Business travel in ERM (Energy, Resource and Marine) sectors refers to travel related to industries that deal with energy, natural resources, and marine operations. Oil and gas exploration and production, mining, renewable energy and shipping are a few sectors included in ERM.
Travelling the seven seas
Our clients within the Energy, Resource, and Marine sectors travel far and wide, to all corners of the world and back again! We recognise that business travel within these sectors can be fast-paced and intense, so providing a travel service that is timely and safe is crucial. These sectors often involve travelling to remote locations and offshore platforms that require specialist equipment and safety protocols, something we take into consideration when planning travel for our ERM clients.
Business travel can play a leading role in supporting the energy, resources and marine sectors in several other ways. From building relationships to site visits and business growth, travel is a key factor, and Clarity is well-equipped and experienced to provide this!
When it comes to building relationships, business travel allows professionals within the ERM sectors to connect with their clients, suppliers and partners through face-to-face interactions, which is the leading way to develop and maintain solid relationships! The large-scale projects that are within these sectors usually require close collaboration and coordination, meaning it is essential that strong relationships are formed.
Business travel allows professionals to visit and assess project sites, exploration areas, and potential investments. This enables those within the Energy, Resources and Marine sectors to gain a first-hand understanding of the conditions and challenges faced in these areas, which is crucial in decision-making and risk assessment. This also aids with business growth by allowing professionals to identify potential clients and partners and establish new business relationships.
Considering the environment
Sustainability in business travel within ERM sectors has become an increasingly important consideration in recent years. These sectors often require extensive travel for the proper management and execution of operations and therefore need to consider steps towards sustainable travel. ERM companies can implement sustainable practices throughout the entire travel process. This includes reducing waste by minimising packaging and avoiding single-use items, as well as prioritising sustainable food options and reducing water usage.
Clarity does consider sustainability as a priority and we work hard to ensure our ERM clients have the option to choose a more eco-friendly travel option and book environmentally friendly accommodation where possible. Read all about sustainable business travel here.
