Making Travel Better for the Planet: The Role of Carbon Offsetting
While we at Nat Hab believe deeply that conservation travel is one of the most effective ways to protect wildlife and wild places around the world, we’re also aware of the potential negative impacts of travel and our responsibility to reduce those. Until the pandemic hit, ever more people have been flying farther and more frequently. All those flights add up to a great deal of carbon released into the atmosphere—and once we’re all flying again, all indications are that we will return to and surpass those levels. In response, Nat Hab has led the way on CO2 reduction in the travel industry, becoming the world’s first 100% carbon-neutral travel company in 2007, and offsetting all our travelers’ flights to and from our destinations since 2019. But does all that offsetting really make a difference? Join Court Whelan, Nat Hab’s Director of Sustainability and Conservation Travel, for a look at the past, present and future of carbon offsetting, as well as how Nat Hab, and the travel industry as a whole, are achieving reductions in carbon emissions.
