Mauritius Conscious Travel achieves a sustainable milestone.
Mauritius Conscious Travel, a sustainable travel agency in collaboration with AERA Group, the pioneer of carbon finance in Africa, contributes to the carbon neutrality of travellers visiting Mauritius.
Supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Mauritius Conscious Travel has achieved its 1st carbon offset transaction by compensating 79 tons of CO2 emissions. The monetized carbon credits collected by the travel agency are destined, through AERA, to the 1st solar photovoltaic project in Mauritius: La Ferme Bambous.
In their efforts to reduce the CO2 produced by their trips, Mauritius Conscious offers tailor-made packages including eco-friendly accommodations, use of public transportation and non-motorized activities for positive impact including clean-ups in nature, reforestation efforts and bio-agriculture workshops in collaboration with local NGOs.
Romina Tello, CEO of Mauritius Conscious Travel highlights ‘Limiting the negative aspects of tourism is no longer enough. Today, tourism needs to embrace restorative actions to benefit the places we visit.’
