Our Environmental Responsibility

NOMAD Sea Kayaking works hard to minimise & manage our impact on our environment. We are particularly focused on our CO2 emissions. So we measure the CO2 emissions for each guest on each of our trips & courses. 

Through our charity NOMAD Community Projects, we offset our own CO2 footprint as a business.

We achieve this by planting tree saplings & hedging on land we manage in Clopton, Suffolk, UK.  For a detailed breakdown of how we make our calculations, please mouse click ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY.

See the CARBON EMISSIONS  for NOMAD Sea Kayaking for all of our events.
