What’s not included – and why?
We haven’t included international travel to reach the start of our trips. With travellers joining our tours from all over the world, we can’t calculate all the different travel distances, methods, departure airports etc. However, we do calculate the emissions from our customers flights, and include this in our total footprint calculations so we can be clear on our entire business footprint.
And we haven’t included additional meals or optional excursions, because they don’t have a fixed, measurable footprint. But we’ll be providing tips for selecting lower-carbon options for eating out, including what and where you eat, and activities too – but do consider what benefits the places you’re visiting, as well as being lower carbon.
