Carbon neutral holidays
Sustainable travel: Sunweb compensates the CO₂ offset
The projects that we fund are independently verified and meet internationally agreed standards, ensuring that the amount of carbon removed from the atmosphere matches what is claimed. We know that carbon offsetting is not the solution to climate change, but it is a vital part of taking responsibility now for our emissions.
We are proud to be one of the first travel providers to offer carbon-neutral holidays and help customers choose more environmentally friendly travel options.
Sunweb takes responsibility for combating climate change. That is why the company covers the costs of the CO2 compensation and you as a customer pay nothing extra.
What is Sunweb Group doing?
For every one of Sunweb Group’s holidays, we calculate carbon emissions generated by travelling to the destination and staying there. We then offset these emissions through third-party-certified low-carbon projects. We recognise that this is not the silver bullet solution to climate change. However, it is an industry-leading step towards tackling the biggest environmental impact of our holidays.
