Trip.com has launched an integrated carbon
solution to enable customers worldwide to address the CO2
emissions of their travel.
The global travel platform has partnered with
climate-tech company Chooose to offer travellers the option to
calculate and offset their flight’s CO2 emissions by supporting
impactful climate solutions around the world.
For a small cost,
travellers’ offsets will support projects that either reduce,
capture, or avoid CO2 emissions in an amount equivalent to the
flight’s calculated emissions.
