South Pole’s Climate Protection Project

South Pole TM aims to help individuals and businesses reach sustainability commitments and goals by accelerating the transition of carbon emissions to a low-carbon and climate-resilient economy, whilst at the same time, contributing towards the growth of the renewable energy industry in hopes for a future of 100% renewable global energy. Tour Gold Coast works closely and invests into South Pole’s climate protection project to reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in support of the ‘Protection of Tasmanian Native Forest – Project 1 REDD Forests, Australia’. The carbon credits that South Pole source are from accredited and new renewable energy projects whilst supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Greenfleet Program

Our bus services are an integral part of our tours, in order to take our customers to the National Parks. However, operating these vehicles inevitably releases CO2 into the atmosphere; hence, we participate in this tree planting program to offset this production and restore the balance. During the tour, the guides will ask for a voluntary donation to the program. Please consider supporting this cause for the protection of the environment.
