In 2008 Explore Worldwide became the first major travel company to offset its carbon emissions from air travel. For every flight taken by a customer or staff member, Explore makes a donation to Cool Earth. The funds support indigenous communities to protect their rainforest, and to date the partnership has locked in over 120,000 tonnes CO2 , far exceeding Explore’s emissions.
"Explore are extremely proud to support Cool Earth in their worthy quest to save the rainforest. Working with local communities to achieve positive results is a fundamental ethos of Explore, so a partnership with Cool Earth is an obvious and exciting choice. We believe in empowerment through education and recognise that without community engagement we will lose more and more of our precious rainforest."
