Tourism Vancouver Commits to "Greening" Its Flights

Tourism Vancouver has committed to "greening" all of its air travel with the purchase of carbon offset credits through Uniglobe Travel's Green Flight program. According to Tourism Vancouver, it is the only program of its type in Canada and Tourism Vancouver is the first destination marketing organization to commit to offsetting all of their flights through the program. In 2007, Tourism Vancouver will offset about 220 metric tons of emissions resulting from the organization's air travel through investing in sustainable green energy projects in Western Canada that have been approved by the federal government. The organization will not only offset flights taken by staff traveling for sales and marketing business, but also those flights purchased to bring travelers clients, customers and media to Vancouver.
