We believe it is our responsibility to lessen the impact our company has on the environment, and Travel and Transport Ultramar, as part of Travel and Transport, has implemented countless sustainability initiatives and environmentally responsible business practices designed to do just that.
We can assist your company in lessening your impact on the environment by directly reporting carbon emissions. Our client-focused reports provide the data needed to suggest aircraft and other travel options with low emission rates.
Reports, invoices and other documents are available via email, the web or mobile app. Client travel profiles are updated online and travelers and arrangers can take online surveys.
Travel and Transport believes that we have a great responsibility to care for our environment, and we share our customers’ commitment to increasing efficiency and reducing factors contributing to pollution. This program is designed to emphasize and promote awareness of and participation in corporate social responsibility efforts and environmental initiatives. A part of this, Travel and Transport employees meet to discuss future initiatives that could lessen our environmental impact - this includes reducing waste and encouraging recycling and other sustainable practices.
Some examples include minimizing paper use and conserving energy whenever possible, as well as recycling aluminum, paper, and plastic in each of our offices. The Travel and Transport family strives to improve the environment in which we all live, work and travel.
We’re pleased to offer a variety of green meeting solutions that promote sustainability and waste reduction. Travel and Transport incorporates our clients’ environmental considerations throughout all aspects of the meeting planning process, from sourcing green facilities and sustainable, socially-responsible catering, to methods of offsetting carbon emissions and integrating recycling.
As a sign of our resolve to provide our clients with environmentally responsible meeting options, we have designated key Travel and Transport staff members to serve as members of the Green Meeting Industry Council, a professional meeting association focused on advancing sustainability in the meetings industry.
