Abta-backed sustainability scheme seeks support

The Abta-backed Travelife hotel sustainability management scheme is seeking to attract support from the business travel sector.

The programme is being introduced today (Wednesday) to travel management companies, corporate travel buyers and travel managers at the Business Travel Show in London.

Travelife helps deliver in-house corporate social responsibility (CSR) targets as well as compliance with other legislation such as the modern slavery act and similar legislation which is being introduced around the world.

Travelife staff will be at the show to discuss the scheme with TMCs and corporate travel buyers.

Travelife commercial director Sören Stöber said: “Sustainability has become increasingly important to corporate travel buyers, travellers and TMC’s and we feel that the time has come for Travelife to enter the business travel market.

“The Travelife hotel certification can provide reassurance that contracted hotels have an effective sustainability management system in place.”

Abta’s last consumer trend survey found that 65% of travellers feel that travel companies should ensure that their trip helps local people and the economy.
