Carbon Offset Scheme
As a specialist tour operator with an on-going commitment to sustainable tourism we seek wherever we can to counter the effect our industry has upon the environment. A Carbon Offset Scheme seemed the next logical step in this commitment and with the help of TICOS (the Tourism Industry Carbon Offset Service), we began a scheme in 2007.
As a specialist tour operator with an on-going commitment to Sustainable tourism, we offer our customers the chance to offset some of the environmental damage aircraft emissions cause. We are committed to working with the Tourism Industry Carbon Offset Service (TICOS) who use offset funds to develop projects that make both carbon savings and have a wider sustainable development benefit. In partnership, TICOS and Sardinian Places have started two exclusive projects in The Gambia, Community Tree Planting and Mayan Turbo Stoves.
Although we are currently only collecting monies for projects in The Gambia, we are constantly researching potential projects in other destinations for future initiatives.
