SBTi-compliant ways to reduce with Goodwings

Business travel, as it should be
1. Reduce your travel

Goodwings is the only Travel Management System that doesn't make revenue off your bookings, to align our financial interest with the planet's. Our system will nudge your team towards bundling trips and traveling less

3. Be selective with suppliers

CO2 emissions data is available before you book, so travellers can choose the most sustainable airlines. Admins can set preferred airlines and even CO2 emissions limits on all bookings as part of the travel policy

5. Choose low-emission routes 

Short flights create a disproportionate amount of emissions. Set policy rules requiring car or rail travel for trips shorter than a distance of your choice

2. Switch transport (rail vs. air)

Goodwings suggests rail options even when users search for flights (when possible) to encourage more sustainable choices. You can even set a company preference for rail through automatically-enforced travel policies

4. Approve classes of travel

Reduce your emissions by setting a preference for flying economy in the travel policy, and choose the level of enforcement you deem appropriate: Suggested, allowed with approval, or even hidden from search results

6. Use alternative fuels

Instead of using the commissions from your bookings as profits, Goodwings uses them to pay for biofuel - which counts as a reduction under the SBTi Aviation Guidance


Biofuel: an SBTi-compliant carbon reduction

The SBTi's Aviation Guidance document dedicates an entire section to how Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) may be used as a carbon reduction in your accounting.*

Goodwings uses the "direct purchase" method described in the guidance.

Goodwings uses the "Book and Claim" method

Goodwings meets or exceeds the four requirements outlined in the SBTi guidance that comprises the "book and claim" method:

  • Provide reasonable proof that the SAF has actually been used
  • Show evidence that the SAF used offers environmental benefits over standard jet fuel
  • Prove a chain of custody from the SAF supplier to the airline, to the business traveler
  • Include full accounting of Well-to-Wake emissions of the biofuel in your scope 3 reporting

How "Book and Claim" works with Goodwings

Here’s how Goodwings meets the “Book and Claim” criteria:

  • Book: You book your travel with Goodwings and we purchase the sustainable aviation fuel from our supplier on your behalf
  • Supply: The SAF goes into a tank at an airport somewhere in the world
  • Delivery: The SAF goes into an aircraft (+ is used on a flight)
  • Claim: Your company can claim the benefits towards your Scope 3 reduction targets 

We provide all of this documentation when the SAF has been put into operation with a certificate of purchase, environmental benefits (inc. well to wake emissions) of SAF and third-party verified chain of custody of the SAF.
