Directravel Announces Availability of CO2 Reporting

August 3, 2009

MAHWAH, N.J., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ – Directravel, a leading corporate travel management company, today announced the availability of two new CO2 tracking reports – the CO2 Air Summary Report and a CO2 Combined (Air/Car/Hotel) Summary Report, available through its reporting package.

These reports were designed in response to client requests for an easy way to track CO2 usage on various domestic and international trips and compare them to alternative travel methods. The Air Summary report includes information on Top 5 Carriers, Class of Service, Long Haul/Short Haul and Total Emissions. The Combined Summary Report contains data on Top 5 Car Rental Cities by CO2, Top 5 Hotel Cities by CO2 and Air CO2 emissions. Both reports provide summary data of Top 5 City Pairs by CO2 usage.

The reports use proprietary algorithms from several carbon reporting companies that are then applied to travel data to produce estimates of the carbon output from travelers’ trips.

“In this environment, we’re all focused on trying to accomplish more with less and this certainly pertains to our impact on the environment. Having said that, keeping track of travelers’ global footprint continues to be a very important issue for many of the companies we work with, as well as to the travel industry on the whole,” said Pat Fragale, president of Directravel. “These reports allow them to chart their CO2 emissions and make more efficient and environmentally-focused travel choices.”

The CO2 Air Summary Report and a CO2 Combined (Air/Car/Hotel) Summary Report are the latest additions to Directravel’s technology offerings, geared to helping clients achieve the most effective use of their travel programs. These reports will be provided on a monthly basis to those clients who opt to include this as part of their reporting package.
