Making responsible choices for your company travel requires insight, especially if you're the one doing the sustainability reporting. Here's everything you need to know about our carbon calculator and the data we provide for you and your company. 

The framework for our calculations

To use the latest and most accurate data, we use principles produced by the GHG Protocol. They provide the Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard that is used by major companies worldwide.


Our current dataset is based on DEFRA's greenhouse gas reporting conversion factors. We use this data to calculate the emission of each part of your trip. You can download our current emission factors here.


We base our calculations on the following datapoints:

  • Distance traveled
  • Method of transportation
  • The number of people traveling
  • The number of nights
