Nestle Vevey, Switzerland Share 2015 U.S.-Booked Air Volume: $52 millionPrincipal Online Booking Tool: Concur TravelConsolidated U.S. TMC: BCD TravelAfter a one-year absence, food and beverage conglomerate Nestle rejoins the Corporate Travel 100, as BTN estimates its 2015 U.S.-booked air volume increased after a decline in 2014.The company has taken several steps, including budget cuts and strictly interpreting corporate travel policy, to reduce travel and its associated environmental impact. Nestle promotes remote conferencing and other technology as alternatives to travel, and displays greenhouse gas-emission information along with fares to users of its Concur Travel online booking tool. The company also pushes users to rent electric cars.As a result, Nestle’s air travel and rental car use generated an estimated 242,800 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2014, down from 254,700 in 2013. Given an increase in headcount, the company’s efforts to reduce travel led to the avoidance of 16,600 metric tons of emissions.Nestle’s 2015 corporate revenue declined about 3 percent to 88.8 billion Swiss francs, or US$89.6 billion. Net profit declined about 37 percent to 9.1 billion Swiss francs, also US$9.1 billion based on the Dec. 31, 2015, exchange rate. The company had 335,000 employees at the end of 2015, about 4,000 more than it had in December 2014.
