QBT – First Certified Carbon Neutral Travel Management Company in APAC

December 6, 2016 Business News No Comments Email Email

QBT has announced its recent Carbon Neutral status, as a proactive step to show its commitment to the environment and to operating as an environmentally responsible organisation.

The move to having its net greenhouse gas emissions equal zero involved measuring carbon equivalent emissions and purchasing Carbon Offsets. These offsets are part of a reforestation project in the wheat belt of Western Australia, where over 90% of the land has been cleared for agriculture.

As a part of this, QBT has also partnered with Carbon Neutral (a carbon solutions provider) to provide carbon offsetting programs to its clients. These programs comprise both measurement of emissions and offsetting against a range of reforestation projects globally.

QBT’s Group General Manager, Russell Carstensen said, “QBT is committed to operating our business in an economically, environmentally and socially responsible manner.”

“We strive to lead by example and continuously improve in each of these areas through caring for our employees and our clients. By having a positive social impact on the communities in which we operate, improving environmental performance across all of our business activities and encouraging our employees, clients and suppliers to do the same.”

“Becoming Carbon Neutral is a critical part of our environmental management system and is the first step in creating an environmentally conscious culture and increasing our investment in socially responsible processes.” Russell added.
