UK business travel

UK business travel (kilometres and tonnes of CO2e)

Business travel data is taken from UK employees’ expense forms for private and company car business travel, and from corporate travel agency statements for rail and air travel. Other travel that is paid through expense claims is not captured, and will therefore be understated.

Compared with 2014 there has been an increase in rail and air travel and a reduction in car travel . This is largely driven by increased travel into new and growing markets
