TWO companies headquartered in Scotland, Lloyds Banking Group and Abrdn, feature in the top 10 of 322 businesses ranked by the ‘Travel Smart’ campaign. The ranking reviews how companies are performing on their commitments to reduce corporate travel and report air travel emissions.
The remaining two companies headquartered in Scotland featured in the ranking, NatWest Group and SSE, received the second-bottom ‘C’ rating.
Transform Scotland spokesperson Elspeth Wray said:
“If companies are really serious about tackling climate change then they must fly less. Leading Scottish companies such as Lloyds Banking Group and Abrdn have shown that it’s possible to cut emissions from business travel whilst succeeding commercially. Businesses that don’t act will increasingly be challenged for failing to follow their environmental rhetoric with concerted action to cut emissions.”
