Thrust Carbon, the leading tech provider of science-based data and intelligence on emissions, is integrated to the TripStax ‘Core’, the central data-processing powerhouse that consumes, manages and enriches a TMC’s corporate client profile, booking and finance data across each module in the TripStax eco-system.

The agreement means that each booking transaction, once collected in the TripStax Core, is sent via API to Thrust Carbon to calculate the carbon emissions of the specific trip, and then returned to The Core for storage. This carbon data can then be applied across relevant TripStax applications used by the TMC, for example added to itineraries via the TripStax Documents module, reporting via TripStax Analytics, as well as invoicing at point of sale. If the TMC makes any changes to the booking transaction prior to travel, The Core re-sends data to Thrust Carbon to provided updated calculations. 

TripStax has also collaborated with Thrust Carbon to identify additional carbon data calculation points and variations for certain airlines and load factors since the post-Covid recovery of the aviation sector. 

Scott Wylie, Chief Technology Officer, TripStax commented: “A major challenge for corporate travel managers is influencing sustainable travel practices as more and more companies move towards net zero carbon targets. Travel managers are looking to their TMC for support in managing this challenge and that starts with best-practice in measuring carbon emissions. Hence it was a priority for us to enhance our technology offering to give our TMC clients access to accurate carbon emissions data. 

“We conducted an in-depth analysis of providers, challenging and checking their measurements by route, flight number, type of aircraft. Thrust Carbon emerged as the clear leader in this process as their methodology is science-based and therefore far more meaningful. We are delighted to have agreed this partnership with Thrust Carbon and to be working with such a like-minded tech innovator to enhance each other’s data capabilities,” said Wylie. 

Mark Corbett, Director of Thrust Carbon, added: “Tackling the climate crisis is the defining challenge of our time, and it requires urgent action. It’s not enough to simply talk about sustainability; we must take bold steps to maximise our impact. And that’s exactly what we’re doing here. By partnering with TripStax, TMCs are able to put best-in-class sustainability intelligence at the fingertips of travel managers around the world, and empower them to make impactful decisions for their programs. With granular and accurate insights plus recommendations, travel managers will be able to make informed choices that lead to game-changing reductions in emissions. Together, we can create a more sustainable future for generations to come”.
