CO2 COMPENSATION OF YOUR TRIP
Anyone traveling to Sardinia by plane inevitably causes a not inconsiderable CO2 emission and thus negative effects on the environment and the travel destination. We have been committed to reducing these effects since 2019 by supporting reforestation and fire protection measures. If you wish, you can – depending on the season – take part in these local initiatives and support the forest administration in particular with targeted tree-planting campaigns. We work together with projects in Barbagia and Gallura. Just get in touch – we look forward to your active support!
OUR VALUES ARE ALSO CONVERTED INTO CONCRETE ACTIONS
through the cooperation with Sardinian associations and the collaboration with European bodies engaged with sustainable tourism actions, including the VVE (eco-responsible travel and tour operators in France), the AITR (Italian organisation for responsible tourism), “Tourism Declares a Climate Emergency” and others.
