Green Energy in Focus
With aviation accounting for 2.5% of the world’s annual CO2 emissions and 3.5% of the planet’s increase in temperature, the travel industry will continuously owe a debt to the planet unless something changes. We’re taking extensive steps to measure and reduce the impact of every flight we book. Where flights are booked, we will measure the carbon and balance the emissions through an offset donation to World Land Trust.
In 2019, we supported the work of Nicolas Cristen, a doctorate student working on nuclear fusion energy at Oxford University Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE). Nuclear fusion energy represents one of the most promising sources of sustainable energy, with the potential to create sufficient energy for the planet with minimal impact on it. From September 2021 we have committed to supporting Practical Action, an international charity that works with communities to develop ingenious, lasting and locally owned solutions for agriculture, water and waste management, climate resilience and clean energy.
