Share 2020 U.S.-Booked Air Volume: $10.3 millionConsolidated U.S. TMC: BCDBTN estimates Cognizant’s business travel volume dropped by 85 percent to $10.3 million in 2020. The business consulting, information technology and outsourcing service provider has a stake in the digital transformation, given that it advises firms on virtual collaboration technologies. However, the firm seems to be taking its own advice, extending travel restrictions through 2021 and implementing a formal trip justification process for the first quarter of 2022, according to travel leaders who participated remotely in a conference panel over the summer. Yet, the company has also renegotiated its car rental contracts, so some form of business travel is expected in the future. Whatever form that takes, the company will be looking at travel with an eye toward sustainability. Cognizant’s 2020 environmental, social and governance report cited third-party measurement of the company’s Scope 1, 2 and 3 greenhouse gas emissions, the latter includes business travel and employee commuting. The company has publicly stated it is working toward a net-zero methodology.
