Positive Impact Travel

Support sustainable projects on your next adventure

Choose to help protect natural environments, wildlife and community welfare simply be supporting our Positive Impact Projects when you travel with us. You can help simply by booking onto a carbon neutral trip or by offsetting the carbon emissions of your air travel.

Our Positive Impact Projects supports local economies and their sustainable development. By travelling with us you are directly supporting projects in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which aim to achieve a better future for all.

Travel on a trip where the carbon is offset, at no additional cost to you, or offset the carbon emitted by your air travel by purchasing credits that support important projects that address the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), such as reducing poverty, providing affordable and clean energy, reducing hunger, supplying clean water and implementing environmentally-friendly solutions for climate action.

What are the UN Sustainable Development Goals?


How do I directly benefit the environment, communities and their economies?

Proceeds from your adventure are used to purchase carbon credits through the world’s largest and most awarded carbon project developer, South Pole. These credits are invested into projects that accelerate the transition to renewable energy sources for developing nations, as well as projects that benefit local communities and protect their biodiversity. 

If you wish to offset your carbon footprint from your flight, you can opt-in to buy carbon credits that will be put towards supporting wind power projects in Turkey, China and India. 

At no additional cost to you, our Asia adventures will offset the carbon emissions from your land travel to support a wind farm in Vietnam, a conservation project in Australia, a habitat protection project in Zimbabwe and a hydropower plant in China.

These supported projects are based on internationally recognised standards and are third-party audited.
