|Responsible Travel, Conservation, Community and Environmental Policy|
Conservation of the places we visit is a priority for us and our first objective is to minimise any potential impact your visit with us may have. More than that, through the experiences we offer, you can make an active positive contribution towards the conservation of some of the world's most important and endangered wildlife and wilderness areas.
Our Environmental policy
It is an inescapable fact that travel involves the burning of fossil fuels and leads to the emission of the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide (CO2). Where we can, we promote low impact travel which is why we favour sailing yachts, canoeing, kayaking and rafting over motorised transport.
As a company, Aqua-Firma is net Carbon and Biodiversity Positive. Our first step towards achieving this is to minimise our CO2 emissions. Where we are unable to eliminate our emissions, we offset them via Rainforest Concern's new Rainforest 4 Carbon project.
We recommend that all of our clients offset the impact of their travel via the Rainforest 4 Climate initiative. For a long haul flight Rainforest 4 Climate recommends a donation to its projects of £20. For a medium haul flight the figure is £10 and for a short haul flight £5.
Aqua-Firma takes its commitment to the environment very seriously and in response to the prospect of global warming having an adverse impact on polar environments, we are the only travel company we know of which offsets the carbon emissions generated by your polar voyage at our expense. We also automatically offset the carbon emissions of flights booked with us for polar voyages.
