Consultia’s new Destinux Green carbon offsetting functionality was developed in collaboration with ClimateTrade.
Madrid, October 19 2022.- Consultia Business Travel, a Spanish company specialized in end-to-end business travel management, has launched Destinux Green, a functionality allowing companies to offset their carbon footprint on its Destinux platform.
Destinux Green also provides a traceable carbon offsetting certificate, and companies that offset the entirety of the emissions generated over a year can obtain the Destinux Green label issued by Destinux.
Destinux therefore becomes the first corporate travel platform through which a company can verify and offset its carbon footprint, as well as receiving a certificate for this activity, in just one click. Offsetting through Destinux Green can be done by contributing to a selection of environmental and social responsibility projects among which the company can choose.
Destinux Green improves the image of an organization in the eyes of its clients, users and consumers; it saves costs and increases the motivation of environmentally-conscious employees. The application, exclusive to Destinux, has been developed with ClimateTrade and uses blockchain technology, which brings transparency to the entire emissions offsetting process, thus generating trust and ensuring the real impact of carbon offsetting activities. Upon concluding a transaction, an offsetting certificate is issued with information about the chosen project and a traceable blockchain key, as well as the official certificate of cancellation of the credits in its corresponding registry.
“The carbon offset projects available on ClimateTrade are certified by the most reputable global standards and aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals, which guarantees their real impact in the fight against climate change,” explains Francisco Benedito, CEO of the company.
Sustainability is a very important aspect for companies that are increasingly looking for systems that allow them to minimize their environmental impact. In the words of Carlos Martínez, CEO of Consultia Business Travel: “The technology implemented by Destinux makes it easier for organizations to meet their sustainability goals quickly and easily. They can, through an innovative system, offset CO2 emissions by supporting climate action projects and meet their environmental objectives, managing all their business trips in a comprehensive, transparent and sustainable manner.”
