Travel booking and information provider Travelport GDS has adopted online carbon-emission measurement tool Carepar.

Travelport announced its marketing alliance with the Hotel Carbon Index Company, which created Carepar, at the Hotel Electronic Distribution Network Association Conference in New Orleans today.

The partnership means that corporate travellers can measure their carbon emissions when using Travelport's 83,000 participating properties, which are booked through the Galileo and Worldspan systems.

Carepar was launched last year and its UK-based founder, Peter Ducker, said: "This initiative by Travelport will lead the hotel sector into a regime of benchmarking and measuring emissions, helping hotels and their guests to calculate their carbon footprints."

Travelport GDS senior vice-president (commercial) Flo Lugli said: "We will continue to build on our strong track record of helping travel companies, corporations and travellers measure and reduce their carbon footprints."
