This partnership marks a significant stride toward sustainable travel and eco-friendly tourism.

Introducing Orbit Offset: A Revolution in Sustainable Travel

Through the Orbit Enterprise platform, powered by Kudos, Orbit World Travel introduces Orbit Offset, an innovative feature integrated into Orbit’s sustainable travel program. This cutting-edge feature empowers businesses to effortlessly offset emissions generated by air travel, accommodations, and car rental. It offers a straightforward and impactful approach to proactively manage environmental footprints while facilitating eco-conscious travel choices.

World Tourism Day Launch: A Perfect Match​

The timing couldn’t be more impeccable, as this announcement coincides with World Tourism Day, celebrated globally with the theme “Tourism & Green Investments.” Orbit World Travel is proud to be at the forefront of the sustainable travel movement, launching Orbit Offset on this special occasion.

“Travel is responsible for 8% of world carbon emissions, and corporate travel is a major part of this,” says Orbit World Travel’s Founding Partner and Director Lisa Story. “We’re excited to be able to offer this solution to our clients so that they can understand their carbon footprint, take action to reduce it, and offset what remains. Orbit Enterprise, powered by Kudos and with Sustainable Travel International have delivered a powerful set of tools for the corporate travel industry.”

Key Features of Orbit Sustainability program include:

  • Individual and Corporate Measurement: Analyse emissions at the individual, departmental, or company level.
  • Industry Benchmarking: Compare your carbon footprint with similar industries to make informed decisions.
  • Comprehensive Emissions Offset: Offset carbon emissions for air travel, accommodations, and rental cars seamlessly from the Orbit Enterprise platform.

Orbit Offset purchases support Sustainable Travel International’s curated portfolio of high quality climate projects. This includes a mix of forestry, energy, and blue carbon projects that remove or reduce emissions around the world. These projects allow companies to go beyond internal emissions reductions, accelerating the global net zero transition by preventing or reversing the loss of nature’s carbon sinks and reducing reliance on fossil fuels.

A Commitment to Sustainability Beyond Emissions

Orbit Offset supports sustainable development beyond climate action, contributing to the preservation of biodiversity, strengthening indigenous land rights, improving health and sanitation, and creating opportunities for local communities. All projects are vetted by  rigorous third-party standards and Sustainable Travel International’s proprietary due diligence process, ensuring scientifically-proven emissions reductions and meaningful impacts beyond CO2 reduction.

“Corporate travel managers are time strapped. They can’t spend a lot of time figuring out their impact and how to address it,” says Paul Bennett, board chair at Sustainable Travel International. “With Orbit Enterprise, Kudos has built a dashboard that makes that footprint very clear, while our API makes addressing it a straightforward process.”
