Corporate Travel Management (CTM) has named John Nicholls as global head of ESG and sustainability in a newly created global role designed to elevate CTM’s sustainability strategy and customer solutions.

Prior to joining CTM, Nicholls successfully delivered carbon reduction initiatives and social benefits to improve sustainability visibility and performance for organisations across the public and private sectors including defence, infrastructure services, transport, telecommunication, oil and gas, and construction industries.

He is equipped with degree qualifications in environmental science and professional accreditations in infrastructure sustainability (ISAP) and possesses expertise in aligning organisations to sustainability performance standards including the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG) and Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards, among others.

CTM managing director, Jamie Pherous, said: “Our suite of sustainable travel solutions leads the industry and is highly aligned to our customers’ feedback and needs. They want to make more informed and sustainable travel decisions while driving growth and sustainability for their business, and they understand that business travel is a key enabler of those outcomes."

Underlining Pherous' remarks, CTM’s 2022 global customer survey found that 56.8% of respondents seek sustainability features when selecting an airline, hotel and car rental provider, while 70.3% of respondents said access to information relating to supply chain sustainability strategies will be "important" to "very important" in the coming 12 months.
