We offer everybody travelling with Diamond Star Experience the option of making a donation to offset the carbon emissions. The recommended donation for a short-haul flight (say Turkey) is £5 per person. For a long-haul flight we suggest £10.
The organisation we work with for carbon offset purchase is Gold Standard. Internationally recognised and originally founded by the WWF it is one of the most respected Carbon Offset organisations and supported by over 80 NGOs, with 1400 projects currently underway worldwide
Gold Standard was established in 2003 by WWF and other international NGOs to ensure projects that reduced carbon emissions featured the highest levels of environmental integrity and also contributed to sustainable development. With the adoption of the Paris Climate Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals, we launched a best practice standard for climate and sustainable development interventions, Gold Standard for the Global Goals, to maximise impact, creating value for people around the world and the planet we share.
Gold Standard is a small NGO with a big impact. Established in 2003, Gold Standard projects have already prevented more than 100 million tonnes of CO2 from entering our atmosphere.
But we must do more.
Climate change is one of the greatest threats to our planet. To protect our planet and its people from catastrophic effects, we need to keep global warming well below 2oC. We can only meet this goal if everybody – governments, businesses, the public sector and individuals – commits to ambitious action.
Please support us in our mission to catalyse more ambitious climate action, and to ensure that climate initiatives around the world benefit the climate and its people as much as possible, by donating to Gold Standard.
