Responsible Travel Forum

Location: Scandic Star Hotel, Sollentuna
Date: 2014-10-03
Organization: SBTA and Project ICARUS

We hear more and more talk about the importance of working with duty of care, safety, security and the well-being of travellers. In a survey conducted by SBTA in the spring of 2014, responding Travel managers said that management main focus with regards to TM-related issues was now Risk.

With this in mind, we set out to create a program around these issues. A team of industry experts will come together to discuss the importance of implementing responsible travel practices with a focus on duty of care, safety, security and well-being of travellers.

Participation fee:

SBTA member (or member of other BTA association) 995 SEK excl VAT

The Responsible Business Travel Forum is brought to you by the Swedish Business Travel Association, in association with Project ICARUS, the sustainability programme from the Global Business Travel Association.

About Project ICARUS
Project ICARUS, a GBTA Foundation initiative, was started in 2006 by the Institute of Travel and Meetings (ITM) in the UK. Since that time it has grown to be the most widely recognized and respected Corporate Sustainability/Corporate Social Responsibility program within the global business travel and meeting industry.
The objective is to encourage buyers and sellers of travel and meetings products and services to engage in meaningful conversations about the subject of sustainability and move the industry forward in a constructive and effective manner.
This is a project led by and targeted primarily at national and international travel buyers/managers and their suppliers/intermediaries, who wish to integrate sustainability into the way they manage, run and supply travel and meetings programs.
