Gbta aquires Icarus
GBTA has announced the new acquisition of Project ICARUS from the United Kingdom's Institute of Travel and Meetings (ITM). This acquisition will allow for the creation of the travel industry's first ever global sustainability program. Project Icarus was established eight years ago by ITM with a goal to encourage the travel buyer and supplier community to take action to address sustainability issues within their own companies. In the European Union, Project Icarus is now the definitive source of information, education and support for sustainability issues in business travel and meetings. Its four key components include: encouraging reductions in carbon emissions; developing an understanding of the wider sustainability issues; providing educational programs and events specialising in sustainability; and recognising companies who have adopted these best practices.
