Sustainability

BizAway cares about the planet and is actively involved in sustainability.

At BizAway, sustainability is not just an added value, but a topic that is very close to our hearts.
BizAway is the first TMC to obtain B-Corp certification, a recognition for high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency, with a total score of 92.8.
We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of business travel through innovative and responsible solutions.
We offer you various ways to offset the CO2 emissions produced by your trips, such as donations to Eden Reforestation Projects or through the Carbon Credit system thanks to Green Future Project (GFP) initiatives. Thanks to this offset, you will be able to add the certificate to your company’s sustainability report.

With Eden Reforestation Projects we plant mangrove trees

BizAway is extremely proud of its partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects, a non-profit organisation actively fighting poverty and pollution by creating new mangrove plantations in large areas devastated by deforestation in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Nepal, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique and Kenya.
This plant is able to absorb over 308 kg of CO2 during its lifetime, 2 to 4 times more than other tropical species.
The local communities involved in the cultivation and management of the plantations also benefit from the initiative. In this way, the local residents are finally able to earn a fair and stable income to support themselves and their families, and have access to proper education and medical care.

A few cents to offset business travel emissions

BizAway is the first platform to have integrated an automatic CO2 compensation system, using a calculator developed in collaboration with the Lufthansa Innovation Hub (LIH) to quantify emissions from business travel.

During the booking process, will be indicated the amount of carbon dioxide produced. In addition, advanced calculation algorithms also indicate the monetary compensation needed to offset the pollution produced. For every €0.10 donated, Eden Reforestation Projects will plant a mangrove.

Offset the environmental impact of your bookings with the carbon credit system

We collaborate with Green Future Project (GFP), an Italian climate tech company, to offer you the opportunity to offset the CO2 from your trips through the carbon credit mechanism. GFP is an officially accredited partner by Verra that purchases Carbon Credits directly from project developers.
By choosing to offset through these projects, you will receive a certificate issued directly by Verra (with a traceable serial number) that attests to your commitment to the environment.

How does it work?

Calculation of the CO2 Footprint

Carbon emissions are generated by your travels, and the CO2 footprint is calculated through the BizAway platform.

Purchase of Carbon Credits

Purchase, at your convenience time through our partner GFT, Carbon Credits equivalent to the tons of CO2 generated.

Project Selection

Select the project to support at the price per ton of CO2 established for each.

Project Financing

Your contribution funds Verra-certified projects that conserve and restore forests, generate clean and renewable energy.

Offset your CO2

These projects absorb CO2 from the atmosphere or reduce emissions, thereby offsetting your own emissions.

CO2 Offset Certificate

GFP issues you an official certificate directly from Verra. It contains a unique serial number demonstrating that the purchased Carbon Credit has been retired. Additionally, you can use this certificate for your company’s sustainability report.
