At International Yoga, we believe that world travel and yoga have the power to transform. As a travel company, we also recognize our responsibility to sustain and protect the beautiful places we get to visit and enjoy. We understand that flying on airplanes has a significant impact on global warming due to the emission of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2) and other pollutants released during flights. We take a holistic approach to sustainability, reducing our climate impact by offsetting our flights every time we travel.
Purchasing high-quality carbon offsets is an effective way to reduce emissions globally and create sustainable development benefits for communities around the world. Carbon credits purchased through The Gold Standard’s marketplace are retired in real-time with full traceability, and proceeds benefit project developers directly, enabling them to maintain and expand their project activity and deliver more climate and sustainable development impact.
We invite you to join us in reducing our carbon footprint and contributing to a more sustainable future. Read below for steps to offset your flights after booking your retreat with us! With your participation, we can help conserve the areas that we have the privilege of visiting. We thank you for your contribution and look forward to traveling with you soon!
Visit The Gold Standard’s marketplace HERE to select a project to donate to. Simply add the quantity of carbon credits to the cart and follow the checkout instructions. You can use this carbon emissions calculator HERE otherwise, for simplicity, flights to/from IY retreats around the globe average 2-4 metric tons per person/per round-trip flight. And why not aim high? The average carbon footprint for a person in the United States is 15 tons, one of the highest in the world. Go Climate+ rather than simply carbon neutral and offset more than your footprint!
