AMSTERDAM—BookDifferent.com, the first and leading site that allows consumers and businesses to make informed sustainable travel decisions, has launched its Corporate Travel Tool for Travel Management Companies (TMCs).
BookDifferent.com is a social enterprise that provides users with the latest data-driven and evidenced-based information on a hotel’s commitment to sustainability in an easy-to-understand way. There are more than 7,000 eco-certified accommodations on BookDifferent.com that have received one or more third-party certifications. Users can also find details on the carbon footprint of all 1.1 million accommodations.
The Corporate Travel Tool gives TMCs several options for accessing this information as a data add-on to their current systems, allowing their customers to seamlessly choose and book properties that reduce their environmental footprint.
“More and more companies are integrating sustainability into their business decisions and are incorporating travel into their yearly sustainability reporting,” said Lonneke de Kort, Founder and CEO of BookDifferent.com. “We’ve seen an increased demand for the kind of transparency that our platform provides, so we developed the Corporate Travel Tool to give TMCs and their customers quick and easy access to the information they need to ‘green’ their travel policies.”
Recognizing its position as an international leader in the sustainable travel industry, BookDifferent.com was presented with the 2018 Sustainable Travel Award on January 27 at TravMagazine’s Reisgala in Noordwijk, The Netherlands. BookDifferent.com was one of three finalists selected by a jury, which included TravMagazine Chairman Theo de Reus. The winner was then determined by public votes on the TravMagazine website.
