Carbon offsets on preferred terms are being offered to American Express Global Business Travel (GBT) clients from non-profit organisations Carbonfund.org Foundation and Carbon Footprint.

Companies can choose which offset activity they wish to support from a variety of project types, price points and locations worldwide.

Each available project is independently verified and validated, according to GBT.

Clients will receive a donation e-receipt for their payment amounts, as well as a customised e-certificate showing the quantity of carbon offsets purchased and their donations.

GBT chief risk and compliance officer Si-Yeon Kim said: “Carbon transparency is top of the agenda for our business partners globally as we all collectively prepare for a low-carbon future.

“We’re proud to partner with Carbonfund.org and Carbon Footprint to offer businesses a credible, reputable, and effective way to go carbon neutral with an end-to-end offsetting solution to help them meet their carbon targets as part of their broader sustainability strategy.”

GBT already partners with Carbonfund.org to achieve its own sustainability goals by offsetting 100% of its annual business travel emissions from 2019 and pledging carbon neutrality for the future.
