Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 22 gennaio 2022

Minneapolis. CWT, the Business-to-Business-for-Employees (B2B4E) travel management platform and Etihad Airways, the national carrier of the United Arab Emirates, today announce a unique carbon offsetting partnership initiative, as part of the launch of Etihad’s Corporate Conscious Choices programme. The first partnership of its kind between Etihad and a TMC, this initiative will see all CWT client bookings made on Etihad-operated flights automatically offset by the airline using the ICAO Carbon Emissions Calculation methodology. Running between the period 1 January 2022 to 31 March 2022, this innovative global partnership will see all offsets purchased go to Etihad’s official offsetting climate action programmes in Makame Savannah REDD project in Tanzania, Peru’s Cordillera Azul National Park and Indonesia’s Katingan Mentaya Project.Beyond this initiative, Etihad and CWT’s longstanding global partnership will continue to see them collectively and individually drive forward the carbon neutrality agenda alongside delivering tangible carbon footprint solutions.“Seeking more environmentally responsible travel solutions is a continuing focus, and our initial offsetting partnership with Etihad is the latest in our range of such groundbreaking initiatives,” said Patrick Andersen, President & Chief Commercial Officer at CWT. As a launch partner for Etihad’s Corporate Conscious Choices, CWT is one of the first organisations globally to participate in Etihad’s unique corporate sustainability programme, designed specifically for organisations committed to reducing emissions and operating sustainably, with rewards and incentives designed to proactively support pro-environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives and employee behaviour.“Innovation and sustainability are at the core of our business, and our carbon-offsetting partnership with CWT is another fundamental iterative step towards us realizing our ambitious sustainability goals to reduce carbon emissions in the air and through global partnership efficiencies,” said Tony Douglas, Group CEO, Etihad Aviation Group.
