Edited by Travel Weekly


    Travalyst, the not-for-profit organisation founded by Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, welcomed Sabre and Mastercard to its coalition.

    Sabre Corporation and Mastercard joined other travel and technology brands in the Travalyst coalition, including Amadeus, Booking.com, Expedia Group, Google, Skyscanner, Travelport, Trip.com Group, Tripadvisor and Visa.

    The group, which represents a combined market cap of almost $3 trillion, aims to bring sustainability information to the mainstream to help people make better travel choices. The addition of Mastercard and Sabre will help accelerate that ambition.

    “The addition of Mastercard and Sabre aligns with our partnerships strategy and adds further scale to our mission,” head of partnerships, Travalyst, Brad West, said.

    “Bringing a payments technology leader on board, as well as enhancing our presence among key technology providers to the travel industry, means we are strategically poised to deliver on our mission to mainstream sustainability information within the travel industry to help drive change.”

    Chad Wallace, global head of Commercial Solutions, Mastercard, added: “At Mastercard, we envision a world where each swipe, click or tap provides businesses and consumers with the opportunity to make more sustainable choices.

    “By joining the Travalyst coalition, we can further activate the power of our global network, insights and technologies to empower travellers to better understand the environmental impact of their business and leisure trips.”

    Kristin Hays, chief communications and sustainability officer, Sabre added: “We’re committed to taking on the biggest opportunities and solving the most complex challenges in travel, so we’re thrilled to be joining forces with Travalyst and our peers in the industry to help drive more sustainable travel decisions.”

    Travalyst strives to transform the travel industry into a more sustainable one, by providing people with sustainability information. This is a shared journey and both Mastercard and Sabre are aligned with Travalyst’s mission.
