Travel tends to get a bad rap among environmentalists due to the carbon emissions from aircraft.
Chooose, a leader in technology-based climate action based in Oslo, Norway, creates digital tools allowing consumers to integrate climate action into everyday life and business. The company has partnered with newly launched online travel agency Copolo to help travellers offset their carbon footprint when making bookings on the site, counterbalancing the environmental impact of their travel.
After using the online tool on Copolo’s booking platform, travellers who offset their journey will receive a certificate recognising that their travel footprint has been climate compensated. Copolo will also provide a post-purchase experience to empower its travellers to claim, track, and engage with the impact they create, allowing for complete transparency.
Copolo – named after the famed writer, traveller, and explorer Marco Polo – believes that by working toward small changes collaboratively, it can help start building a better tomorrow by offering more sustainable travel solutions.
“We will continue investing in the most sophisticated systems to maintain our pursuit of excellence and building a better tomorrow,” said executive officer of Copolo, Hideo Hatano. “By partnering with Chooose, we can make a meaningful difference while allowing travellers the opportunity to offset the carbon emissions produced from their journey.”
Copolo is a division of Tokyo-based H.I.S. Group, which has 333 branches in 62 countries across the globe.
“Developing innovative climate solutions in partnership with Copolo will help scale climate action globally, and their commitment will be a solid contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals,” says Andreas Slettvoll, CEO and Founder of Chooose.
The company is accelerating the access and adoption of climate solutions across a range of key technologies – from nature-based solutions to carbon removal to Sustainable Aviation Fuel.
