Evaluate Greenhouse Gas Emissions Profile for Business Travel

October 7, 2013 - 1:25pm



Step 2

Developing a Federal agency's business travel greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions profile first involves getting a better understanding of the nature and patterns of travel within the organization. Not all travel can be avoided or effectively substituted with information technology solutions. By understanding where people are traveling by air, the purpose of travel, and what parts of the organization travel most frequently, the agency will be in a better position to develop solutions and program-level targets.

Specific information that will help to make GHG emission reduction opportunities clearer are described in the following sections about:

  1. Data collection
  2. Data analysis.

Next Step

After evaluating the emissions profile, the next step in GHG mitigation planning for business travel process is to evaluate GHG reduction strategies.
