We believe that seeing the world broadens your horizon, and that you can also make sustainable choices within the craziness of the travel industry
With the new season, the program has embarked on a new, more sustainable path and maps the CO₂ footprint of the program.
3 op Reis believes that seeing the world broadens your horizon and that traveling is beautiful and expensive. Traveling brings people in the world closer together. Traveling provides more tolerance and understanding. Traveling ensures that you not only see the rest of the world, but also your own trusted world through different eyes. In addition, our planet is of course breathtakingly beautiful.
People will always keep traveling, that's just the way it is. We also travel by plane and that is something you can't, and we don't want to stop. But as a traveler you can make conscious choices. Because every choice you make has a direct impact on your environment and the people who live there.
A first choice that you can make right away is offset your CO₂ journey.
How do you calculate the CO2 emissions of the program?
That is a tough job, because we want to include not only our flights in the compensation, but also the cars we drive, the boats we sail on, and the hotels we sleep in. The one time the crew sleeps in a homestay, the other time in a large hotel at an airport (we always try to go for the greenest possible choice!) On one trip the crew drives around in a van, on the other in a 4x4.
That is why we keep track of every journey where people sleep, where people drive, how many kilometers are made, and which flights we take to get the most complete picture possible. The crew at the office is also looked at: who drives the car to Hilversum and how many kilometers are made?
On the basis of this we can see what we have emitted in CO₂ this season.
We aim to travel more sustainably, and hopefully to have fewer emissions during the following season.
