Green Travel Guide


Welcome to Magellan’s Green Travel Guide! We’ve developed this resource as a helpful toolkit specifically for private travelers. This library of guides covers topics that pertain to the environmental effects of the transportation industry. Since tourism generates roughly 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions, making it a significant contributor to climate change, we feel compelled to educate and inform. As a result, private travelers can use this toolkit to learn about the future of carbon offsetting. Plus, discover other green initiatives, including Magellan’s role in providing sustainable travel options.
