What will my offset contribution support?
When you offset your footprint through Sustainable Travel International, your contribution will be invested in one of our certified carbon reduction projects that combat climate change. In addition to reducing emissions, these projects support one or multiple of the following causes.
Forests & Biodiversity
Forest-based offset projects protect forest ecosystems which play a vital role in carbon sequestration. These projects support the preservation and reforestation of native forest species, while promoting sustainable resource management. They also contribute to wildlife conservation by safeguarding habitats that are home to endangered species and immense biodiversity.
Clean & Efficient Energy
Clean energy and energy efficiency projects decrease the amount of carbon emissions generated from energy use. Clean energy projects replace dirty fossil fuels like gas and coal with renewable energy sources, such as wind or solar. On the other hand, efficiency projects reduce the amount of energy needed to perform a task by supporting the application of new technologies or practices.
Carbon projects can also lead to valuable benefits for local communities by creating jobs or protecting traditional livelihoods and land rights. Communities can use the funds from carbon credits to advance their health care and education services. In addition, certain projects enhance community well-being by improving air quality and providing access to safe drinking water.
