bic event

The Global Business Travel Association is fully embracing its mission to help the business travel industry create a positive impact and a better future for people and the planet at its upcoming GBTA Convention 2022, August 14–17, at the San Diego Convention Center.
During the event, GBTA will unveil its first-ever Sustainability Pavilion as well as a new Sustainability Toolkit delivering insights, tools, and best practices to empower industry professionals to create sustainable business travel programmes for their companies and the travellers they serve. Additionally, the convention itself will be “going greener.” Onsite efforts include reducing waste and facilitating recycling and composting; encouraging climate-friendly transportation options; providing a plant-based lunch for thousands of attendees; and even eliminating 14,600 square yards of carpet.
“In 2021, we launched our GBTA Sustainability Program with the important objective of not only educating and advocating for a greener way forward for business travel, but also making it a long-term goal and commitment for the association itself.  There is no better place to deliver on that than at the world’s largest gathering of the global business travel industry, the 2022 GBTA Convention,” said Delphine Millot, Senior Vice President-Sustainability, GBTA.
