Oxford University has tipped its hat to Sabre Holding’s air emissions carbon calculator,
calling the tool a help for agencies and corporations to measure flight emissions impact in a socially responsible and cost-effective way. Oxford research said the new calculator is “the most detailed aviation carbon calculator in existence.” The full report, Calculating Carbon Dioxide Emissions Of Flights, is available through Sabre’s Traveler Security and Data Suite (TSDS).
Launched in 2007, TSDS is used around the world by Sabre travel agencies and corporations using GetThere, to determine the impact their travel has had on the environment. Users can view the total volume of carbon emissions produced for air, car and hotel travel across a date range or specific destinations traveled.
In addition to carbon reporting, TSDS also provides traveler security services, and robust agency and corporate travel reporting with up to three years of historical travel, including ticketed and un-ticketed pre-trip data. “The Sabre Holdings model has the potential to be adopted by both aviation offsetting companies and for corporate social responsibility reporting.”
“It’s an honor to be recognized by Oxford University for the quality and accuracy of our data solutions – in this case, our reports on air carbon emissions,” said Tom Klein, executive vice president of Sabre Holdings. “Our tools are designed to help agencies and corporations make more informed decisions about travel by improving traveler security, providing near real-time information about travel patterns, and allowing them to measure the impact of their travel on the environment.”
