Sanofi Paris Share 2017 U.S.-Booked Air Volume: $104 millionConsolidated Global TMC: Amex GBTBTN estimates that spending on U.S.-booked air travel for pharmaceutical giant Sanofi increased less than 1 percent in 2017. Sanofi continues to minimize travel spend and travel-related carbon emissions. The company's global travel policy, in fact, recommends that before any business trip, the feasibility of a virtual meeting must be assessed. Sanofi helps to facilitate such meetings by offering in-house high-definition videoconferencing and telepresence rooms throughout the world. Additionally, when certain criteria are selected in the company's booking tool, the tool will prompt travelers to consider travel alternatives. The company's business air travel, hotel and rental car use generated about 111,440 metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2017, an increase of about 1 percent year over year. Sanofi at year-end 2017 employed 106,566; that 293 fewer than one year earlier. The company's net sales increased 3.6 percent in 2017 to 35.1 billion euros. In 2018, Sanofi has acquired biotechnology firms Bioverativ and Ablynx.
