Working closely with our global network of suppliers, we can advise and report on the most sustainable options for your group or event, helping you to develop and achieve your own sustainability goals. Using the ISO 20121:2012 standard for Sustainable Event Management as our backbone, we help clients design and manage group movements built on the most sustainable processes, with the ability to measure and report on their impact, enabling continuous improvement.
ISO 20121 practitioner
As an ISO 20121 practitioner we are able to support sports, media and touring organisations wanting to achieve sustainability throughout their supply chain.
Consultation and Advice
As well as managing our own sustainability goals, we offer clients consultation and advice around their travel policies; to ensure they remain current versus what is both possible and practicable when delivering a high-performance travel programme.
Measure, reduce and offset your carbon offset
For clients who have minimised their carbon output and who now want to mitigate the impact of their residual carbon footprint, we offer access to Gold standard carbon-offset capabilities through our partnership with Thrust Carbon, enabling you to reach zero carbon impact as part of your sustainability goals.
Design the most sustainable routing and venues
When designing your multi-stop tour, we can help design the most sustainable routing and venues. For major events we scope a hotel’s sustainability policies as a factor in venue selection, helping you meet your own sustainability goals without impacting performance.
By working together, we can have the greatest positive impact across our clients’ travel and event programme.
With a long heritage in the group travel industry, we have developed a trusted global network of airline, accommodation and ground transport providers and we are working closely with these industry partners to create more sustainable travel movements for our clients, balancing people, planet and profit; whether that is by identifying opportunities to reduce the carbon impact of air travel, or prioritising hotels that can demonstrate effective sustainable management practices.
Supporting a more sustainable stay
Sustainability continues to influence our sports, music and media clients’ decisions around where and how they stay, and it is now forming a vital part of our procurement and contract processes when sourcing accommodation on their behalf.
Hotels across the world are reducing their carbon footprint, implementing a range of eco-friendly practices across products and services, maintenance and supply chains. With ISO 20121:2012 Sustainable Event Management certification, we can help those accommodation suppliers that may need support with the sustainability action needed to win business, whilst enabling a more sustainable stay for our clients.
Sport and travel are both very much a force for good and at Travel Places we want to help clients make better decisions, reduce emissions and encourage working with suppliers that share the same values and beliefs that we do.
