Studiosus – Climate-neutral Holidays

Since the summer of 2007, this family business in Munich has been offering its guests the option of compensation their holiday flights with a voluntary donation to the Studiosus Foundation e.V.. Then in 2011, they decided to go one step further. In 2012, Studiosus was the first educational tour operator to offer all land and water travel in the Studiosus and Marco Polo travel services as climate-neutral. This includes bus, rail and boat trips as well as any journeys by jeep or by ferry, for example.

The collective compensation payments are used in the myclimate Gold Standard climate protection project in the state of Karnataka in southern India. The construction of biogas plants there helps more than 600 farming families, thanks to the commitment of Studiosus. For its pioneering role in integrating all compensation costs into the business model, the European market leader in educational travel was presented with the myclimate award at the ITB. Studiosus Reisen München received the award as a «pioneer in the integration of carbon compensation into the business model». However, that is by no means the only award received by the company. The Federal Government has awarded a CSR prize to exemplary and innovative companies who design their business operations to be socially, environmentally, and economically compatible in the long term. Among those companies was Munich tour operator Studiosus, which received the award in the «medium-sized enterprises» category. The jury's justification given for its decision was that Studiosus «carries out pioneering work in a difficult field and sets fixed goals for the implementation of corporate responsibility in its strategy».
