Sustainable Travel International launches embeddable travel carbon calculator for use on any website

Seattle, WA (April 13, 2022) – Today, Sustainable Travel International released an embeddable carbon footprint calculator for calculating and offsetting travel emissions. Now, any company can power carbon offsetting directly from their own website. 

This new technology expands upon Sustainable Travel International’s suite of business climate solutions, providing a free and simple mechanism for companies to offer their customers high quality carbon offsets. Once embedded, visitors can use the calculator to calculate their travel emissions and purchase carbon offsets from Sustainable Travel International. In addition to flights, users can offset other high emissions travel activities including cruises, vehicles, liveaboards, yachting, and private jet charters. 

The new, embeddable calculator can be added to any website in minutes via an iFrame without writing any code. Companies have the option to customize the calculator’s color scheme to match their brand and can choose which sections to display. To ensure an optimal user experience, the calculator is designed to be responsive and will automatically adjust to fit any screen width. 

Offsets purchased through the calculator will be channeled through Sustainable Travel International to support impactful climate projects such as forest protection, clean cookstoves, or wind farms around the world. These projects balance out emissions while fighting climate change by sequestering carbon from the atmosphere or preventing future emissions from happening. Sustainable Travel International carefully vets every project they support, ensuring they comply not only with the most rigorous standards for carbon offsetting but deliver considerable community or environmental benefits beyond carbon reduction. 

With a 15+ year track record of helping businesses and individuals mitigate their carbon footprint, Sustainable Travel International is leading the way towards net zero travel and advancing climate action in tourism. The release of the embeddable calculator follows the launch of Sustainable Travel International’s all-new travel carbon footprint calculator and comes amidst a growing demand for climate conscious travel, with 69% of travelers committed to reducing or offsetting the carbon footprint of their trip.

“We are excited to provide this new technology which will empower more companies to engage their stakeholders in carbon neutral travel and scale-up climate financing,” said Paloma Zapata, CEO of Sustainable Travel International. “We look forward to continuing to innovate and provide practical and transformative solutions that drive tourism towards net zero emissions.” 

In addition to the embeddable calculator, Sustainable Travel International is also making their API available, enabling companies to integrate carbon footprint measurement and offsetting into their existing systems.
