business tourism and professional travel
The tourism sector alone represents 8% of greenhouse gas emissions in the world. *
The elimination of these emissions is a large-scale project, especially when they come from services
for which we are not directly responsible but which we can influence. Here are some key figures.
* source: Nature climate change, 2019.
700 million tonnes
CO₂ equivalent come from business trips every year.
33% of CO2 emissions
of companies are linked to business trips: business trips, home-office trips, etc.
70% of employees
would prefer to work for a company with a strong environmental strategy.
€ 22 per tonne of CO2
this is the cost of the contribution to carbon neutrality linked to your business trips. The amounts per trip depend on the means of transport you have chosen (for example, trains emit less CO₂ than planes).
6% on average
on the price of the initial ticket: this is the supplement generally requested to contribute to carbon neutrality.
Support concrete projects through your CSR approach
and the contribution to carbon neutrality
Optimizing business travel by contributing to carbon neutrality means providing concrete and measurable assistance for the preservation of the environment and its biodiversity .

About carbon offsetting
The contribution to carbon neutrality allows companies and travelers to reduce their environmental footprint ( greenhouse gas emissions ) during their business trips in France and abroad . The funds collected are donated to support environmental preservation projects.
A carbon footprint is defined as the total amount of greenhouse gases produced to directly or indirectly support human activities, generally expressed in tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent ( CO2eq ).
To calculate the carbon footprint of a company, the method used is the one defined by Ademe. By adding all the CO₂ emissions of a company’s activities (transport, energy consumption, life cycle of services and products, etc.), we obtain a number that corresponds to its Bilan Carbone® . This weight estimate of the quantity of CO2eq emitted is used to identify the most polluting activities in order to apply measurable actions to reduce its impact on the environment .
In terms of legislation, the environmental code makes it mandatory to do a ““Bilan Carbone®” for:
- companies with more than 500 employees in metropolitan France (250 employees overseas)
- public establishments with more than 250 people
- local authorities with more than 50,000 inhabitants
- the French State
The calculation of greenhouse gas emissions from flights is based on criteria established by Ademe. This is an estimate (and not an exact data) which takes into account the following parameters:
- the distance between the departure airport and the arrival airport
- the presence or not of a stopover
- a percentage increase (approximately 5%) added to the great circle distance, also called the “orthodromic distance”
- a fixed quantity of kerosene required for take-off and landing
- passenger class
From these data, a number is obtained corresponding to the quantity of CO₂ emitted per flight, compared to the scale of a passenger.
The carbon price was introduced by a coalition of states and companies in 2014 in order to engage the most polluting actors to start a more eco-responsible transition. This price is reassessed regularly and currently amounts to around € 22 / tonne of CO₂ emitted. This price may also vary depending on the suppliers investing in certified projects supported by the contribution to carbon neutrality, for example.
To find out more about how the carbon price is calculated, visit the website of the Ministry of Ecology.
No, currently it is not possible to deduct carbon credits from taxes.
If your company is based abroad, please consult a tax advisor to verify that your local tax regulations provide for the deduction of contributions from corporate tax.
About Supertripper and GoodPlanet
As a Supertripper customer, you can contribute to the carbon neutrality of your business trips directly from our platform. The contribution is made through a calculation made from the greenhouse gas emissions linked to your business trips .
This approach is part of our partnership with the GoodPlanet Foundation, chaired by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. A benchmark foundation in France and around the world, it accompanies and supports projects contributing to sustainable development or promoting reduction and sequestration of greenhouse gas emissions .
When finalizing the reservation of a business trip on Supertripper, you have the option of checking a “ Contribute to carbon neutrality ” box. Based on the calculation established by Ademe (see the question “How is the carbon price calculated?), A price supplement is applied to your reservation, making it possible to finance associations with an environmental vocation. This supplement is € 22 per tonne of CO₂ emitted.
This amount depends on the means of transport used (a flight emits more CO₂ than a train journey). Taking into account your entire trip (for example, flight + rental car + hotel), count an additional 6% on average on top of the total cost of the trip. Supertripper does not take any service charges and donates the full amount to our partner the GoodPlanet Foundation.
On your Supertripper personal space, you can consult the greenhouse gas emissions achieved by your entire company or by yourself at any time. These are a good indicator to know your impact on the environment. They can also help you choose softer modes of transport for your next trips (taking the train rather than the plane for example.)
You also receive a monthly report, the Bilan Carbone® of your business trips, which summarizes the emissions data per trip.
Emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) related to air travel are not the only ones to be taken into account by Supertripper. You can contribute to the carbon neutrality of all GHG emissions linked to your business trips .
Our partner, the GoodPlanet Foundation, integrates all the CO des-generating factors as much as possible (and not just the release of kerosene for flights, for example) to provide the most precise data possible.
Important: for each calculation, it is an estimate and not an exact data.
Here are some examples of projects the GoodPlanet Foundation is currently working on:
- recycling waste into compost, in Madgascar, Togo and Cameroon
- the construction of solar cookers in Bolivia
Note that new projects are regularly launched. Details of projects supported by the GoodPlanet Foundation are available on this map .
By committing to Supertripper, you can become an agent of change by supporting projects to preserve, reforest and help maintain biodiversity. Because traveling is not at odds with respect for the environment, contributing to the carbon neutrality of one’s business trips is above all a civic act. Almost painless and at the same time engaging for the company, the contribution to carbon neutrality is an easy and concrete first step to reduce the environmental impact of your company . It is also an excellent way to improve your brand as an employer, when we know that 78% of employees say they are ready to stay in their company if it becomes more environmentally friendly.
