According to the World Resources Institute, air travel is a significant source of global emissions and is predicted to account for 12-27% of global emissions by 2050. Air travel emissions are increasing 70% faster than initially expected by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It is estimated that business travel represents about 15-20% of global travel. Organizations are hence looking to reduce their business travel carbon footprint.
