• Who We Are

    The Good Traveler is a non-profit collaboration between airports and the organizations they connect with, on a mission to make travel sustainable. We offer carbon offset purchase as an optional amenity to passengers who want balance out the environmental impact of their flight. We are also working towards more efficiently investing airport revenue into offsetting the carbon footprint of our ground operations under the Airport Council International's Airport Carbon Accreditation program.


    We work with individual travelers, businesses whose staff travel, hotels, shops, holiday destinations, cafes (who depend on travel) and non-profits. Together we make travel sustainable by offering convenient, affordable, meaningful carbon offsetting to their visitors. Contact us if you want to join in.
