WALKERS TOURS

CHALLANGE

As Sri Lanka's destination management company with a fleet of nearly 600, ranging from large coaches to luxury cars, all of which release large amounts of greenhouse gases (GHGs) into the atmosphere each time they they take off on tours throughout the country.

ACTION

  • Assessed total GHGs of Walkers Tours fleet of vehicles to determine the amount of credits needed to offset their footprint.

  • Implemented a management plan to accurately measure, manage and continuously mitigate the fleets emissions.

RESULTS

Walkers Tours was awarded with Asia's first and only CarbonNeutral® Fleet. 

They have offset their emissions to 'net zero' by investing in local and international renewable energy projects by purchasing registered Carbon Credits to match our fleet footprint each year

“Our CarbonNeutral® Certification is a clear statement to our industry that we are committed to responsible tourism and value highly the importance of good environmental practices.”
