CWT Launches Thrust Carbon Powered Emissions Calculations
Written by Mark Corbett on 28 Mar 2022
CWT, the Business-to-Business-for-Employees (B2B4E) travel management platform, today launches new point-of-sale carbon emissions indicators for myCWT mobile and web. Building on their early success using DEFRA data over the past decade, securing a partnership with Thrust Carbon was seen as a “natural evolution and progression” due to the granularity of sustainability detail provided.
“We surveyed our global customer base at the end of 2021, and an overwhelming 87% expressed that they would like information provided to their employees at point-of-booking to help reinforce responsible travel choices,” said Erik Magnuson, VP Product Management, Mobility & Payments. “CWT’s new carbon emissions indicators will help customers and their travellers understand their corporate and personal travel footprints, and reduce their impact on the environment,” Magnuson concluded.
Here at Thrust Carbon, we see this as a transformative moment for business travellers. As the leading emissions intelligence business in travel, we recognise how important it is for clients to access granular emissions data, and every stage of the traveller journey.
“If the traveller cannot see their emissions at point-of-sale, then it simply will not be a factor in their decision making” said Mark Corbett, Founder & Director of Thrust Carbon. “We are rapidly moving to a world where emissions data will be valued side by side with financial data. Together with our partners at CWT, we have made a giant leap towards delivering this for business travellers around the world.”
“An overwhelming 87% of CWT customers expressed that they would like information provided to their employees at point-of-booking to help reinforce responsible travel choices”
Building on our the success of recent launches, including as an SAP Concur Partner, this further establishes our ability to deliver across platforms, and ensure a comprehensive emissions analysis for clients. Ultimately, every step forward helps us cut more emissions, and moves us closer to securing the future of our planet.
