Environmental commitment, climate neutral, climate compensated

Our environmental commitment has meant that we have chosen a climate-neutral internal work since 2017 and we have climate-compensated all our customers' international flights since 2019.
We at Scuba Travel, like all companies in Intoit Travel Group does not leave it up to you and all customers to take responsibility for the climate and environment. When you as a customer buy a trip, event or other service from a company in the Intoit Travel Group, climate compensation is always included in the price.

Our environmental work is about taking long-term responsibility in our daily work, in both environmental and social issues, but also to support projects in the areas we work with. Our main focus is to offset the CO2 that our companies and their operations give rise to. We do this by climate compensating not only all air travel but also for the CO2 that hotels, land transport and meals give rise to. 

Our environmental commitment has been ongoing since 2017, when our internal operations became completely climate neutral. From January 2019, 100% climate compensation is always included for all our customers' trips with international flights. You can read more about it here.

Scuba Travel - Climate Neutral Company

As a diver, you are probably, just like us here at Scuba Travel, very concerned about our nature. After all, we constantly experience the wonderful world beneath the surface, and know that it is one of the best places in the world to visit!
Unfortunately, it is the case that the earth's average temperature is rising, which is a direct effect of human activity here, including through increased carbon dioxide emissions but also the devastation of large forest areas that previously absorbed large amounts of carbon dioxide. Aviation today accounts for 3% of man's total CO2 emissions and in Sweden aviation accounts for 4-5% of CO2 emissions (Source LFV.se), but the proportion is predicted to increase sharply in the next 15 years. Measured per passenger kilometer, flying emits more CO2 than any other means of transport. So what can we do to help slow global warming and minimize CO2 emissions from aviation? In fact, much can be done to offset these emissions and improvements are constantly being made to reduce emissions from air traffic.
Did you know that Scuba Travel's office and staff activities are completely climate compensated?
And that when you buy a trip with Scuba Travel, we climate compensate your flight, at no extra cost to you?

Internally at Scuba Travel, all activities that employees do in the company in the form of business trips, consumption of materials, electricity and heating in the office are fully climate-compensated from 2017. The climate compensation is done in collaboration with South Pole and the projects we support are the Paradigm project in Kenya and REDD+ Forest Protection in Zimbabwe. These projects are close to our hearts, so please read more about them below!

Our projects

The Paradigm Project enables the distribution of 1000s of efficient wood stoves and clean water technology to various Kenyan communities. Families now need less wood fuel for cooking and water supply, and the stress on the surrounding forests is reduced. Replacing traditional hotplates with locally made, efficient stoves reduces fuel use by around 50% and reduces toxic emissions by up to 70%. By distributing these modern stoves, the Paradigm project generates household savings of around 15% – money that instead goes to food, school fees and other necessities. The project also promotes increased health through improved indoor air quality, which significantly reduces the number of cases of respiratory diseases and pneumonia. Safe water filters and public water dispensers also help prevent waterborne diseases. Finally, the Paradigm project also creates employment opportunities and economic gains, not least for women who save a lot of time that would otherwise be spent collecting firewood.

REDD+ stands for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation, which includes reduced deforestation and degradation of forests, conservation of forests as well as conservation and increased storage of carbon in forests. The Kariba REDD+ project involves conserving approximately 785 hectares of forest and wildlife. The area is located on the southern shore of Lake Kariba, close to the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. The project connects four different national parks and eight safari reserves, which provides protection to several endangered species such as elephant, lion and hippopotamus. This project is community-based and administered by four different rural districts. The districts work actively to improve the living conditions for the residents of the districts by, among other things, building new, better roads and developing health clinics, as well as ensuring that more people have access to clean water. The project is certified by VCS, CCBA.
