Executive Travel Magazine
Is business travelers an enemy of the environment? New products and services are enabling road warriors to think green.
Some of the most innovative travel companies have greened their products and services. And many travelers are seeking out environmentally friendly options. But how much traction does this movement have? We examine trends and what's in store for the future. We also answer our inner skeptics by investigating whether five green travel initiatives are actually valuable: in-flight recycling, hotel water conservation programs, hotel utilities controlled by key cards, hybrid car rentals and carbon offsets. And we tour a LEED–certified hotel to get an insider's look at how and why it's gentler on Mother Nature.
