As we become more aware of our impact on the environment, it’s important to find ways to reduce our carbon footprint and travel in a sustainable way.
One way to do this is by choosing to travel in a way that is either net zero or carbon neutral. But what’s the difference between these two approaches, and which one is the most effective at reducing the environmental impact oftravel?
Net zero travel offsets the carbon emissions of a trip by investing in projects that remove an equivalent amount of carbon from the atmosphere, such as planting trees or using carbon capture technology.
Carbon neutral travel offsets the carbon emissions of a trip through the purchase of carbon credits, which represent real, verifiable reductions in greenhouse gas emissions achieved by a third party.
At tuCO2, we believe that carbon neutral travel is the more effective option for reducing the environmental impact of travel because it directly offsets carbon emissions. And with tuCO2 app, you can be sure that the carbon offsets you purchase come from certified projects that are listed on the UN Carbon Offset Platform. With tuCO2, it’s easy to calculate your carbon footprint and offset your emissions through the purchase of carbon credits from trusted and certified projects.
So next time you’re planning a trip, consider making it a more sustainable one and do your part to help protect the environment.
