Expedia says it is offering corporations a first in carbon offsets

Expedia® Corporate Travel says it will be the first global corporate travel agency to roll out a carbon offset program to its corporate travel customers.

Expedia partnered with TerraPass, a leading retailer of green house gas reduction projects, to offer environmentally-conscious businesses the ability to both calculate the amount of carbon dioxide their employees' business travel creates and buy the corresponding amount of carbon offsets to balance it.

The new program is available to Expedia® Corporate Travel customers globally. Expedia says it will also make its own travel program carbon neutral by the end of the year through the purchase of TerraPass carbon offsets.

Said Jean-Pierre Remy, president of Expedia® Corporate Travel:

"We are committed to making a positive impact on business travel, by implementing our own green travel policy, as well as through industry advocacy for and the promotion of green travel policies.”
