At the meeting on 18 November, 24 organisations including Royal Schiphol Group joined forces to implement policies aimed at making their own business air travel more sustainable. The parties also signed up for the objective of implementing best practices developed for this purpose before 2022. These include:
- Full CO2 compensation for business air traffic through CO2 certificates
- Investing in new technologies such as electric/hybrid flying or synthetic fuels
- Purchasing biofuels for business aviation (lower CO2 emissions per kilometre)
- Travel with direct flights (if possible), even if this leads to higher costs
By implementing these measures, the companies are taking proactive steps to mitigate the environmental impacts of their business air travel, such as CO2 and nitrogen. The pioneering measures introduced by Anders Reizen (Travel Differently) include increasing the sustainability of air travel. At the same time, the coalition is calling on rail companies to increase the frequency of international connections and to reduce travel times to new destinations. The full list of best practices is available on the Anders Reizen website.
The measures have been embraced by: ABN AMRO, Accenture, ANWB, Arcadis, a.s.r., Capgemini, CGI, Deloitte, Eneco, Leaseplan, NS, Philips, PGGM, ProRail, PwC, Renewi, Rijksoverheid, Royal HaskoningDHV, Royal Schiphol Group, Stedin, Strukton, Tauw, Tennet and Vattenfall.
