“Travel activity in companies will increase again and will be put to the test in the future: for reasons of health, for cost reasons and not least for climate protection reasons. 
“In the future, unavoidable business trips will have to be assessed according to new, not cost-driven aspects, but in a balance between economic, ecological and social-societal interests.
