Carlson Wagonlit Travel is first travel organisation in the Benelux to be 100% climate-neutral

29 September 2011 |

Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) achieved zero carbon emissions through a combination of numerous significant internal efficiency measures and carbon offsets purchased through The CarbonNeutral Company.

29th September 2011 Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) is the first travel organisation in the Benelux to be certified totally climate-neutral. This was partly achieved by allowing employees the opportunity to work more frequently from home. The target is that in 2012, 10% of CWT personnel will work an average 3 days per week from home in the Netherlands and Belgium.

Other far-reaching and sustainable internal environmental measures that contribute to curbing greenhouse gas emissions significantly are: an exclusively energy-efficient fleet of lease cars, reduction in paper consumption, energy saving programmes and sustainable purchasing of goods.

The remainder of the greenhouse gas emissions are offset through participation in environmental projects of The CarbonNeutral Company. Recently this company awarded CWT an official certificate to this effect. CWT aims to run its business in a way where sustainable enterprise is totally integrated into everyday practice.

“We are very proud to be the first totally climate-neutral travel organisation operating in Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. CWT continues to strive for a balance between economy, people and the environment”, says Vice President Benelux, Jan Willem Dekker.

The complete policy on Corporate Social Responsibility, or social responsibility and doing business sustainable, is described in the report CWT Responsible. This can be downloaded from the website www.carlsonwagonlit.be.

The CarbonNeutral Company is a climate consultancy organisation operating worldwide, that offers solutions for CO2 reduction & offset and advises and assists in order to come up with a successful approach for environment-related issues connected with travel policy. The organisation participates worldwide in various carbon offset schemes. For further information: carbonneutral.com.
