Benefits of Concur

The Concur tool offers a variety of benefits for self-booking travel and managing expenses. Visit the Travel & Expense Management Program Benefits page for full details. 

Carbon Emissions Feature

Concur, now shows carbon emissions information for all flight options, indicating the pounds of CO2 for each trip. Air travel made up 21.1% of the University’s emissions pre-pandemic, so reducing this number is a major part of Pitt achieving carbon neutrality by 2037

The carbon emission feature in Concur will help the University to centralize the tracking of this emission data, whereas the same data for flights booked outside of Concur, such as through airlines or third-party sites, cannot be tracked centrally. Concur’s new feature will also help each department to develop their own internal goals and strategies for reducing emissions produced by air travel while still ensuring University travelers have access to discounted ticket prices and hands-on travel assistance when needed, all in one place. Read the full Pittwire article.

To utilize the carbon emissions feature in Concur:

  • Open the Concur online booking tool by searching "Concur" from my.pitt.edu
  • Search for a flight
  • In the search results, the pounds of carbon associated with each trip will be listed
