Carbon Offsetting

Offset the carbon emissions produced by your trip!

You can make a difference to your individual carbon footprint by offsetting the carbon emissions that will be produced by your trip.

Click here to calculate your emissions for your trip and reduce your footprint.

In conjunction with Carbonfund.org (a carbon reduction programme) Star Travel can help you find out how to minimise your emissions and offset those that you do produce.

Carbonfund.org has been created to mitigate the effects of our lives (including our travel) on climate change. Every day the normal activities of our lives have a direct impact on the volumes of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and other "greenhouse gases" released into the atmosphere. Our personal contribution to these emissions is often referred to as our "carbon footprint".

The Carbonfund.org website provides you with a way to understand the impacts we all have, and also to calculate the CO2 emissions created by your travel plans. This provides the basis for you to contribute toward offsetting these CO2 emissions through various projects throughout the world.

Where does my money go?

Carbon Offset Projects

Any contributions made to CarbonFund.org are shared between a number of projects.

Carbonfund.org supports three types of carbon offset projects; each type plays an important role in the fight against climate change. The projects they support are third-party certified to meet the same high standards that thousands of companies, organizations, and governments rely on to ensure quality environmental protection.

  1. Renewable Energy and Methane
  2. Energy Efficiency & Carbon Credits
  3. Reforestation & Avoided Deforestation

We know some people prefer renewable energy, while others prefer trees or efficiency. So seeing as it’s your carbon, the offset project is your choice. When you donate, you have the option of selecting your preferred carbon offset type.
