Sanofi Paris Share 2018 U.S.-Booked Air Volume: $91 millionPrimary Global Online Booking Tool: ConcurPrimary Global Expense Supplier: ConcurConsolidated Global TMC: Amex GBTPharmaceutical giant Sanofi’s spend on U.S.-booked air travel decreased $13 million in 2018, according to a BTN estimate. The company’s net sales declined to 34.5 billion euros in 2018, down nearly 2 percent. Sanofi for years has pushed to limit the environmental impact of its business travel, but in 2018, the company generated about 136,500 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent as a result of such travel, 22 percent higher than in 2017. Those figures incorporate Sanofi air travel originating in 36 countries, which represents 80 to 90 percent of all company air travel; hotel stays in 26 countries; and car rentals in 16 countries. The company’s travel policy encourages remote collaboration and discourages some aspects of business travel, depending on trip duration, and its SAP Concur online booking tool includes traveler prompts to that effect. Sanofi has installed high-definition videoconferencing at several sites as an alternative to travel. At the end of 2018, the company had 104,200 employees, down 2,300 from one year earlier.
