Sierra Club Outings and Carbon Offsets

We are proud to announce our partnership with NativeEnergy Travel Offsets. Now when you book a trip with us, you can calculate the approximate amount of carbon emitted by your travel to your destination and pay a corresponding sum toward a wind project to help "offset" your emissions.

Want to try it out? Calculate your emissions now.

Baffled by the whole concept? So were we! That's why we went through a thorough research and proposal process to decide whether we should offer offsets. Here are the questions we asked ourselves:

> How does travel impact global warming?
> Where does your money go and how does it "offset" your travel?
> Why doesn't Sierra Club just offer "carbon-neutral" trips?
> How did we choose NativeEnergy?
> Isn't this just "greenwashing"?
> What else can you do to fight global warming?
