Lindblad Expeditions, the expedition travel company rooted in environmental stewardship, is making it easier for travelers to learn about responsible travel and help make more informed decisions when picking a travel company with its brand-new guide, Sustainable Travel: A How-To Guide for Making a Positive Difference to the Planet.
With the return to travel and the ongoing impacts of climate change, sustainability credentials are more than ever impacting traveler’s decisions to seek out companies who not only practice responsible travel but are leading the way in net-zero experiences. Lindblad created this downloadable guide as an educational resource to help travelers navigate the increasingly confusing world of sustainable travel.
The downloadable guide features what Lindblad defines as the six core concepts of sustainable travel: single-use plastics, sustainable food, climate action, protecting nature, culture, and community, and green operations. It also delves into issues such as carbon offsetting, conservation, supporting local cultures and includes the six questions to ask your travel advisor about minimizing your impact on the environment.
“With Lindblad’s legacy in responsible travel and sustainability, we set out to create a resource that travelers can use to make informed decisions about the travel companies that they choose to support,” said Dolf Berle, CEO, Lindblad Expeditions. “The guide will not only educate travelers on how to minimize their footprint while traveling, but it can also help them ask the right questions to their travel advisors and confidently talk about topics that are important to them.”

About Lindblad Expeditions and Sustainability
Lindblad Expeditions’ commitment to environmentally responsible travel and ocean advocacy drives the company’s innovation and leadership in the expedition travel category. The company went carbon neutral in 2019, offsetting 100% of emissions from Lindblad ships, all land-based operations, employee travel, and offices, and eliminating guest-facing single-use plastics across the Lindblad fleet in 2018.
They co-created the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic (LEX-NG) Fund to understand and protect our world’s ocean, restore critical marine and coastal habitats, and foster environmental stewardship in the regions visited by their fleet and beyond. Funding for their work comes from shipboard travelers inspired by their shared mission, and they have raised $19+ million since 1997 to support projects around the world.
