Travelife launches its hotel sustainability management programme for the corporate travel market

Globally recognised Travelife is entering into the business travel market, with the launch of its hotel sustainability management programme. Travelife is run by ABTA, the UK’s largest travel association.

The programme is being launched on 22nd February 2017 at the Business Travel show in London for Travel Management Companies (TMC’s), corporate travel buyers and Travel Managers. Travelife staff will be at the show to discuss the scheme with TMCs and corporate travel buyers.

Travelife helps deliver in-house Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) targets as well as compliance with other legislation such as the Modern Slavery Act UK and similar legislation which is being introduced around the world.
More and more travellers want to know that the company that they book with and the hotel where they are staying, whether it for leisure or business, is looking after the local environment and the staff of the hotel. 

According to ABTA’s consumer trend survey* a high proportion, 65% of travellers, feel that travel companies should ensure that their trip helps local people and the economy. Travelife is uniquely placed to support TMC’s and corporate travel buyers with their sustainability objectives.

Travelife Commercial Director Sören Stöber commented: “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.”

Travelife will be at the Business Travel Show on stand No. B1060 to discuss how Travelife can support your business.
