The climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time, and carbon emissions rise is the main cause. During the last years, transport contributed 27% of total carbon in the EU-28, while tourism in particular (including travel) was responsible for around 8-10% of global GHGe. Taking that into consideration, one of the main challenges is how to achieve a more sustainable travel and tourism approach. Research points out that one of the main barriers for travelers is the lack of available or appealing options for making more sustainable travel choices. tuCO2, provides a robust and credible option, to measure and offset travel and accommodation carbon footprint.
Even small individual actions can have a massive impact in the fight against global warming, and tuCO2 mission is to empower people to achieve Net Zero travel! Travelling inevitably produces carbon emissions, and tuCO2 offers a user-friendly tool, that helps travelers to calculate and offset those carbon emissions, making their journey Carbon Neutral. Carbon offsets is a way to compensate for travel carbon footprint, by supporting projects that help reduce carbon emissions, conserve vulnerable ecosystems and advance the clean energy transition. Furthermore, on our website (Tips & Suggestions) you can find tips on how to reduce the carbon emissions produced by your trip, and suggestions for low or net zero carbon hotels, transportation, and other activities.
tuCO2 was developed & run by a strongly motivated team of highly trained multidisciplinary professionals (environmental engineers, app developers, web designers, data scientists, marketing experts etc.). The core team is:
