Responsible Australian Travel
We believe in making every aspect of your experience with us a positive one. So much so that we can even account for the environmental impact of your individual journey.
The Tailor, in partnership with one of Australia’s most respected environmental organisations, Canopy, has created a carbon (CO2) offset program that converts the CO2 emissions from your Australian journey into tree plantings and ultimately the regeneration of the Australian landscape.
This is the most precise and only tailored CO2 offset available for the discerning traveller.
Not only do we offset the carbon emissions from our clients’ journeys, we do the same for The Tailor.
Each year since 2008, Canopy, one of Australia’s most respected environmental organisations, has measured the carbon emissions associated with our office and our work related journeys, including our trips to and from the office each day. These are then fully offset through tree plantings under The Tailor’s ‘100% carbon offset’ program.
Over their lives, the trees planted will absorb all of the CO2 emissions of your Australian journey so you are ‘100% Carbon Offset’. Trees have a survival guarantee and are legally registered on the land title to protect them in perpetuity, even if the land is sold. The forest is self-regenerating and can never be removed. Plantings link up with uncleared woodland and help repair landscapes, promote biodiversity, provide habitat for wildlife and redress soil salinity. All Canopy plantings comply with the Commonwealth Government’s “Carbon Farming Initiative” guidelines.
Calculations are based on your personal journey and not just as an average percentage of all trips. In essence your carbon offset has been hand crafted with the same level of attention to detail as your Australian journey. We understand that travel arrangements do change, and you can be assured that the calculation of the CO2 emissions produced will adapt accordingly.
And to make it simple, you don’t need to do a thing. Your tailored trip is translated into CO2 emissions and the cost itemised on your invoice and included in the total cost of your journey. Should you prefer not to carbon offset your trip just let us know.
As evidence of your contribution to tree plantings to offset your trip, you will receive:
- Documentation detailing the amount of CO2 Canopy has undertaken to ‘lock up’ in trees for you
- Peace of mind and the knowledge that your decision means a personal and positive contribution to the environment.
The trees will be planted and maintained by Canopy who, together with Greening Australia, will handle every aspect of The Tailor ‘100% Carbon Offset’.
The first Tailor Forest has been planted on Morella Station in the Coorong region of South Australia.
The Tailor’s ‘100% Carbon offset’ is a not-for-profit program. The Tailor does not receive any income from this initiative. If you require further information about this program please feel free to contact us by email or phone.
