In an era where climate change poses an imminent threat to our planet, companies across various industries are stepping up to play a crucial role in mitigating its effects. TripMapper partners with Stripe Climate in a commitment to contribute to the removal of carbon from the atmosphere.
TripMapper donates 1% of its revenue from both its tour operator software (TripMapper for Business) and its consumer travel planning platform (TripMapper) to support carbon removal initiatives facilitated by Stripe Climate. This collaboration comes at a time when the need for innovative solutions to counteract climate change has never been more pressing.
Alongside carbon offsetting, carbon removal is a critical component of the fight against climate change. To avert the most catastrophic effects, global efforts must be directed toward limiting the average temperature increase. Achieving this requires not only a drastic reduction in new emissions but also the removal of existing carbon from the atmosphere.
While traditional methods such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration play vital roles, they alone may not be sufficient to address the scale of the problem. Enter new carbon removal technologies - innovations that have the potential to be both high volume and low cost by 2050. However, these technologies face a significant challenge in their early stages, often struggling to attract enough customers due to higher costs. The paradox lies in the fact that without widespread adoption, they cannot achieve the economies of scale needed to become more cost-effective.
Stripe Climate recognises this conundrum and has devised a solution known as 'Frontier', an advanced market commitment to buy $1 billion or more of permanent carbon removal by 2030. The goal is to foster a shift in the trajectory of the industry and increase the likelihood the world has the portfolio of solutions needed to avoid the worst effects of climate change.
TripMapper's decision to partner with Stripe Climate aligns seamlessly with this forward-thinking approach. Through this partnership, TripMapper becomes an early purchaser, actively supporting the development and scale-up of new carbon removal technologies. This collaboration demonstrates that all businesses can actively participate in addressing climate change, offering hope that, collectively, we can make a significant impact.
As travellers increasingly prioritise sustainability, initiatives like TripMapper's partnership with Stripe Climate showcase a commitment to environmental responsibility.
Through using the TripMapper for Business tour operator software tour operators, DMCs and travel agents will be contributing to supporting carbon removal initiatives, which travellers increasingly prioritising sustainability will certainly appreciate.
