Offset your carbon footprint

Climate change is everyone’s responsibility, and Backyard Travel is committed to environmental sustainability.

We offset our carbon by supporting projects that help reduce emissions in Asia, such as planting trees and promoting greener energy.

We also invite our guests to play a role in preserving our beautiful planet by offsetting the carbon emitted on their holidays.

How can you offset the carbon?

At the time of booking a trip, you can choose to upgrade your holiday by making it carbon neutral.

Working with experts in the carbon market, we’ve developed a measurement system to calculate the average carbon footprint of certain travel activities.

We measure carbon using four key indicators:

Only US$1.50 per person per day!

help forest in Indonesia

Help protect forests and empower local communities in Indonesia

Indonesia’s biodiversity is threatened by rampant deforestation and the destruction of endemic species and their natural habitats.

By engaging with five local communities, the project reduces forest fires, illegal poaching and unsustainable harvesting of forest products.

It recognizes and secures land tenure and allows community members to sustainably manage their 5,336 ha primary forest.

Our expected impact: a minimum of 5,000 tonnes of carbon to be purchased

Can you give me an example of how the carbon footprint of my holiday is calculated?

  • Travelling by car for 150km in a standard minivan produces 0.04 tonnes of carbon.
  • Staying in a standard four-star hotel in Asia produces 0.014 tonnes of carbon.
  • A standard boat tour of few hours produces 0.020 tonnes of carbon

This averages out to be approximately US$1.50 per person including rest days.

love the earth - carbon neutral holidaysSo, for a 10-day holiday, it’ll cost US$15 to offset the land portion of your entire holiday.
What a deal!

Verification and Transparency

We offset emissions through the purchase of carbon credits on the voluntary carbon market.

We work with a balanced portfolio of projects across Asia.

1. For air travel, we work with Gold Standard–certified projects.

2. For the carbon-neutral holidays package, we work with Plan Vivo certificates.

They are both available on the Market Directory and internationally recognized certification schemes.

We believe in having a balanced portfolio because we want to impact change at multiple levels of the value chain.

From supporting projects that work with local communities to reforest their surrounding ecosystems, all the way through to large-scale reforestation and forest protection projects.
