RESPONSIBILITY FOR the WORLD WE BORROW
We care deeply about the places we travel to, and we work hard to ensure your visit has a positive effect.
We are fully committed to reducing our carbon footprint in this world and ensuring we have a Climate Positive Workforce.
This means every employed team member of Newcastle Tour Company offsets their entire carbon footprint, including emissions from homes, personal travel, holidays, food, hobbies & more.
At Newcastle Tour Company we plant hundreds of trees per year & offer to build more with every booking we receive. You can read a little more about our work in one of our blog posts about how we strive to become more sustainable.
Our commitment to our planet starts at home. We are committed to bringing you authentic experiences, taking your further than others & finding the true essence of North East England.
Taste food that is locally sourced in local restaurants or quirky quality eateries – all personally tested & highly recommended…
Where possible, we only use regionally owned coach & chauffeured travel operators for our tours – we generally know all drivers on who work on our tours in person.
Our local tour guides are all trained & vetted by us to give you a perfect travel experience.
We only work with hand-selected & like-minded partners throughout our region.
Newcastle Tour Company (& Experience North) is proud to support Ecologi & The Eden Projects in their tree planting projects around the globe. We signed up to Ecologi in July 2020 funding Gold Standard climate projects to offset our entire carbon footprint.

Mangrove planting in Madagascar
Madagascar is a nation with over 200,000 species of plants and animals that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. We are helping the non-profit Eden Reforestation Projects as they continue to reforest the island. Eden are world leaders in responsible reforestation, having already planted 265 million trees worldwide.
Cleaner and safer stoves in Malawi
As of 2014, clean cookstoves comprised just 1.3 percent of the addressable market. If adoption grows to 16 percent by 2050, reductions in emissions will amount to 15.8 gigatons of carbon dioxide. The additional benefits to the health of millions of households is not calculated here. Ecologi are working tirelessly to better peoples’ lives.

DOING THINGS PAPERLESS
“Going Paperless” is the ethos of digitising anything that is unnecessarily applied to paper.
We have decided to take on this ethos and supply documents to our guests exclusively digitally.
We minimise paper use in the office and ensure all our contracts and other official documents are sent electronically and signed digitally.
We are proud to now be named “Paperless”.
