Goals #1 and #2 of our sustainability strategy, How We Tread Right (HWTR) respectively commit to becoming carbon neutral by 2030 or sooner, and to ensuring that 50% of our electricity is secured from renewable sources by 2025. To ensure we are successful, we’ve built a Climate Action Plan. Our five-point plan will help us manage the carbon footprint of our business and tours, and prioritizes reducing and removing emissions ahead of offsetting. In addition, we commit to learning and adapting as technology and innovation help us in our transition to a low-carbon business.
Our plan builds on progress made to date and evaluates how we become a part of the global effort to reach net-zero emissions by mid-century, as outlined by the International Panel on Climate Change.
Beginning in 2022, all our offices and employee air business travel will be offset as part of our Climate Action Plan. In partnership with our carbon offset provider, South Pole, we will compensate these emissions by investing in a verified forest conservation offset project in Victoria, Australia.
