Air travel accounts for 3-5% of carbon dioxide emissions that are released internationally, causing more than 600 million tonnes of the world's major greenhouse gas CO2 to be released into the atmosphere each year.
Air travellers obviously contribute to greenhouse gas emissions by having to fly, often out of sheer geographic necessity and the tourism industry finds they leave a larger footprint on the environment than they'd wish. With growing public awareness of sustainability both locally and abroad increasing pressure is being placed on the tourism industry to deliver a solution that creates sustainable growth opportunities for businesses and the industry as a whole.
How You Can Help
The UNIGLOBE Carbon Neutral program provides an opportunity for the airlines passengers to purchase carbon credits in order to offset a portion of the CO2 that is emitted by an aircraft during their flight.
We want to make sure we have an opportunity to address what has now become a clearly stated need of our customers to do their traveling more responsibly.
By first visiting your local UNIGLOBE Travel website or office, an airline passenger can not only calculate but also purchase the amount of carbon credits they need to offset their portion of CO2 produced.
Investing In Sustainable Technologies
Carbon offset credits purchased through The UNIGLOBE Travel Carbon Neutral Program are invested in environmentally friendly projects such as wind power, producing a continuous stream of greenhouse gas emission reduction.
How The Program Works
Every time you travel you can purchase carbon offset certificates from UNIGLOBE Travel. The monies collected are then invested in sustainable technology projects around the world by the Carbon Neutral Company.
