AirPlus International Releases Corporate Travel Survey Results on CSR/Green Initiatives in a Down Economy

ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AirPlus International, a global provider of corporate travel payment savings and solutions, releases its April edition of The Wire…from AirPlus entitled: Will Green Initiatives/CSR Survive a Down Economy? The report concludes that while some environment-savvy business travel and CSR initiatives may falter in the short term, the long term outlook shows promise. Interestingly, 51.1% think a new political focus on green jobs and decreased dependence on foreign oil will have a positive effect on CSR efforts.
