We have some really exciting news to share! Osborne Heli Tours has teamed up with leading firm, Carbon Neutral to offset greenhouse gas emissions from all tour flights.
We have proudly offset greenhouse gas emissions since the middle of 2017 and commit to offsetting on all tour flights going forward. Every seat purchased on an Osborne Heli Tours flight will be offset through the partnership with Australian based firm, Carbon Neutral.
The process occurs through sequestering carbon (or carbon sequestration)– a project involving the reforestation of non-productive farmland in Western Australia. The replanting of mixed native Australian tree species not only helps in capturing carbon dioxide emissions but also aids in re-establishing habitats for native wildlife.
We understand that the aviation industry contributes considerably to global greenhouse gas emissions and this is something we could do to make a positive change. Our home in Tasmania is amongst an area of amazing natural value, and along with our other environmental controls, this investment means that we are taking a step in the direction of minimising our impact.
