Trip.com has launched an integrated carbon
solution to enable customers worldwide to address the CO2
emissions of their travel.

The global travel platform has partnered with
climate-tech company Chooose to offer travellers the option to
calculate and offset their flight’s CO2 emissions by supporting
impactful climate solutions around the world.

For a small cost,
travellers’ offsets will support projects that either reduce,
capture, or avoid CO2 emissions in an amount equivalent to the
flight’s calculated emissions.

The Chooose solution is integrated directly into
the Trip.com’s platform.

Andreas Slettvoll, Chief Executive Officer at
Chooose, said, “We see an increasing demand from individuals and
companies around the world wanting to understand the CO2 emissions
from their travel and to address these emissions through solutions
like carbon removals, offsets and sustainable aviation fuel.
That’s why we are thrilled to team up with Trip.com to offer
integrated climate options as a seamless part of their booking
process, making climate action more accessible for people
worldwide.”

Trip.com and Chooose calculate CO2 emissions based
on factors such as a flight’s distance, capacity and flying time,
in accordance with the latest industry guidelines. This
calculation helps to inform the cost to offset the journey, as
well as guide which itineraries may be producing the least amount
of CO2 per passenger.

Jane Sun, Chief Executive Officer at Trip.com
Group, said, “As part of our mission to lead the global
transformation to modern and more environmentally-responsible
travel, we have partnered with Chooose to contribute towards
highly effective CO2-mitigating projects around the world. This
makes it easier and simpler for Trip.com users to offset their
flight’s CO2 emissions during check-out on our platform and travel
more responsibly.”
