Based on honesty, integrity and flexibility, China Highlights is proud to be a company that pays close attention to our planet and practices corporate social responsibility.
We launch the Eco Day Program to invite our customers to join in. One step, makes difference.
Transportation is one of the largest sources of emissions that contribute to air pollution and global warming. As a good environment is what the tourism industry relies on, China Highlights would like to tackle the issue of vehicle emissions as a part of our corporate social responsibility. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact, both on our trips and in our offices.
We are launching our Eco Day Program to encourage our customers to use public transport on city tour days for reasonable distances.
According to your needs, the distances, and the weather etc. on that day, your guide may choose taking bikes, the subway, buses, or walking. In this way, you will not only be making efforts towards environmental protection, but also get a deeper insight into local people's lives.
CO2 amount: 0 KG | Carbon amount: 0 KG
For your reference: the average distance traveled on a city tour of Beijing or Shanghai is about 70-80 km a day, about 10 litres petrol are needed and for Xi'an and Guilin it is 50-60 km a day, about 8 litres petrol are needed.
Using one day public transportation equals planting 3-4 trees on the planet.
Customers will get 100 USD cash (or 650 RMB) as reward.
Customers can choose to take the reward, or pass to your friends' China trip or donate it to panda preservation work at Dujiangyan Panda Base.
Here we show photos and videos of customers taking part in Eco Day Programs and China Highlights staff using public transport.
