Sustainability

Your trip's CO2 footprint: 100% offset Did you know that the travel sector is responsible for 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions? At Polartours we are proud to be the first Polar cruise agency to offset all CO2 emissions (also known as the "carbon footprint") caused by our trips. We offer this service for free on all Polartours. The amount of CO2 for each trip will vary, depending on the cruise length, the ship type and on whether flights were included in our offer or not. To offset our carbon emissions we have partnered with the German company Arktik to invest in a Gold-Standard certified renewable energy project, the Santa Marta Landfill Gas Capture Project in southern Santiago de Chile. Here, leaking methane (a greenhouse gas that’s more than 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide!), and biogas are being captured from the waste to generate clean electricity. Around 348,000 tonnes of CO2 are saved each year this way, and it’s a real win-win for everyone involved. We also love the fact that this project is also improving the immediate environment, land and water quality for the 1.2 million people who live within its catchment area.
