Carbon-anything can sound kind of dry, if you dont understand it. Yet being sustainable especially when it comes to carbon emissions is crucial for travelers. Though the pandemic may have slowed things temporarily, more people than ever are traveling to the farthest corners of the planet, and tourism must be a greater force for global good than detriment. So how can a carbon-emitting industry encourage environmental conservation? Are offsets just a panacea, or are they crucial to improving life on Earth, especially the livelihoods of people in the far-flung local communities we visit? Nat Hab has led the way on this mission, becoming the worlds first carbon-neutral travel company since 2007 and continuing to inspire and encourage other travel enterprises to follow suit. Join Court Whelan, Nat Habs Director of Sustainability and Conservation Travel, for a look at the past, present and future of carbon emissions and carbon offsetting in the travel industry.
