Voyage Manager has revamped its CO2 emission monitoring, taking it to the next level.
Voyage Manager CO2 emission monitor revamped
In response to the EU Emissions Trading System, the WBCSD WRI Greenhouse Gas 2004 Protocol and DEFRA’s Environmental Reporting Guidelines, more and more companies are now reporting their carbon footprint. A number of companies are legally required to monitor and report the carbon footprint. Other companies and organizations are reporting their emissions and footprint as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies. It is also expected that new regulations will be passed that will require more businesses to monitor their CO2 emissions. According to the DEFRA Guidelines, CO2 monitoring should include keeping track of the CO2 emissions resulting from employee travel.
One of the features of Voyage Manager’s advanced travel management system is a CO2 emission monitor. This feature automatically calculates travellers’ carbon footprint based the distance and method of travel, and provides reports to the employer of CO2 emissions, which can be used directly carbon footprint reports. Voyage Manager has now revamped the CO2 emission monitor feature to increase its user friendliness, accuracy and the level of detail in the reports.
Voyage Manager’s CEO, John Scott, says “We have had CO2 emission monitoring as part of our system for a long time. Following increased demand from our clients and the new regulations that are likely to be passed, we have updated the feature to better meet clients’ needs.”
