Carbon Offsetting

How We Offset the Carbon Footprint of Your Holiday

We are increasingly aware of the impact that our daily lives have upon the environment. Almost everything that we do creates some kind of “carbon footprint”.

As part of our Travel Well policy we ensure that every holiday we arrange has a positive impact, actively benefiting the people and places that you will visit, as well as more than offsetting its entire carbon footprint.
 
These positive impacts will be outlined in the tailormade itinerary that you receive. We are also committed to taking actions to reduce our footprint through sustainable operations.

ClimateCare
To offset each holiday’s carbon footprint we work in partnership with ClimateCare who have over 20 years’ experience in this field. They are involved with 300 climate related projects in 54 countries and their Climate+Care approach ensures that the projects we support tackle both climate and sustainable development issues.
ClimateCare
We worked with ClimateCare to analyse details of various tailormade holidays that we arrange and told them that our aim is to more than offset the international and internal flights, light aircraft, game drives, transfers and the accommodation. ClimateCare advised us that by doubling the offset required to cover the international flights we would more than offset the footprint of the entire holiday.
ClimateCare
ClimateCare’s Head of Partnerships explains, “We are working with a range of organisations, from international corporates, governments and NGOs to deliver innovative projects at an unprecedented scale. Our Climate+Care model helps organisations take a smart approach to addressing their environmental impacts by offsetting their carbon emissions and supporting sustainable development”.

Fuel Efficient Stoves
We have agreed with ClimateCare that our carbon offset funds will be applied to fund projects to provide fuel efficient stoves in Africa. These are far more efficient than traditional means, using a fraction of the wood and charcoal fuel. They also create far less smoke and pollution within the home which helps improve the health of people. They also reduce external pollution and create jobs.

A Word From One of Our Founders
“We are delighted to work with ClimateCare who are experts in this field, with over 20 years’’ experience running some of the most innovative and largest carbon offset programmes in the world. Working with them has helped us understand how we can integrate action to tackle climate change and improve people’s lives.”

— Warwick Hoffman, Founding Director

What About Premium Flights?
Flying in the more spacious premium cabin increases your share of the footprint caused by flying. If you decide to travel in premium economy, business or first class we will increase our contribution to ClimateCare and will continue to double it, so the amount of offset will be correspondingly greater for the entire holiday.
