Travel management company Travel Places has announced its B Corporation certification, joining more than 1,400 B Corps in the UK, including The Guardian, innocent and The Body Shop.

The TMC, which specialises in arranging travel for the sports, media and entertainment industry, said the certification process meant it had to meet “rigorous standards” of accountability.

The Worthing-based agency had to verify its social and environmental performance and the impact of the business on employees, customers, communities and the environment.

Travel Places joins a small number of travel companies to have achieved certification and is only the second business travel management company within the B Corp community.

Matthew Warren, joint managing director at the TMC, said: “This is an incredible milestone for us at Travel Places, and one that we are all exceptionally proud of.

“We’ve always been passionate about balancing profit and purpose but by becoming a certified B Corporation we now have a globally recognised stamp of these efforts that further strengthens our commitment to contribute to a better, more sustainable future.

“We accept the impact that travel and events programmes can have on our resources, society and the environment.

“But we also strongly believe that they can be a powerful force for good and we have embraced our responsibility in facilitating that.

“Becoming B Corp marks the start of the next phase of our journey.

“We’re committed to a path of continual improvement and will keep pushing forward, identifying more ways to support our community of staff, local suppliers and charities, and always striving to make the right decisions to increase our positive impact on the world.”

As a certified B Corp business, Travel Places has shown how it can “balance profits with purpose”. To maintain certification, companies must reassess and reverify every three years.

Chris Turner, executive director of certification body B Lab UK, added: “This is a movement of companies who are committed to changing how business operates and believe business really can be a force for good.

“We know that Travel Places are going to be a fantastic addition to the community and will continue driving the conversation forward.

“Welcoming Travel Places is an exciting moment because they have an opportunity to lead the way within the business travel industry.”

In order to reach the standards required by B Corp, Travel Places has taken steps such as cutting its carbon footprint at its head office with solar panels and a switch to electric vehicles.

It is offsetting emissions that are impossible to avoid and increasing its community involvement by partnering with local charities to fundraise, support and raise awareness.

The firm improved provisions for staff by committing to paying a living wage, refreshing wellbeing campaigns, and is supporting its clients’ sustainability efforts.

It has also launched a training academy, providing increased opportunities for those looking to begin a career in travel.

Tokyo Transport Guide

Tokyo has developed a dense network of metro, train and bus lines that serve the Greater Tokyo area. As Tokyo is a very busy city, the public transport is the best way to get around the city. With the multilingual signage and instructions, the public transport is very accessible for tourists.

The rail network dominates the public transport in Greater Tokyo. There are several companies which operate the most extensive rail network in the world. The 13 metro lines cover central Tokyo, especially the area inside the Yamanote circle, around Ginza and east of the loop line. The busiest stations are Shinjuku Station, Ikebukuro Station and Shibuya Station.

JR East is the largest railway company in the world. It provides most of the railway traffic in Tokyo, as well as, to other destinations in Japan. There are several other companies that provide commuter train service to the nearby area. The Shinkansen (Bullet Train) is fast train service that connects the major cities in Japan. The travel time from Osaka/Kyoto to Tokyo is about three hours.

The bus network is not heavily used in the city centre. It's more convenient for places outside the central area. They are not as frequent as the trains, but they are a good alternative if you want to avoid the crowds.

Tokyo Narita International Airport (NRT) is the main one serving Greater Tokyo. It is located on the border between Narita and Shibayama, around 60 km from Tokyo. There are regular train, bus, taxi and private airport transfer services to Tokyo and the surrounding area.

Narita Airport is served by express and commuter trains. Narita Express is connected to Tokyo Station via the Narita and Sobu lines. The suburban JR rapid service train follows the same route to Tokyo Station with several intermediate stops which makes the travel time longer. Keisei provides train services to central Tokyo and the suburbs, as well.

Regular bus services run from Tokyo Narita Airport to the Tokyo City Air Terminal, major hotels and railway stations in the Greater Tokyo Area. Buses are generally slower than trains because of the traffic conditions. An overnight bus service to Kyoto and Osaka is available, as well.

The airport taxi service in Tokyo is fast and reliable. They charge by the meter and additional charges may apply for night rides.

To stay away from the crowds, it's best to book a private Tokyo Narita airport transfer with us. Our premium service includes a door-to-door airport transfer in comfortable and luxury vehicles at fixed cost. The English-speaking driver will meet you at the arrivals gate and take you directly to your hotel, and we hope you enjoy the airport transfer from Tokyo Narita Airport to Tokyo city centre.

Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND) is the second one that serves Greater Tokyo. It is located closer to the city centre, around 14 km. There are regular train and bus lines that run to Tokyo. The latest prices for a private airport taxi from Tokyo Haneda Airport to Tokyo city centre are on the link.

In Japan, we offer private transportation in Kyoto and Osaka.
