Sustainability and your corporate travel in 2024. We can help you make those initial first steps towards a more sustainable approach to corporate travel and if you want to ensure your travel policy is fit for the future. There is no denying that there has been a noticeable awakening of the world’s conscience when it comes to our impact on the environment and the movement is gathering more and more momentum as time continues. As a result, there is an increasing amount of expectation being placed on corporate organisations to address their own environmental footprint; expectation from customers who are demanding more social responsibility, expectation from the government in the form of legislation and expectation from employees, who want to know that they’re part of a company that cares about the future of the environment. Call your usual ATPI Client Relationship expert for a discussion about how to add sustainability to your travel policy in a practical way.

Many clients who qualify for APEC cards will find that their cards have expired. If you a have new passport you do need to reapply for your card. Keep in mind the application process is around six months.
