Climate Care

It is now widely accepted that the CO2 released in to the atmosphere by human activity is contributing to climate change. CO2 is a greenhouse gas that is released when fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal are burnt.

 

Each time we turn on the TV, switch on the cooker, or drive the car, CO2 is added into the atmosphere. Travel is no exception - and possibly the single most environmentally harmful impact of travel is the CO2 emissions from the flights we take.

 

Visit the ClimateCare website using the link below, and you too can offset the CO2 emissions from your flights by entering the relevant details into the emissions calculator and buying your offsets from ClimateCare. Alternatively On the Go Tours can do so on your behalf when you book a tour with us.

 

Offsetting means paying someone to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere by the same amount as your activities add. People often think that offsetting is simply a case of planting trees. However, ClimateCare do much more than that!

 

ClimateCare are working all over the world to reduce emissions and improve lives in India, Africa, China, and South America. Reducing CO2 emissions can be done in a number of ways. ClimateCare projects include:

 

  • Supporting the manufacture and distribution of fuel efficient stoves in Ghana. These reduce the amount of fuel used, lowering CO2 emissions and releasing fewer pollutants within the home helping to reduce incidence of respiratory disease.
  • Funding the distribution of water filters to 4.5 million people in Kenya removing the need to boil water by burning wood. This project not only reduces emissions and slows deforestation but has had a dramatic effect reducing the instances of water borne diseases that causes diarrhoea.
  • Supporting the development of Geothermal energy in Indonesia which improves access to power for local people and boosts the reliability and efficiency of the electricity grid.

 

ClimateCare’s projects are sustainable – On the Go Tours chose to work with them specifically because their projects not only reduce carbon but improve people’s lives.

 

On the go Tours support projects in the ClimateCare mixed portfolio that can be viewed hereYou can also check out some short films about these projects on ClimateCare’s You Tube Channel
