Cost savings hammer environment in reasons for cutting business travel: Survey

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the bottom line findings from the new Barclaycard Commerical Business Travel Survey suggest the dire economic climate is far outweighing environmental concerns as a factor in cutting down business travel. Barclaycard’s 13th annual travel survey, covering 2,200 respondents attitude to business travel as of December 2008, showed of the 15% of business travellers who anticipated travelling less this year, three out of five respondents (57%) are doing this in response to declining business or cost issues and only one per cent as a result of a company environmental policy.  The 15% expecting to travel less this year compares to 7% who expected to travel less in the previous year’s survey.

    You’ve really created some superb points right here. I particularly appreciate the way you’ve been capable to stick so much thought into a relatively brief publish (comparitively) which produces it an thoughtful publish on your topic. In my opinion, you have presented the topic inside a very thorough however concise method, that is genuinely useful when somebody wants to get the facts without having investing as well a lot time searching the Internet and sifting out the noise to discover the answers to their questions. I generally get so frustrated with so numerous in the final results inside the main SE’s due to the fact they normally appear to mainly be filled with filler content material that frequently isn’t extremely sensible. If you do not mind I’m going to add this post and your blog to my scrumptious favorites so i can share it with my loved ones. I show up forward to coming back again to read your future posts too.
