Offset Your Air Travel

How to offset carbon emissions produced from your flight

By choosing to travel with World Expeditions you are choosing to travel responsibly, and it is our goal to make sustainability as simple as possible. Travelling often requires a large element of air travel, which is why we offer the opportunity to offset carbon emissions produced from your flight.  

At the time of booking, you will have the option to offset one tonne of carbon, which equates to USD$16.00 / CAD$21.00. When you opt in, this amount will be added to your invoice.

The carbon offsets we purchase on your behalf are sourced from the reputable carbon management company South Pole Group, and the credits we have in stock support wind power projects in Turkey, China and India.

Supporting these projects contributes to their economic viability, shifting the focus from fossil fuel energy to renewable energy.

Ziyaret Wind Power Project (Turkey)

Located at the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, the wind farm contributes to the development of renewable energy in Turkey through the use of 30 wind turbines that produce 75MW of electricity annually. The project also generates jobs while supporting rural communities and their education programs.


Yuxian Baiyantuo Wind Project (China)

In addition to reducing the combustion of fossil fuels by generating electricity from wind instead of coal-fired power plants and improving the air quality by reducing harmful pollutants, the Yuxian Baiyantuo Phase I & II Wind Project provides social and economic benefits to the remote region.


Tamil Nadu Wind Project (India)

While Tamil Nadu is one of India's more prosperous states, it is estimated that greater than 20 percent of the state’s population lives below the poverty line and suffers from problems such as class and gender discrimination and inter-district and urban-rural disparities. The Tamil Nadu Wind Project benefits the region in many ways, including helping to alleviate poverty by generating employment, contributing to the provision of basic amenities, improving access to a reliable electricity supply and reducing the level of air pollution resulting from fossil fuel combustion.
