You can be a responsible traveller with simple gestures:
  1. Think about the means of transportation: can you replace your air travel with a train trip? Can you carpool?
  2. Book an accommodation with a green label :
    Choose a hotel with a green label. These hotels are concerned to preserve the environment and local resources (e.g. "green key" label). And on the spot:
    • If you are staying in the same hotel for several days, ask to keep your towels.
    • Access to electricity is also limited in some countries. Turn off the electrical appliances and lights in a room when you're not there.
    • Don't waste water because it is a precious resource.
  3. Prepare "green luggage": take a water bottle, choose biodegradable products (soap, sunscreen, detergent, ...) because they are found in water and destroy ecosystems, corals, etc.
  4. Share your equipment (tents, camping equipment, winter sports clothing, etc.).
  5. Preserve the ecosystem:
    • If you are diving, be careful not to touch the corals with your hands and not to step on them with your flippers.
    • Do not feed or touch the animals as this can strongly disrupt their eating habits.
    • Do not pick flowers as some species are in danger of extinction.
  6. Buy and eat local and organic:
    • If you want to eat meat, ask where the meat comes from. Try to get labelled and local meats.
    • For your souvenirs, favour local handicrafts.
  7. Reduce your trash:
    • Don't throw your garbage in the wild and, if you can, pick up waste you find on your way (plastic bags, cans, ...) and put it in the nearest garbage bin. Litter lying around can cost the lives of certain animals (birds, fish, turtles, ...).
    • If you are a smoker, take a pocket ashtray, because a cigarette butt is very dangerous and takes a long time to decompose!
  8. Opt for eco-friendly activities (cycling, walking, surfing, canoeing...).
  9. Compensate for your flight here. You just have to fill in your trip on greentripper.org, you choose your offset project, you pay and Greentripper compensates your impact for you.
  10. Support certified projects. You can offset your CO2 impact by offering a financial contribution to a CO2 reduction project in a developing country. These projects are a guarantee of concrete climate action.
You are a company and you want to limit the environmental impact of your employees?
  1. Prefer TV and video conferencing to air travel. You will save time, money and the environment!
  2. Promote means of transport that pollute the least. Flying from Brussels to London is probably not the best option.
  3. Inform your employees about transport-related greenhouse gas emissions: not only air travel, but also means of transport from home to work, such as company cars.
  4. Reward the best employees who have the lowest CO2 impact.
  5. Neutralise the environmental impact of your employees' air travel and fund projects through CO2 offset programs.
  6. For business trips, choose a hotel or venue with a green label. These places are concerned about preserving the environment and local resources. To help you in your search, there are ecolabels such as the ecolabel Green Key which distinguishes more than 3.200 tourist establishments around the world for their approach and performance in terms of the environment.
