Internova Travel Group | January 06, 2023
Internova Travel Group, one of the largest travel service companies in the world, has committed to assisting in the fight against the effects of global climate change and is currently working toward becoming carbon-neutral with its employee travel by the end of 2023.
The company has recently initiated a partnership with Sustainable Travel International. This global organization has more than 15 years of experience developing successful sustainable travel practices and supporting some of the previous year's best carbon offset programs for the travel industry.
To broaden the scope of these efforts, the firm has launched two new programs for clients that will aid them in lowering the emissions caused by their travel.
The first one is the Climate Positive Program, geared toward corporate clients. It intends to assist in evaluating the sustainability initiatives of their businesses, measuring their emissions, formulating strategies to reduce or eliminate those emissions, and effectively communicating with their stakeholders, customers, and employees.
The next one is the Climate Action Program, designed for clients who are interested in leisure travel. It allows them to contribute 1% of the total cost of their trip toward offsetting their emissions. Travelers will also get helpful tips and up-to-date information on the latest efforts to make tourism more sustainable.
The company is committed to giving its travel advisers training on sustainability and holding workshops with travel suppliers to teach them how to make itineraries that are good for the environment. These two initiatives are part of Internova's commitment to the environment.
Internova Travel Group said that as a travel company, it has a special duty to become a strong advocate for the environment. The company intends to protect the world's natural and cultural resources so people can enjoy them for generations.
