as the two barriers to implementation of green travel initiatives. Almost 30% measure carbon emissions produced by their travel activities but roughly half at 17% have actually created and implemented policies to manage their carbon footprint.
