From our founder to our office staff,
sustainability is a priority for all of us here
at Meet and Greet.
We believe that sustainability will be a necessary choice in the next years, but it will take longer to be properly implemented. We think that today is the day to start this journey, working closely with our clients and suppliers, step by step.
We studied how to apply sustainability to our business model and to our market area and we decided to go down this road by setting these three goals: (1) Be a sustainable and ethical company, (2) Support the fight against the climate change, (3) Be promoters of change in the tourism industry
Partners Awarness Campaign
Working only with partner who have a certification of sustainability
Working only with partner who have a declared plan of CO2 reduction
We worked with Trees for Italy to define the best methods to compensate CO2 emissions, showing that it is possible for tourism to take real action in protecting the Earth.
Travel package carbon footprint is calculated by adding each service CO2 emissions in kg. The calculation is based on CO2 emissions in kg per participant given the number of participants, we can provide you with the total CO2 emissions of each travel package.
Every travel-related service has an index of kg CO2 eq per person; by adding all services the result is the total kg of CO2eq, which is the amount that has to be compensated to make the travel package Carbon Neutral.
Carbon offset is calculated with help of “Rete Clima”, a non-profit third sector company certified to determine how many kg of CO2 is emitted by every tourism service or product.
Emission factors are calculated with a LCEA (Life Cycle Energy Analysis) method, analysing energy consumption and converting these values to a percentage based on environmental impact.
Trees for Italy emission factors guarantee the achievement of Carbon Neutrality in compliance with rigorous international standards. All tools, assumptions, and documents used to calculate emission factors are available and accessible for consultation by everyone looking for further information
We calculate the carbon footprint of every tour and service we offer.
At the beginning of each month, we calculate total CO2 emitted by tours and services that have been provided in the previous month, and we communicate this information to our partner, Trees for Italy.
Trees for Italy offsets CO2 emissions through internatinal project of carbon offset, certified according to Gold Standard or Verra Standard or CDM standard.
Trees for Italy also realizes two different types of environmental prjects the Italian territory:
