    BCD Travel recently surveyed more than 100 travel buyers and almost 1,800 business travelers to gauge the importance of environmental sustainability in business travel. The report aims to explore travel programs from the perspective of sustainability looking at the current priorities, challenges, opportunities and needs of travel buyers and travelers.

    The attention to business travel as a source of carbon emissions and a contributor to climate change keeps growing. Being motivated by concerns for the environment, as well as commercial interests, companies are increasingly setting ambitious sustainability targets aligned with climate science. They are incorporating a variety of sustainability measures, from calculating emissions arising from their activity and improving data transparency to offering green alternatives to their employees. Given their ability to increase awareness and promote sustainable behavior in travelers, organizations play a crucial role in reducing their negative environmental impact.

This new report provides an overview of key regulations on sustainable travel that help drive awareness, innovation and investment.

    twogo is the smart mobility platform for everyone who wants to ride together. It arranges carpooling opportunities automatically, efficiently and precisely. The in-house start-up of Schwarz Mobility Solutions and SIXT are now joining forces so that twogo users can now use SIXT mobility at exclusive discounts. SIXT employees will also be using twogo for their daily commute in future.

    Carpooling pays off, as Stephan Tschierschwitz, Head of Mobility Solutions at Schwarz Mobility Solutions, demonstrated in our last CarPool interview and explained how commuting can be made more sustainable in the future.

    When it comes to sustainability, digitalisation and modern mobility, it goes without saying that the No. 1 car rental company in Germany should not be left out. From now on, all twogo users can book SIXT mobility at preferential rates in the twogo app. Users receive an attractive discount on all SIXT hire cars. If you want to buy a car for a longer period of time and at the same time share the cost of travelling to work with colleagues, you can now also take out a SIXT+ car subscription via twogo. All twogo users receive an additional 500 free kilometres per month when taking out a car subscription. 

    About twogo:

    twogo provides modern and uncomplicated mobility in everyday life and supports the achievement of climate targets. In addition, twogo relieves the burden on infrastructure in urban areas and strengthens the relationship between drivers and passengers through fair cost sharing. The carpooling solution can be downloaded free of charge from the app stores and is available both as a mobile app (iOS, Android) and as a web app.

    The Casa dos Curumins Association is a non-profit civil society organisation with no religious or party affiliations.
    Casa dos Curumins promotes the socio-cultural inclusion of socially vulnerable children, adolescents, young people and the elderly in the south of São Paulo - Brazil, through recreational, educational, cultural, environmental, musical, artistic and sporting activities.

    The Association works to ensure that children and young people can be the protagonists of their lives, contributing to the construction of a fairer and more egalitarian world, aiming for full citizenship for low-income populations, in a transparent and sustainable way.

    What makes Casa dos Curumins different?

    The philanthropic association Casa dos Curumins is a simple, transparent and extremely concrete project, driven by love. We connect people in the fight to eradicate poverty and the human and environmental degradation that characterises life in communities. Casa dos Curumins has become a big family. With the support of our friends and partners, we invest in transforming the lives of children and young people, offering healthy and beautiful environments so that they can thrive fully. We empower young people so that they can create lasting change in their own lives and in their communities. By investing in children together, we have the opportunity to create real and lasting change in families and communities, as well as in our own lives. The House welcomes children as young as 4 months, young people and teenagers into its projects, and also offers activities for senior citizens.

    The story

    The Casa dos Curumins Association was founded in 2005 by Swiss-Brazilian couple Alberto and Adriana Eisenhardt with the aim of providing a concrete response to overcoming poverty, injustice and social inequality, which relegate millions of children and young people to the margins of Brazilian society who, due to a lack of opportunities and education, can hardly achieve their dreams, even the simplest ones.
    After an intense and rich experience in the Pedreira community, where in 2002 Alberto Eisenhardt, a film-maker, made the documentary "Take Me in Memory" for Italian-language Swiss television (RSI), the first collaborations began with the educators of the young people featured in the documentary. The next step was the creation of the Casa dos Curumins Association in 2005 and, in 2010, the presence in São Paulo of Adriana and Alberto, who began to manage the Association's projects, seeking new partnerships and broadening the fields of action to respond to the demands and interests of the young people and the community.
    The Association has thus expanded its work, which was initially aimed at 80 children and teenagers in the after-school programme, and today welcomes 500 children and young people and provides assistance to their families. The House also offers choral singing, dancing, gymnastics and cultural outings to more than 100 elderly people.

    How can you support?

    This month you can support activities in Brazil by buying delicious panettone and pandoro from the Association, or wines produced by Valsangiacomo Vini of Mendrisio for the Casa dos Curumins. For all information and requests, write to Adriana Eisenhardt at
