The 'Action' in our Climate Action Plan
We already plan our trips so that you experience your destination as locals do, using public transport where possible and immersing yourself in local restaurants and our favourite accommodation.
However, as a company with a large carbon footprint, we know we have a large responsibility to measure, reduce and offset it.
We have measured our entire carbon footprint as a company, from our offices, to our staff commuting, to the accommodation in your trip.We have measured our entire carbon footprint as a company, from our offices, to our staff commuting, to the accommodation in your trip.
We have two key reduction targets as a business:
- We aim to reduce our Scope 1 and 2 2022 emissions by 50% by 2030, as per the Glasgow Declaration and science-based targets. This is an absolute emissions target
- We also aim to reduce our 2022 total business emissions per customer per night (if all bookings included international flights) by 50% by 2030. As these emissions are on a per customer per night basis, this is known as an emissions intensity target.
Our 'Every Trip Offset' policy means that we’ll balance out the carbon emissions from your flights and ground arrangements through verified sustainable development projects across Asia - like the award-winning biogas project in rural Vietnam and renewable wind power in India. In 2023 alone, we offset over 50,000 tonnes emissions on our customers behalf.
Our actions to measure, reduce and offset our emissions mean we have been a certified CarbonNeutral® company since 2023.
