GBTA Sustainability Summit

Radical Collaboration to Achieve a Net Zero Business Travel

Copenhagen

The GBTA Sustainability Initiative’s goal is to empower and incentivize corporates and organisations of all sizes and in all geographies, to start, advance, and accelerate the integration of travel practices that materially reduce business travel emissions, on a joint journey with the travel value chain to reach Net Zero by 2050. 

On 4 November 2024, GBTA will be hosting its Sustainability Summit in Copenhagen. This year, the focus will be on Radical Collaboration to Achieve a Net Zero Business Travel. The Business Travel industry urgently needs to accelerate its climate action, harmonization and standardization efforts, investments, and advocacy work to remain top of mind for our policymakers. 

This one-day, high-level event, will bring together experts, industry, and policy leaders to outline concrete solutions to decarbonize business travel. The Summit will foster connections and exchange by providing a forum for frank discussions about challenges and opportunities to drive climate action in the business travel sector. 

  • The Race to Net Zero: how can this industry lead the transformation 
  • Accelerating Decarbonizing business travel: opportunities for partnerships in driving impactful actions  
  • Standardisation is key: Standardizing sustainability criteria and delivering data transparency 
  • Financing the transition: driving investments alongside ESG performance 
  • Building climate resilience: how to prepare for the impact of climate change on the business travel sector
