Compensation reduces transport GHG emissions by a equivalent quantity. Although some emissions cannot be eliminated, we can offset their impact on the environment by funding and supporting charity and community projects working to reduce emissions in developing countries.
To help it in its undertaking, Club Med has chosen to partner the GoodPlanet Foundation's program Action Carbone. This foundation chaired by Yann Arthus-Bertrand received the support of the French Environment and Energy Management Agency, ADEME, when it was launched in 2006.
Club Med elected to take part in non-renewable biomass community projects, known as "diffuse emission reduction projects", such as those concerning:
✓ Disseminating use of renewable energies for cooking and heating purposes
✓ Improving equipment energy efficiency
✓ Developing new alternate energy solutions
