Give back more to the planet than you take. You’ll fund the highest standard climate projects to accelerate our transition to a sustainable future.
Challenge your carbon footprint
Set goals to reduce your emissions and start on the rewarding journey towards low-carbon living. We’ll help you get started.
Have a positive impact on the climate for as little as $10.50 / month
Why plant trees in Kenya?
Reforestation benefits the earth and local communities.
Supporting the best in climate action
Eden Reforestation Projects reduces extreme poverty and restores healthy forests by employing local villagers to plant millions of trees every year.
Gold Standard is a certification body that works to ensure every penny of climate and development funding goes as far as it can, including toward the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Why climate action matters
Don’t just travel with purpose. Live with purpose.
What’s carbon offsetting?
Put simply, it’s when you invest in projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions elsewhere to compensate for your own emissions. Think of it like a trade: the name of the game is to reach net zero. Plus, many offset projects also deliver social, cultural, economic or environmental benefits. The climate crisis might feel overwhelmingly big, but it’s one small step we can all take to stand together in the face of it.
Changing the way people see the world
Intrepid became carbon neutral in 2010, starting our journey to become the best travel company for the world. It’s required some big changes, but as a part of the travel industry, we have a big responsibility. We believe that travel has the power to change the world, and we want to lead the way.
Not business as usual
Being carbon neutral, this is no longer enough. Based on the facts we know today; we would be lying to ourselves if we were to continue as though there is nothing wrong with the travel industry. So, in January, we declared a climate emergency with Tourism Declares.
We aim to offset more than we emit. We’ve invested in innovative technologies and natural climate solutions like regenerating kelp forests and reforestation. Now we want people like you to join our movement and create positive change.
The best for the world
Travel opens our minds to people, places and things that are different to us. It’s also a big contributor to carbon emissions (flying, in particular). But for us, it’s not a matter of ending travel. It’s changing the way we travel.
While your travel with Intrepid is entirely carbon offset – and does a lot of other good – we know more can be done. That’s why we want to inspire you to go the extra mile and offset your day-to-day life with Gold Standard projects, all while helping us regenerate Kenya’s Kijabe forest.
As an Intrepid offsetter you will:
- Plant hundreds of trees per year.
- Watch your forest grow on your profile.
- Learn about living a lower carbon lifestyle.
- Set goals to reduce your footprint.
- Join the climate action movement.
We answer your questions
Is my carbon footprint that big?
It’s very likely your carbon footprint exceeds the targets required to solve the climate crisis. Even if your food is plant-based, local and in season, there’s a mind-boggling carbon cost for almost anything you spend your money on.
With Ecologi we’ll help you become carbon aware of everyday things and start your journey to low carbon living.
