How To Reduce Your Holiday CO2 Emissions By 90%
Back in 2020, we began our sustainable journey as part of our goal to become a net-zero company and have recently been working hard to reboot this post-pandemic.
As part of this, we’ve partnered with Tree-Nation and will be planting enough trees to offset 110% of the CO2 emissions of every villa holiday booked with us. So far, we’ve planted enough trees to offset 691.41 tonnes of CO2 emissions, which we think is pretty good going.
Also, with the help of a sustainability expert, we are currently auditing our entire portfolio right from air conditioning and electricity usage to waste management systems and recycling rates. We are also analysing the size of the property, its most popular season and the national energy suppliers’ fuel mix.
From this, we will be adapting toward lower emission properties and aim to be fully accredited by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) by the end of 2022.
Why are we doing this, you might ask?
We’re doing this because travel and tourism contribute to around 8% of the world’s total greenhouse gas emissions. As a business in the industry, we can’t ignore this. We must do our bit to reduce this number and emissions across the board.
We’re proud to be able to reduce emissions on all holidays by offering a slower approach to travel, like taking a train right through the landscape and staying in a villa to really experience what life is like in a particular destination.
After all, the only footprints we should be leaving behind are those in the sand.
