We believe the world has reached an environmental crisis. Without drastic action to reduce greenhouse gases, to remove and recycle plastics in the ocean and initiatives to combat water and air pollution our planet will loose the ability to repair itself. Ecosystems on a global scale will collapse and humankind will struggle to survive.
Expedition Engineering already donates 1% of all gross sales to grass roots environmental organizations through the 1% for the Planet initiative. We also offset all flights taken by our staff and we encourage our guests to do the same. Our recycling program in Indonesia not only reduces the amount of plastic on the beaches but also educates the locals on the importance of recycling.
In an effort to step up our commitment to environmental causes we have increased our donations program. Five percent of all direct bookings made with Expedition Engineering will be donated to a certified environmental organization. Each of these organizations have been vetted by the 1% for the Planet program and are a trusted partner. When booking a trip with Expedition Engineering, guests will have the ability to choose which organization their funds will go to.
This donations program does not affect the cost of your trip.
Please see the list below and select which organization you would like your funds to be donated too.
Please select up to 3 charities from the list below and input that selection in your booking form. Upon receiving full payment for your trip, Expedition Engineering will donate a total of 5% of the trip cost in equal portions to those Environmental Charities. You can find out more about each charity and their environmental focus by clicking on their included links.

We have a simple mission – encourage and support people to take effective action on climate change, to drive demand for low carbon products, companies and investments. And by doing so accelerate the transition to a low carbon economy.
The good news is that we are aware of the solutions to climate change and there is significant awareness and action around these. And its pretty simple – we just need to move rapidly to a low carbon economy. What is worrying, is that we have left this extremely late, there is a very high level of risk which is poorly understood by many and there still appear to be a number of powerful entities and individuals seeking to delay climate action. http://protectourwinters.uk
