RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL WITH ADVENTURES OVERLAND

An Environmental, Social & Governance Initiative

RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL

An attempt to travel around the world in a conscious and sustainable manner, minimising negative impact on the planet and its inhabitants

WHY ADVENTURES OVERLAND

As our world becomes smaller and resources become rarer, it is prudent to take corrective action. Being a Responsible travel company, our brand of tourism has far more purpose than simply going to a destination. We want to empower eco-travelers, support the idea of conscious travel for the direct benefit of wildlife, natural areas, and the people who live there.

An example project directly impacted through the carbon offset initiative by Adventures Overland:

The Phobrang Project: ‘A Billion Trees across the Himalayas’
The Phobrang project aims to build a sustainable development model for all Himalayan villages, a village-urban citizen level partnership where the villagers take ownership of our collective Himalayan ecosystem with the support and commitment of city dwellers across the world.

The Phobrang project is a pilot that will establish the viability for creating self-sustaining eco-systems above 12,000 ft. through smart greening, green building, renewable water and energy, co-operative governance, and permaculture principles. Where people, flora and fauna are in harmony with the earth and Ladakh’s history, materials, colours, design and
materials.

CARBON OFFSET

Every time you fly, drive, take a taxi, or use any mode of transport, you are generating carbon footprints, that harm the nature. While there are many ways to minimise the footprints, certain emissions are unavoidable.

HOW DOES CARBON OFFSETS WORK?

Trees absorb and store CO2 emissions

A baby tree absorbs 5.9 KG CO2 annually; a 10 year old tree could absorb upto 22 KG CO2

A worldwide planting programme of 1.2 trillion trees spanning 1.7 billion hectares, could remove 2/3 of all human-activity-related emissions presently in the atmosphere.
