VDR Innovation Award 2024

The VDR Conference for Business Travel & Mobility Management 2024 in Frankfurt was a remarkable event, bringing together top innovators in the business travel sector. Five outstanding companies showcased their groundbreaking solutions, and we are honored to be one of the two winners, alongside Unlocked Data.

“We’re thrilled to win the VDR Innovation Award 2024! This is a huge recognition of our work to help businesses cut air travel emissions by helping them track, report and change their business travel habits.

This award goes out to our fantastic team, partners, investors, and amazing clients who not only enjoy a seamless booking experience but also support the move towards decarbonizing air travel.”

Christian Møller-Holst, CEO of Goodwings

The VDR Innovation Award recognizes our unwavering commitment to tackling some of the travel industry's biggest challenges:

  • Inconsistent CO2 emission data that makes it hard to track the full scope of company travel emissions

  • Lack of integrated solutions that accelerate behavioural changes to reduce emissions

  • Dependency on fossil jet fuels

At Goodwings, our mission is to transform the way businesses approach travel by integrating carbon reduction directly into their travel booking processes. Our innovative platform not only offers seamless booking experiences but also empowers companies to offset their travel emissions through Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

Currently, 99.9% of flights are powered by these fuels, making the push for Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) more critical than ever. Producers like Neste are eager to ramp up production but need clear signals of demand. At Goodwings, we are dedicated to driving this demand, facilitating the shift towards more sustainable travel options.

This award also underscores the spirit of collaboration within the business travel community. We're thrilled to celebrate this win alongside Unlocked Data and commend all the innovators who presented their groundbreaking solutions at the conference. Your creativity and dedication inspire us all, and together, we are reshaping the future of business travel.

We are incredibly grateful to VDR for this recognition and to Patrick W. Diemer for the opportunity to share our vision. This award not only strengthens our resolve but also confirms our commitment to a more sustainable future for business travel. A heartfelt thank you to our clients, partners, and the entire Goodwings team for making this achievement possible. Here’s to more innovations and milestones ahead!
