Today, CHOOOSE announced an SAP Concur partnership and the launch of our new CHOOOSE Climate App, a carbon emissions management solution now available on SAP® Concur® App Center in the SAP Concur Endorsed Apps category.
SAP Concur App Center offers 270+ partner applications that connect to and enhance SAP Concur solutions, enabling businesses to optimise travel and spend management programs. SAP Concur Endorsed Apps are a category of solutions reserved for partners with proven customer success or within rapidly growing categories. The CHOOOSE Climate App is one of the first extensions built on SAP Business Technology Platform leveraging SAP Fiori® for the SAP Concur portfolio. CHOOOSE is also one of the first SAP Concur partners to have its endorsed app available on SAP Concur App Center.
«Our goal is to make climate action available for everyone, and so we are delighted to announce that our CHOOOSE Climate App is now one of the first SAP Concur Endorsed Apps,» said Andreas Slettvoll, CEO at CHOOOSE. «Climate App’s integration with Concur® Travel and Concur® TripLink can significantly contribute to accelerating access to climate solutions working to reduce global travel emissions. The integration enables companies worldwide to measure, reduce, and manage their travel-related CO2 emissions, bringing us one step closer to the net-zero society we are all working to achieve.»
Global transportation emissions were responsible for approximately 7.3 billion metric tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in 2020. Annually, aviation accounts for up to 3% of all human-induced emissions, the World Economic Forum has reported. The travel industry is difficult to decarbonise and requires the participation of companies at all levels to make significant improvements.
The Climate App automates travel-related carbon emission measuring and reporting and allows companies to reduce their carbon footprint or address unavoidable emissions by supporting verified, high-impact climate solutions, such as carbon removal, offsetting projects, and Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). Travel emissions are automatically calculated based on the latest industry standards. SAP Concur Endorsed Apps are premium certified by SAP Concur with added security and in-depth testing.
Key benefits of integrating Concur Travel and Concur TripLink with the CHOOOSE Climate App include:
Businesses that use SAP Concur solutions can choose from a portfolio which contains the highest standard climate solutions with proven impact around the globe, vetted by CHOOOSE carbon professionals and certified through internationally recognised standards. The portfolio of climate solutions ranges from renewable energy and nature-based solutions to community-based projects to Sustainable Aviation Fuel.
«You can’t manage what you don’t measure,» said Peter Maier, President, Industries and Customer Advisory, SAP SE. «Now, businesses that use SAP Concur solutions and that are on their journey to become net-zero can measure and compensate their travel-related CO2 emissions with the innovative CHOOOSE Climate App.»
