Green Carpet is a SaaS based platform that seamlessly captures, monitors and reports business travel emissions in line with Global ESG Reporting standards
As part of its innovative Green Carpet initiative, Thomas Cook (India) Limited, India’s leading omnichannel travel services company, and LTIMindtree [NSE: LTIM, BSE: 540005], a global technology consulting and digital solutions company, have inked an agreement with Eurolife FFH, a leading insurance group based in Greece, servicing over 500,000 customers with Life and non-Life insurance products.
Green Carpet, a pioneering global initiative aimed at tracking carbon emissions generated by business travel, addresses specific challenges faced by organisations by providing them with tools to capture, monitor, analyse, report, and ultimately reduce their carbon emissions. The platform offers real-time insights into Scope 3 emissions, thereby enabling organisations to markedly reduce their Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) reporting expenses.
The onboarding of Eurolife FFH onto the Green Carpet platform underscores the escalating necessity for global leaders to monitor and manage their carbon emissions while establishing ambitious sustainability targets.
Mr. Madhavan Menon, Executive Chairman of Thomas Cook (India) Ltd said, “We are delighted to welcome Eurolife FFH – to our pioneering Green Carpet sustainability initiative.

Through Green Carpet, we are paving the way for a greener, more responsible business landscape.
Since its launch in March 2023, Green Carpet has garnered attention from prominent players in the international business landscape and our acquisition pipeline is looking encouraging. This strategic initiative is aligned with the company’s commitment to fostering sustainable business practices and contributing to environmental preservation.”
Mr. Sanjay Tugnait, President and CEO Fairfax Digital Services said, “Green Carpet is a powerful enabler that will empower the enterprise customers to accelerate their journey to Net Zero. This is an exemplary partnership between Thomas Cook and Eurolife FFH powered by the Global Knowhow of Fairfax Digital to create ESG solutions. To capture, measure, benchmark and report is not only a requirement by the UN for scope 3 emissions but also a social obligation for us to do our bit and save the planet. In this the year of India’s G20 Presidency, as a member of the G20 Startup 20 Task Force on Sustainability, I am delighted we have built this digital solution that we can showcase amongst the G20 nations.”
