American Express Meetings & Events has launched two sustainable meeting and events services to help customers measure and reduce their carbon footprint.

The Sustainable Meetings Programme advisory solution helps clients to develop a sustainability strategy, which includes setting measurable objectives, and reporting on an event’s carbon impact.

The Carbon Neutral Events solution helps organisations reduce, measure and offset meetings and events emissions.

Milton Rivera, vice-president of global business development, global client group & APAC region for American Express Meetings & Events, said: “The world has changed: organisations want smarter travel and meetings and they want to work with responsible, sustainable and inclusive partners who can help achieve them.”

Gerardo Tejado, senior vice-president of value development and general manager for meetings and events at American Express Global Business Travel (Amex GBT), added: “We believe our sustainable meetings and events solutions are game changing. They enable customers to cascade their corporate sustainability goals to their meetings and events and reduce carbon emissions.

The solutions are underpinned by our commitment to high standards of integrity and business ethics, while operating in a sustainable manner. This is incorporated in best practices throughout our operations, services and supply chain.”
