WITH US YOUR ROAD TRIP IS ENVIRONMENTALLY NEUTRAL!
We are committed to provide you with an unforgettable adventure with the guarantee that every kms traveled in our campervans are offset in terms of climate.
By renting one of our campervans, you are contributing to the production of renewable energy that supplies thousands of families in Oaxaca, Mexico.
HOW IS THE CO2 FOOTPRINT MEASURED?
The measurement of CO2 emissions produced directly by Mr.Vancamper’s campervans is based on the technical characteristics of the vehicles supplied by the manufacturers (average emission in grams of CO2 per km driven).
The kms travelled by each campervan are obtained from Mr.Vancamper’s official records, allowing us to calculate exactly the tons of CO2 emissions for each campervan over a year.
DOES MR.VANCAMPER GUARANTEE CLIMATE NEUTRALITY?
At present, there are still no campervans with zero CO2 emissions on the market. Until then, we intend to compensate, through donations, the emissions produced by our clients when they rent our campervans.
The principle of climate neutrality consists of supporting internationally recognized climate protection projects by contributing an amount that is calculated on the basis of our CO2 emissions.
As greenhouse gases (GHGs) spread evenly in the atmosphere, the geographical location of the projects we support is indifferent. The important thing is that the climate protection project is certified according to international standards, as is the case with the project supported by Mr.Vancamper.
WHAT IS THE PROJECT SPONSORED BY MR.VANCAMPER?
Oaxaca II, III and IV produce electricity to cover the consumption of 700,000 Mexican homes, avoiding the emission of 670,000 metric tons of CO2, equivalent to the cleaning effect of 33.5 million trees on the atmosphere through the process of photosynthesis.
ACCIONA, one of the leading Spanish companies in the IBEX 35 and present in more than 40 countries, offers its expertise in the design of a better planet, providing a response to infrastructure, water and energy needs through innovative, responsible solutions that generate real progress based on an unusual, alternative way of doing business. The company thus carries out its business activities based on the commitment to contribute to the economic, environmental and social development of the communities in which it operates.
In Oaxaca State (Mexico), ACCIONA contributes to its sustainable development by means of an extensive social initiatives program whose investment comes from the next renewable generation plants: Oaxaca II, III, IV and Eurus wind farms. Almost 500k euros have been dedicated to develop these initiatives in which more than 30000 people have been benefited.
