Meravando arranges cruise holidays on its website and is breaking new ground in the process. For example, the Cologne-based travel provider assumes the compensation costs for the previously calculated CO2 emissions of the selected trips - at its own expense. Thus the start-up company donates a large part of the commission it receives from the shipping companies for a travel booking to one of myclimate's many high-quality carbon offset projects. For clients, neither a higher price nor additional effort is incurred. In addition, Meravando wants to create awareness for the environmental impact of the trips and therefore transparently reports the CO2 emissions of each individual cruise. For this reason, Meravando received the myclimate Award in the category "Pioneer Booking of Climate Neutral Cruises" from myclimate.
Meravando co-founder Thomas Tibroni accepted the award: "We are very happy about the myclimate Award 2020. We were able to put our vision of offering climate-neutral cruises into practice and are proud to make this form of travel a little bit more environmentally friendly. We very much hope that the cruise industry will soon be able to pick up speed again and that as many cruise passengers as possible will continue to use the option of free offsetting by Meravando. Our entire team would like to thank you again for the award and the good cooperation with myclimate!
