Explore is the first UK based tour operator to offset all flights and ground operations using verifiable carbon credits*, as part of its decarbonisation strategy.

From 1st January 2020, Explore is working to reduce carbon emissions from its operations, as well as working with ClimateCare to offset all remaining carbon emissions from flights and ground operations.

Explore has appointed Prue Stone as its Head of Sustainability to manage this project as part of the company’s long-standing Responsible Travel philosophy. In her new role, Prue will head up Explore’s carbon neutral strategy, as well as initiatives to reduce single-use plastics on its tours and maintaining its head office’s zero-waste-to-landfill status.

Joe Ponte, Managing Director of Explore, commented, “We are really delighted to appoint Prue to the newly-created role of Head of Sustainability. Prue is passionate, knowledgeable and committed to ensuring that we’re doing all we can to operate sustainably both in Head Office and on our trips around the world.  Here at Explore, responsible travel runs through the very core of our business and the ongoing bushfire crisis in Australia, my home country, only goes to show how vital it is that we take action. We’re really excited that as of the 1st January any booking made with Explore will be carbon neutral.”

Prue joined Explore in 2009 after completing a master’s degree in Tourism, Environment and Development at King’s College London.  She initially worked as an Adventure Sales Consultant and more recently held the role of Yield and Capacity Manager. During her career at Explore, Prue has always had a passion for sustainability and has played an integral role in the development of the company’s Responsible Business Forum, leading a company-wide strategy aimed at implementing sustainable initiatives at every level of the business.
