Voyage Manager has revamped its CO2 emission monitoring, taking it to the next level.
In response to the EU Emissions Trading System, the WBCSD WRI Greenhouse Gas 2004 Protocol and DEFRA’s Environmental Reporting
Guidelines, more and more companies are now reporting their carbon footprint. A number of companies are legally required to
monitor and report the carbon footprint. Other companies and organizations are reporting their emissions and footprint as
part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies. It is also expected that new regulations will be passed that
will require more businesses to monitor their CO2 emissions. According to the DEFRA Guidelines, CO2 monitoring should include
keeping track of the CO2 emissions resulting from employee travel.
One of the features of Voyage Manager’s advanced travel management system is a CO2 emission monitor. This feature automatically
calculates travellers’ carbon footprint based the distance and method of travel, and provides reports to the employer of CO2
emissions, which can be used directly carbon footprint reports. Voyage Manager has now revamped the CO2 emission monitor feature
to increase its user friendliness, accuracy and the level of detail in the reports.
Voyage Manager’s CEO, John Scott, says “We have had CO2 emission monitoring as part of our system for a long time. Following
increased demand from our clients and the new regulations that are likely to be passed, we have updated the feature to better
meet clients’ needs.”
