Adventure Base recognises that we are in a state of climate emergency. Unless we restore a safe climate at speed, there will be a dramatic and irreversible impact on our mountains, glaciers and wildlife. We are already seeing more intense and frequent climate events such as heatwaves, rapid glacier melt, flooding, forest-fires and biodiversity extinctions that were predicted to not happen for another 100 years.
Make no mistake, this is a climate emergency.
We are committed to delivering complete transparency across our business as to how we operate, the impact we are having on the environment and the actions we are taking to mitigate and reduce that impact. This in turn, will hold us accountable but also induce impactful change within Adventure Base and encourage other travel operators to follow suit and do the same.
We will be creating monthly updates that focus on the progress we are making. We invite your feedback, as our valued clients, on our direction and if you have any ideas, then of course we are all ears!
Introducing our Head of Sustainability
This month we saw Tom join the team as head of sustainability. He brings a wealth of experience and personal passion to the team, having worked for some of the largest consultancies in the UK, specifically within the world of sustainability.
Tom will be tackling the pressing issue of how AdventureBase can become net zero and reduce their environmental impact whilst still delivering world class experiences to their clients.
We’re very excited to have Tom join our team and we look forward to telling you all about the progress we’re making in November’s newsletter.
October Round Up
As promised in our October newsletter, we’re back to give you an update on our progress towards the AdventureBase climate pledge and our 2023 targets.
October saw some great initial progress made in regards to sustainability. We held a number of workshops whereby we sat down as a team and put a spotlight on all the areas that Adventure Base had some form of negative impact on the environment, whether that be through the greenhouse gas emissions from business activity or the impact we have on the local infrastructure and community. From here we then categorised these into one of three categories of climate emission scopes.
