Intrepid Travel

Commitments:

Intrepid Travel has been a carbon neutral business since 2010 and in 2018 became the world’s largest travel business to be certified B Corp. This means we meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.
We’re seeing many more companies committing to carbon neutrality. But based on the facts we know today; we would be lying to ourselves if we were to continue as though being carbon neutral is enough for the travel industry. 
Over the last 15-years, the need for climate action has grown more obvious year-on-year. Not only is the climate crisis leading to extreme weather events that threaten people and wildlife world over, but it is a significant threat to our business. So many of the destinations we love may well be destroyed by drought, fire, or other weather events over the next decade.
In January 2020, we declared a climate emergency with Tourism Declares, a global collective of tourism businesses, organisations and individuals who have pledged urgent action on climate change. Intrepid Travel is the first global tour operator with verified science-based carbon emission targets in line with a 1.5°C future, which means we will reduce our greenhouse gas emissions at the pace and scale that science says is necessary to limit global warming to 1.5°C across our operations and supply chain.
Intrepid Travel is committed to creating environmental benefits by removing additional carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and decarbonise our business by reducing emissions from our trips and global operations.
Our seven-point climate commitment plan: 
1. Measure our emissions.
2. Offset 125% of our emissions in 2020..
3. Set a science-based target to reduce emissions.
4. Transition to 100% renewable energy in offices by 2025 and on trips by 2030
5. Invest in green deposits…
6. Empower women and strive for social justice
7. Invest in research and innovative solutions.
It’s our responsibility to help preserve the planet for the next generation of travellers and the communities that call these places home.
