Less flights for business travel

Less flights for business travel

What changes would you like to see in Session 6? The pandemic has shown that events and meetings can be done digitally, so there should be more control over the number of flights being authorised to attend business meetings and events, particularly if the host organisation has digital attendance as an option How can this help reduce the Parliament’s environmental impact and embrace sustainability? Less flights, less contribution to damaging emissions

Points

Emissions absolutely have to be cut. Technology such as Teams and Zoom has made it easy for anyone to participate in a meeting without being there and this should be chosen above travel whenever possible.

Flights within the UK should be banned, flights within Europe limited and international flights only possible having gone through a high level sign off process.
