Travalyst chief executive officer Sally Davey: “As the newest member of the Travalyst coalition, Travelport will bring invaluable knowledge and expertise in helping us drive mass adoption of sustainability standards with its integral role connecting agencies and suppliers.
"Our shared commitment to industry-wide collaboration and simplifying how information about sustainable offers is shared and reported will be a tremendous asset to the travel agency community.”
Travelport recently established a new sustainability office within its product strategy team, which will focus on prioritising sustainability across product roadmaps and future development.
The new sustainable shopping and reporting features will begin to roll out in 2023 and will help travel retailers become more informed so they can easily book the most eco-friendly options for their travellers.
It will also explore opportunities to combat challenges with data integration and neutralising the negative impacts of emissions.
