Both are aligned with the coalition's mission

Sabre Corporation and Mastercard join other leading travel and technology brands in the Travalyst coalition including Amadeus,, Expedia Group, Google, Skyscanner, Travelport, Group, Tripadvisor and Visa.

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

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

"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.”

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

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

Kristin Hays, chief communications and sustainability officer of Sabre, said: “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.”

Striving to transform the travel industry into a more sustainable one, by providing people with sustainability information, is a sentiment both Mastercard and Sabre are said to be fully aligned with.
