Aurora Expeditions certified 100% Carbon Neutral as part of an ongoing active sustainability plan
This key milestone—achieved in partnership with South Pole, a leading emission reductions project developer and global climate action expert—is the latest step in Aurora’s ongoing commitment to help protect and preserve the planet.
“For more than 30 years, Aurora Expeditions has been deeply committed to responsible and respectful travel,” says CEO Monique Ponfoort.
“As one of the world’s leading polar expedition operators, we are always seeking ways to innovate, educate and create a positive impact for our planet, and we will continue our active sustained efforts to help preserve the beauty and majesty that Mother Nature possesses,” she adds.
The South Pole Climate Neutral Company certification has been achieved by a combination of key sustainability initiatives across the company’s business operations.
In a three-step plan in partnership with South Pole, Aurora Expeditions calculates all GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions across its business operations annually.
Aurora then compensates for these emissions by purchasing carbon credits from climate action projects that meet the highest international standards and sets must-reach goals, targets and timelines to ensure its emission reduction and sustainability programs are best-in-class.
Voted the ‘World’s Leading Polar Expeditions Operator’ in the 2020 World Travel Awards, Aurora Expeditions has chosen to support two climate action projects.
Aurora invests in InfraVest Tongyuan Wind Farm, a renewable energy project in northwest Taiwan harnessing wind power for a sustainable and secure energy future.
