Our Climate Policy
Diverse Travel is committed to reducing the environmental impact of our operation and developing a long-term strategy for sustainable travel.
What changes are we making?
We have offset carbon and 9 other greenhouse gases used by our company from 1 November 2019 onwards. This means calculating the footprint of all travel, by car, air, and train, along with energy consumed by our offices, participation in Dive Shows, overseas visits and hotel stays. Working with ClimateCare allows us to act immediately to reduce our footprint while we continue to implement our long-term strategies for sustainable travel.
We have already begun implementing further actions including continuing a work-from-home option for all team members and online team meetings. We continue to work towards a cleaner environment within our office in Chatteris; no single plastic use, aiming towards becoming paper free, office recycling scheme, reducing energy consumption by turning off all electrical items when not in use.
Diverse Travel is committed to a continuing path to be truly carbon neutral and promoting sustainable travel to safeguard our environment.
Why are we doing this?
We tailor make dream holidays centred on the natural world and have a responsibility to measure and take full responsibility for our environmental and social impacts. We can no longer ignore the contribution towards environmental damage that tourism causes.
Our climate is rapidly changing. This is evident in ever increasing ocean acidification and loss of biodiversity and rising sea levels. The UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development include ending poverty, improving global health, and mitigating climate change by 2030.
The future is in our hands right now and we believe that we all need to strive to become Climate Neutral.
