Many tourism brands are finding ways to make a difference in how they treat the world and to be more conscious about their own environmental impact. We only have one planet to explore, so we need to take steps to care for it as best we can. Lindblad Expeditions recently announced their initiatives to go fully carbon neutral. This goal aligns with their legacy of promoting eco-friendly and sustainable tourism.
Starting this year, Lindblad Expeditions will offset 100% of its carbon emissions. This includes emissions from all of their ships, land-based operations, employee travel, and their US offices. They hope to reduce their carbon footprint and commit to carbon neutrality to make a difference in the future of our world.
To do this well, Lindblad Expeditions has been working alongside South Pole, a leading developer of carbon emissions reduction projects. Third-party verification and regular project monitoring ensure that all projects meet the standards that have been set in place.
Some of the projects they’ve decided to invest in include solar and wind energy, reforestation, and community-based projects in countries where Lindblad-National Geographic tours visit. Lindblad Expeditions also partners with National Geographic for many of its tours and travel experiences, and they too have taken significant steps toward offsetting carbon emissions.
If you’re looking to book a vacation with a tour company that takes care to preserve the environment, Lindblad Expeditions is perfect for you. They offer travelers unique adventure travel tours and cruises all around the globe. Top destinations include the Galapagos, Antarctica, Costa Rica, Egypt, and Alaska.
