Our Environmental Duty &

Ethics

"Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more"

We aim to be as ethical and eco-friendly as possible, as should all businesses. We believe to achieve this we need to be honest and identify what we are doing right and what needs improvement. Below is our full disclosure. If you have any ideas you wish to discuss with us how we can improve, adapt or change anything then please let us know.

What BEExpeditions does right:

  • Our office is based at Halton Mill, powered by the river Lune hydro-power and solar panels.

  • We plan to annually offset our carbon usage for all our expeditions, we calculate this by totalling our milage in the minibus, work out how much carbon is spent, then donate the total to (BMC Climate Project). 

  • We bought a newer minibus that emits Zero emissions standard Euro 6.

  • Our events can carry up to 15 people, we hope this is 10 or so fewer cars that need to travel to the same location.

  • We recycle everything and anything.

  • We vet all the companies we work with to make sure they have high environmental values, we also try to work with local companies where we can.

  • We promote and teach about a healthy environment on our walks.

What BEExpeditions can do to be better:

  • Our biggest pollutant is by far our minibus, although it emits Zero emissions it still runs on diesel. We looked at electric but there are none available in the UK currently and hybrid are currently unaffordable and only fixing half the problem, we are hoping Hydrogen Fuel will soon take off.

  • The bank we process through invests in fossil fuels, we are looking at changing banks soon, but currently, it's difficult as they are the most accessible for us.

  • The merchandise we sell is not yet eco friendly. The T-shirts we sell are 100% organic cotton, the hats and buffs are not, once this stock is sold we will only sell 100% organic.
