Our Commitment To The Environment


Our mission is to protect this magnificent and pristine environment for future generations to enjoy. That’s why every Antarctica Flight is carbon neutral and why we give back through supporting important Antarctic science and conservation. 

Carbon Neutral

We are proud to work with Carbon Neutral to offset the carbon emissions from every Antarctica Flight. Through certified carbon credits purchased under the Gold Standard, an international certification body for carbon offsets, we are contributing to projects that not only provide positive benefits to the climate, but also achieve social and economic ‘co-benefits’.

 

Fuel emissions for each Antarctica Flight has been calculated on 14 flying hours on a Dreamliner 787 using Jet A1 fuel. The Gold Standard carbon credits purchased through Carbon Neutral contribute to Australian Native Reforestation, in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor. See more information on this project here.

Antarctic Science Foundation

We are pleased to support the Antarctic Science Foundation, an international charity investing in Antarctic and Southern Ocean research to better understand and protect the region and the planet from climate change.

Through our OneTomorrow Charitable Fund, you can donate to critical Antarctic science in the areas of climate, wildlife and oceans, and have your tax deductible donation matched to double your impact. Visit OneTomorrow to donate, learn more and see the full conditions.

 

Mawson's Huts Foundation

Onboard our flights, we are proud to be joined by representatives from the Mawson’s Huts Foundation. The Foundation was established as a not for profit charity in 1997 to conserve the historic buildings used by the 1911-14 Australasian Antarctic Expedition at Cape Denison as its main base for two years. They are the birthplace of Australia’s Antarctic heritage. 

Onboard each Antarctica Flight we hold a raffle and auction to raise money for the Foundation as well as screen a special one hour documentary on the history and conservation of Mawson’s Huts.
