Transport og climate compensation
When travelling with Unitas Travel, it is always possible to compensate for your climate footprint on your travel and we offer different kinds of CO2 and climate compensation. If you are travelling by bus or ferry, climate compensation is always included in the price. As to other forms of transport, CO2 and/or climate compensation can be included as additional purchase.
Climate compensated transport
For climate compensation, we compensate the amount of CO2 emitted in connection with transport to and from your destination. In addition, we use a corresponding amount of money to implement additional measures that prepare the locals on handling climate change. This includes training and education of local farmers, prodcurement of climate-resistant crops, retention of land, shelter for crops etc.

CO2 compensated transport
CO2 compensation refers to 1:1 compensation of the amount of CO2 emitted in connection with transport to and from your destination. One ton of CO2 corresponds to 1.7 tree planted. The trees are planted in our climate forest in Uganda in cooperation with DanChurchAid.
