TRX Launches Carbon Emissions Model for Corporate Travel
Travel industry transaction processing and data integration services provider TRX has launched a carbon emissions model to provide corporations with data detailing the impact of employee travel on the environment.
Corporations can learn how much CO2 their specific global air travel program has emitted, as well as how their program compares to industry averages. The model also allows companies to see which carriers are the lowest CO2 emitters for their travel footprint, providing them with tools to determine how changing their preferred carriers, or modifying their travel volume, would impact the environment.
The model matches travel data from the corporation (such as arrival/departure cities, carriers, etc.) with worldwide flight schedules, and aircraft and engine information (the size, type and age of the plane, the plane’s engine configuration, etc.).
TRX is donating 15 percent of proceeds from sales of its carbon emissions model to Native Energy, which uses companies’ carbon offsets to help build wind energy projects on Native American and Native Alaskan land.
