Mission Zero helps you identify and select more sustainable travel booking choices by showing the carbon emissions associated with a traveller’s journey selections. You can prioritise lower emission options such as economy seats and hybrid or electric vehicles in your recommended Itinerary.
Integrated Carbon Offset
Mission Zero is powered by BlueHalo® Climate Action Technology from Tasman Environmental Markets (TEM). It provides an integrated carbon offset program to calculate travel CO2-e emissions, enable carbon offsetting per trip, and direct funds for carbon offsets to world-class, impactful environmental projects. Corporate travellers will see a calculation of the carbon impact and an associated offset amount on the traveller’s booking confirmation screen, reassuring them their flights have been calculated based on live data seamlessly integrated into BlueHalo. Additional calculations can be performed by BlueHalo to measure accommodation and car hire post journey, which then become visible in the Carbon Management Platform (CMP).
We have partnered with carbon offset specialists Tasman Environmental Markets (TEM) to support travellers and businesses in making these more sustainable travel choices. Through this partnership, Zeno customers gain access to TEM’s risk-managed carbon offset solutions and world-class technology to instantly calculate and offset the emissions for each journey. TEM’s carbon market projects are verified to international standards and deliver measurable benefits to people and the planet.
Don’t just see what’s possible – actively offset your corporate travel
Companies around the globe recognise they need to do more to reduce their carbon footprints, particularly when it comes to business travel.
Wanting to be more sustainable is easy — putting it into practice can be a lot harder.
We want to help you get your travel program on a path to net zero carbon emissions by making it easier to take the first steps. Our guide outlines five important ways you can increase the sustainability of business travel with Mission Zero.
One carbon offset represents one metric tonne of greenhouse gas emissions reduced or removed from the atmosphere. A carbon offset is created by either a) removing one tonne of emissions from the atmosphere by for example planting forests, or b) preventing one tonne of emissions from reaching the atmosphere by for example replacing a fossil-fuel burning power plant with a wind farm.
As planes fly they burn fuel that releases greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. We have calculated the emissions for each flight offered by a carrier and as a passenger you can offset your share of these emissions. We then pass your offset contribution to verified carbon offset projects around the world that mitigate climate change, protect wildlife and nourish communities.
The Zeno Mission Zero offset program offers portfolios of investments verified to the highest international standards, that deliver measurable benefits to people and the planet. These have been tailored to business travel customers and can be invested in alongside your general business operations offsets.
Zeno Mission Zero provides customers with a choice between two high impact project portfolios:
Australia, New Zealand & Global Portfolio
No, the offset is managed at a corporate level. Travelers are able to see the carbon offset calculation at the time of booking along with the environmental programs that the offset portfolio is investing in.
Zeno will only offset the emissions from your booking after a trip has occurred to allow for any travel changes or cancellations
Customers can access their offsetting reporting through the BlueHalo ‘Neso’ reporting suite. Within Neso, you can download reports on your organization's previous carbon calculations and the volumes of offsetting done to date. Customers can also access their formal retirement certificates as proof of their commitment to carbon neutral travel.
Yes, these enhancements are currently part of the production suite being coordinated by Serko and TEM and will be released at a later date.
