The Travel Corporation goes ‘hybrid’ to further strengthen its commitment to sustainability

The Travel Corporation (TTC), Australia’s largest independently-owned travel group, has revealed plans to convert its entire fleet of company cars to fully hybrid vehicles.

To support eco-conscious mobility practices, the company has started gradually replacing older, less energy-efficient models in favour of new, environmentally friendly hybrid vehicles. TTC’s commitment means that within a few years, all of its tool-of-trade cars will be featuring hybrid configurations.

This development follows a number of sustainability initiatives introduced by TTC over recent years, many under the auspices of the TreadRight Foundation, a not-for-profit initiative aimed at encouraging sustainable tourism development with the long term vision to ensure the environment remains vibrant for generations to come.

“At TTC, sustainability is one of our highest priorities” said John Veitch, CEO at TTC Australia.

“Our decision to turn to environmentally friendly vehicles is yet another way for us to demonstrate our commitment to practices that contribute to making this planet the best place it can be.”

“We see it as our responsibility to continue to explore initiatives that will further reduce our carbon footprint. Should electric cars become more available in the future, we would definitely consider revising our fleet again” he continued.
