Green Carpet is a SaaS-based platform that seamlessly captures, monitors, and reports business travel emissions in line with global ESG reporting standards.

India, October 16, 2023: As part of its innovative Green Carpet initiative, Thomas Cook (India) Limited, India’s leading omnichannel travel services company, and LTIMindtree [NSE: LTIM, BSE: 540005], a global technology consulting and digital solutions company, have inked an agreement with Eurolife FFH, a leading insurance group based in Greece, servicing over 500,000 customers with life and non-life insurance products.

Green Carpet, a pioneering global initiative aimed at tracking carbon emissions generated by business travel, addresses specific challenges faced by organisations by providing them with tools to capture, monitor, analyse, report, and ultimately reduce their carbon emissions. The platform offers real-time insights into Scope 3 emissions, thereby enabling organisations to markedly reduce their Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) reporting expenses.

The onboarding of Eurolife FFH onto the Green Carpet platform underscores the escalating necessity for global leaders to monitor and manage their carbon emissions while establishing ambitious sustainability targets.

Madhavan Menon, Executive Chairman of Thomas Cook (India) Ltd, said, “We are delighted to welcome Eurolife FFH to our pioneering Green Carpet sustainability initiative. Our united efforts emphasise the critical need for corporations worldwide to embrace sustainable practices and assume responsibility for their carbon footprint. Through Green Carpet, we are paving the way for a greener, more responsible business landscape.

Since its launch in March 2023, Green Carpet has garnered attention from prominent players in the international business landscape, and our acquisition pipeline is looking encouraging. This strategic initiative is aligned with the company’s commitment to fostering sustainable business practices and contributing to environmental preservation.”

Sanjay Tugnait, President and CEO of Fairfax Digital Services, said, “Green Carpet is a powerful enabler that will empower enterprise customers to accelerate their journey to Net Zero. This is an exemplary partnership between Thomas Cook and Eurolife FFH, powered by the global know-how of Fairfax Digital, to create ESG solutions. Capturing, measuring, benchmarking, and reporting is not only a requirement by the UN for scope 3 emissions but also a social obligation for us to do our bit and save the planet. In this year of India’s G20 Presidency, as a member of the G20 Startup 20 Task Force on Sustainability, I am delighted we have built this digital solution that we can showcase amongst the G20 nations.”

Thomas Cook India and LTIMindtree’s Green Carpet will deliver the following benefits to Eurolife:

  • Simplified data capture and analysis of travel emissions with real-time dashboards
  • Alignment with global sustainability frameworks
  • Swift and easy integration with current business travel platforms for corporations
  • Advanced AI and ML to provide analytics
  • Decision-making to drive enterprise net-zero goals

Alexander Sarrigeorgiou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Eurolife FFH, stated: “We aspire to be right by the people, not only through our insurance products but also through important initiatives that have a positive impact on society in various ways. Our ambition is to be a driving force for a more sustainable future for everyone; therefore, we are very glad to join ‘Green Carpet’ within the framework of our overall ESG strategy. Every meaningful tool that helps the world tackle climate change must receive exposure and support.”

Sudhir Chaturvedi, President and Executive Board Member, LTIMindtree, said, “We at LTIMindtree are utilising our ESG and digital solutions expertise to help organisations simplify and accelerate their net zero journey by addressing Scope 3 emissions from business travel. The SaaS-based platform furthers the sustainability efforts of companies through automation of data capture, calculation, insightful analytics, and reporting of emissions to help make their business travel sustainable. The initiative was launched earlier this year along with Thomas Cook India, with the aim of improving monitoring and reporting of Scope 3 emissions aligned to global frameworks and reducing carbon footprints to build a greener planet.”
