A ‘sustainability cloud’ is being introduced by Tui Travel to help the group track and analyse sustainability performance across its 240 brands.
The cloud will allow the company to standardise the collation and consolidation of environmental data from more than 400 different sources, enabling it to meet carbon reporting requirements and identify potential efficiency savings.
A standardised reporting procedure will also make it easier to run both external and internal reports across the group, while enabling it to access performance statistics on a real-time basis.
The move is latest step in an on-going commitment to sustainable holidays and will allow Tui to assess the sustainability performance of individual hotels, airlines or major premises across the group.
The sustainability cloud can be operated in six languages to enable accurate use worldwide.
Group environmental manager James Whittingham said: “This is the first time we will capture all this data in one place.
“The sustainability cloud will allow us to track and monitor our sustainability performance right across the group.
“Going forward, the intelligence gained will help us to improve our sustainability business performance.
“The reporting interface gives us a robust, fully auditable model, allowing us to run reports and pull relevant data on-demand, making us more accountable to our customers and enabling more in-depth analysis of our own performance.”
Peter Grant, chief executive of supplier CloudApps, added: “The sustainability cloud will allow Tui Travel to focus on its business of providing leisure travel in over 180 countries and serving more than 30 million customers, safe in the knowledge they will be able to efficiently meet environmental reporting standards with accuracy.”
