MORE than just trees
Reforestation will help reverse climate change, but trees can be fragile and take time to grow, so to ensure a traveller’s carbon emissions are removed as quickly as possible, we always assign each tree with a share of an investment into a United Nations Certified Emissions Reduction (CER) renewable energy program, this is a carbon credit, so essentially, we are doubling our promise.
These carbon credits are generated from around the world and keep emissions from being released right now. Each time a renewable energy project verifies they have reduced or avoided one metric tonne of greenhouse gases; one carbon credit is created. These carbon credits are also suitable for conformity and mandatory reporting for corporations.
Travel accounts for 8% of annual global CO2 emissions, 3% of which is from air travel. So, if we all stopped flying, the maximum reduction we can achieve is only 3%. However, we can use travel to help repair and improve the other major CO2 culprit sectors – 20% deforestation and 25% power generation.
Reducing our emissions and drawing existing carbon out of the atmosphere is a priority, it will require massive efforts from many different sectors, with a combination of approaches.
MORE than just offsets
By investing into renewable energy projects and simultaneously growing trees in our FCTG forest, we are going beyond just removing emissions. In fact, we say that "we make travel planet and people positive", as the tree planting in developing countries brings so many additional benefits to not only the environment but also to communities. Trees4Travel aims to support up to 13 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Our tree planting ethos is based on key objectives: working closely with robust and verified tree planting organisations in developing countries who are experts in their local environments, planting a variety of tree species that are native to the region, with the full engagement and consent of local communities in a way that respects their cultural and ecological rights.
