Air Travel Green Toolkit - Icarus -

Online toolkit to green air travel and aviation, transportation management for corporate travel

Find green business solutions
online tools for energy management of air travel A university research group has created this air travel toolkit to encourage greener business travel. Omega is a UK government funded research group comprised of nine universities, government departments and members of the Aviation Environment Federation.

Project ICARUS was established by ITM to promote carbon reduction in travel management programmes throughout the UK business travel industry. The project is led by and targeted primarily at travel buyers/managers as any movement to reduce carbon emissions needs to be focused on this community. Project ICARUS was conceived after the ITM conference in 2006, when a number of leading industry figures and journalists all independently discussed their concerns with ITM about a lack of leadership on Climate Change in business travel management.

After its initial focus on Carbon Emissions, the project will look at other areas of CSR, such as other greenhouse gas emissions, duty of care and sustainable procurement in due course. The project group has set about creating a plan of action to firstly inform buyers and suppliers of our environmental situation and the action they could take, and secondly to provide practical guidance and assistance for travel buyers to start on the environmental road.
