As a global travel management company, we place a huge emphasis on how the travel miles of our own people impacts on the environment. It is something we take extremely seriously and is why we offset all of the carbon emissions of staff travel. FCM’s cost per tonne to offset is £2.50, which we believe to be the lowest offset rate in the market.
The specially-developed FCM Carbon Footprint Calculator takes reporting to a whole new level of accuracy, not focusing on averages but on specific routes and airlines and it accounts for all major GHG (CO2, N2O, CH4) and radiative forcing. This information is also available to FCM clients and thanks to our links with environmental groups, we can provide them with option to offset emissions related to their business travel services.
In addition, we are a contributing member of the U.N. Global Compact, a United Nations initiative to encourage businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies and to report on their implementation. It is focused on Human Rights, Labour, Environment and Corruption.
