Impact Hub and Goodwings Partner to Remove Carbon from the Atmosphere

Vienna, February 22, 2022. Impact Hub proudly announces a partnership with sustainable hotel booking platform, Goodwings. Why? To take climate action. How? By better understanding, reducing and removing its travel-related carbon emissions — at scale.

Petr Skvaril, Partnerships Director at Impact Hub, says “This partnership will allow us to better understand and manage our carbon footprint and remove our travel-related emissions from the atmosphere. We are very keen to promote this opportunity to our members and partners, thousands of small and growing businesses around the world” — to facilitate them to travel Net Zero by booking their travels through the Goodwings platform.

This partnership will allow us to better understand and manage our carbon footprint and remove our travel-related emissions from the atmosphere”.

Together, we aim to mitigate the negative impact of climate change and help to meet the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming below 2°C by 2050.

Christian Møller-Holst, CEO & Founder of Goodwings explains, “Flying, staying in hotels and even eating. Greenhouse gasses are emitted in almost all aspects of travel and tourism, which are responsible for nearly 10% of the world’s carbon footprint. These emissions have an extremely negative effect on the environment. Compensating them, by supporting green energy projects, protecting forests and biodiversity or improving waste management is great, but not enough. We must verifiably remove our emissions from the atmosphere to limit global warming and reduce the worst impacts of climate change.”

We must verifiably remove our emissions from the atmosphere to limit global warming and reduce the worst impacts of climate change.”

The 24,000+ Impact Hub members likely emit around 100,000 tons of carbon yearly through their business travels alone, close to 1m tons of carbon before 2030. This partnership aims to remove a large part of that amount. Goodwings is the only travel platform that calculates, reports and pays to remove its clients’ travel emissions — and offers Impact Hub members and employees discounts on subscription-based memberships.

With this partnership, Impact Hub aims to invite even more individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses to manage and reduce their travel-related carbon footprint and necessary trips to become Net Zero, thus contributing their two key environmental goals:

  • Bring CO2 emissions to zero by 2050 to stay within the small remaining carbon budget for limiting global warming to 1.5°C (UN).
  • Transform our food and agricultural systems to achieve healthy people and a healthy planet.
