Carbon Neutral

Why Lindblad is carbon neutral

Lindblad Expeditions recognizes that travel contributes to the overall carbon footprint affecting the Earth’s climate, and, as a result, has chosen to become a 100% carbon neutral company. Lindblad is committed to eliminating and reducing emissions wherever possible, and offsetting those that cannot be eliminated. Through a partnership with South Pole, the world’s leading developer of international emission reduction projects, Lindblad has a portfolio of six investments—in renewable energy, reforestation, and community-based efforts—that align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

In his own words: Sven Lindblad

“I see global climate change as the single most important issue of our time. And I want to spark more than just awareness and hope; I want to inspire action. After listening to scientists, educators, politicians, and the voices of young people like Greta Thunberg—and combining these perspectives with what we’re observing in the natural world—I feel compelled to greatly accelerate what I can do personally and professionally to address this issue.

This is why, as announced on June 7 (but retroactive to January 1, 2019), Lindblad Expeditions is becoming a carbon neutral travel company. We have always had an ethic of conservation across our fleet and offices, but the demand for bigger, bolder, and more sustained efforts to combat global climate change is greater now than ever before.”
