Carbon-Neutral Travel: The What, the How & the Why
“Carbon-anything” can sound kind of dry, if you don’t understand it. Yet being sustainable – especially when it comes to carbon emissions – is crucial for travelers. Though the pandemic may have slowed things temporarily, more people than ever are traveling to the farthest corners of the planet, and tourism must be a greater force for global good than detriment. So how can a carbon-emitting industry encourage environmental conservation? Are offsets just a panacea, or are they crucial to improving life on Earth, especially the livelihoods of people in the far-flung local communities we visit? Nat Hab has led the way on this mission, becoming the world’s first carbon-neutral travel company since 2007 and continuing to inspire and encourage other travel enterprises to follow suit. Join Court Whelan, Nat Hab’s Director of Sustainability and Conservation Travel, for a look at the past, present and future of carbon emissions and carbon offsetting in the travel industry.
