TripIt now shows your flight’s carbon emissions and provides practical ideas on how to reduce or offset its environmental impact.

“Our goal is to help you better understand the environmental impact of all of your flights,” said Jen Moyse, director of product for TripIt from SAP Concur. “That’s why we made it easy for you to see, track, and offset your carbon footprint.”

TripIt now shows you the carbon emissions for your flights, tracks your annual flight emissions, and gives you ways to offset that environmental impact—alongside all your travel plans. TripIt is the first travel organizing app to automatically aggregate flight emissions across providers, post-booking, giving you a holistic view of your air travel footprint.

All this is available within the TripIt app.

With our new Carbon Footprint feature, you can:

  • See your flight’s carbon emissions
  • Track your annual carbon footprint for air travel
  • Offset and reduce your environmental impact, with practical suggestions right in the app

This initiative aligns with SAP’s CSR goals and initiatives, and will be available to all TripIt users (free and Pro)

TripIt calculates your carbon footprint using the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, the same methodology used by American and European government agencies. We take into account factors like distance, flight class, and environmental elements.

To view the carbon emissions for an individual flight, visit the flight’s detail screen and you’ll see the Carbon Footprint section. You can tap on it for more info and for ideas on how to reduce or offset your flight’s footprint.

To view the cumulative carbon emissions for all your flights in a certain year, check out your Travel Stats in the More tab. From there, tap on Carbon Footprint for more info and ideas on how to reduce or offset your footprint.
