For Earth Day 2019, We are ALL IN on Carbon Reduction!

We made a weighty decision…as in 40 million pounds. That’s roughly how much more carbon dioxide Nat Hab will offset this year in our quest to quell climate change...because we are now offsetting all flights our guests take in conjunction with our trips, thereby increasing our current carbon offsets by 300-400%.

Back in 2007, Nat Hab became the world’s first carbon-neutral travel company, partnering with Sustainable Travel International to offset all CO2 emissions from our field and office operations, and encouraging others in our industry to do likewise. But that effort, we realized, is not enough. We need to do more.

Air travel plays such a big role in greenhouse gas output for our nearly 8,000 annual travelers that we’re opting to offset all CO2 output across the board, including all guests' flights. We’ll be counteracting an additional 20,000-24,000 metric tons of CO2 sent into Earth’s atmosphere in 2019 alone—about 40 million pounds—which doubles the total amount of CO2 Nat Hab has already offset since 2007. While we’re making this announcement to celebrate Earth Day, we’re implementing it retroactively, offsetting all flights from the start of 2019. So if you’ve already traveled with us this year, you’re included!

In partnership with South Pole, a company that works with businesses and governments around the globe to cut carbon impacts, we’ve chosen three projects to invest our carbon credits with on your behalf, and each is located in a country where we offer nature adventures:

INDIA:  Mytrah Wind Power
Projected annual emission reductions: 479,448 metric tons of CO2
The Mytrah Wind Power project brings renewable energy sources to the southern states of India including Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. The project benefits local communities by providing 150 jobs and establishling educational opportunities for young women. In addition to these initiatives, the organization also provides clean drinking water to 12,000 people via seven water plants.

ZIMBABWE:  Kariba REDD+ Forest Protection
Projected annual emission reductions: 3,000,000 metric tons of CO2
The Kariba REDD+ Forest Protection project in Zimbabwe has conserved 1.9 million acres of land by working to prevent deforestation and land degradation, keeping more than 18 million tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere. The organization also supports local communities by establishing 19 health clinics and providing 60,250 people with safe drinking water. Its economic and health-related outreach programs impact 85,000 people in the region, 40% of whom are women seeking education and training for project management.

RWANDA:  Efficient Cook Stove Program
Projected annual emission reductions: 58,315 metric tons of CO2
The Rwanda cook stove project tackles fuel consumption and deforestation by providing innovative home cook stoves to communities throughout Rwanda. With 10,800 cook stoves distributed, locals are able to use these stoves to improve health conditions in their homes by reducing smoke inhalation. In addition, locals use 70% less firewood compared with traditional stoves, decreasing rampant deforestation in central Africa. The new stoves also free up approximately 2 million hours of time required to collect wood, allowing people to spend more time on income-generating activities.
