Copolo joins the US market as a new online travel agency offering a more sustainable approach to travel

July 2, 2021


Copolo, part of the H.I.S. Group, incorporates a seamless climate solution as an integrated part of its platform, enabling passengers to offset carbon emissions from any type of journey as part of Copolo's customer journey.

Copolo enters the US travel market with a model that allows travellers to add climate action as an ancillary when they book their trip. To fulfil the climate initiative, Copolo has partnered with CHOOOSE. With simple steps, customers can ensure that the carbon emissions from flights, accommodations, cars, and cruises are counted for and reduced as part of an integrated booking process.

“We are thrilled to help travellers access the best travel options worldwide,” says Hideo Hatano, Executive Officer / H.I.S. Co., Ltd. “We will continue investing in the most sophisticated systems to maintain our pursuit of excellence and building a better tomorrow. By partnering with CHOOOSE™, we can make a meaningful difference while allowing travellers the opportunity to offset the carbon emissions produced from their journey.”

The carbon offset contribution directly supports CO2-reducing climate projects verified by the most comprehensive and stringent international standard. Travellers will get access to support verified renewable energy projects, contributing to multiple UN Sustainable Development Goals, improving ecological values and social benefits for those hardest hit by climate change.

"We are delighted to team up with Copolo to build travel back better together by enabling global travellers to offset their carbon footprint as an integrated part of the customer journey. Furthermore, developing innovative climate solutions in partnership with Copolo will help scale climate action globally, and their commitment will be a solid contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals", says CEO and founder Andreas Slettvoll.

All travellers who offset their journey will receive a certificate recognizing that their travel footprint has been climate compensated. Copolo will also provide a post-purchase experience to enable its customers to claim, track, and engage with the positive impact they create, providing complete transparency.
