Sustainable Travel Policy


The IPCCs 2018 report on Global Warming of 1.5°C makes clear that:
“limiting global warming to 1.5°C with no or limited overshoot would require rapid and
far-reaching transitions in energy, land, urban and infrastructure (including transport and
buildings), and industrial systems. These systems transitions are unprecedented in terms of
scale…and imply deep emissions reductions in all sectors”
We are running out of time to make this happen.

“Avoiding overshoot and reliance on future large-scale deployment of carbon dioxide removal
(CDR) can only be achieved if global CO2 emissions start to decline well before 2030”.

2030. That’s less than 8 years from now & the only solution is action.


    The policies outlined below outline specific actions we’re taking a business with regards
    sustainable travel & will be added to & developed as our work continues.

    Policy: Transport

    • Discount of 10% on accommodation or experiences for guests who reach us using transport option(s) fuelled by renewable means i.e. foot, electric vehicle, (e)bicycle or sailing boat. 
    • Travel specifically for education or training deemed vital so currently exempt.

    Policy: Domestic Travel

    Policy: Travel within Business

    Details & Inclusions / Exclusions:

    Further ideas to be reviewed

    • Tackling non-tourism based travel i.e. Garden contractors etc
    • Carbon calculating & off-setting of any travel within or on behalf of business by non-renewable means.
