Green Policy


Looking after the environment means everything to  us.

We are passionate about the outdoors and sharing the beautiful wild lands of Scotland with our partners and customers. We also realise that this access comes at a cost. At Beyond Adventure our green policy is a central thread that runs through the core of everything we do.

Carbon Offsetting 

In 2019 we made a pledge to offset our carbon emissions by planting trees in the Scottish Highlands. 

Starting this work with the excellent Trees for Life, we bought and managed a grove of native Trees.

In 2024, we are making a bigger commitment working with Call of the Wild .

Liberty and Hamish at COTW are rewilding  their estate, by planting trees with them we not only offset our carbon emissions but also create some new habitats for wildlife.

Litter Clean Ups

We’re proud to be recognised as an official Planet Patrol partner, helping to deliver clean ups in our community as part of a global network. Planet Patrol was set up in 2015 by adventurer and environmentalist, Lizzie Carr (aka Lizzie Outside) who paddle boarded 400 miles - the length of England -  raise awareness of the damaging impact plastic pollution in our waterways, recording everything she encountered in a global map. 

Fast forward to present day and Planet Patrol has more than 150 official reps worldwide and alongside efforts from volunteers we’ve helped remove almost 300,000 pieces of litter from nature. Everything is recorded in the Plastic Patrol app, adding to a global evidence base that is used to campaign at industry and government level. 

In 2024 we are helping Planet Patrol combat water pollution by carrying out regular water quality resting on the River Tay.

In 2021 we started working with Keep Scotland Beautiful to launch their Upstream Battle Campaign. The main purpose of this is to reduce the amount of marine litter getting transported from inland waterways. 

As part of the Upstream Battle Campaign, we work with local schools to organise litter picks and to help educate the pupils on the importance of keeping the environment tidy.

Using the Wild Land of Scotland

As a commercial operator we feel the weight of responsibility to keep to Best Practice at all times and to lead by example.

To minimise our impact and any damage we might cause we:

Aim to be responsible visitors to an area and to camp with a Leave No Trace ethic

Our vehicles are now modern and cause less pollution and achieve higher mileages than older vehicles

Encourage and educate people on how to travel lightly.

Choose what locations to use to stay clear of any over used areas and to make sure  we do not cause any access issues.

At our Base

In the Office, we work hard to be responsible and aim to follow the mantra of reduce, reuse and recycle. We:

Recycle all paper, cardboard and plastic used in our operations.

Stay away from single use plastics and containers wherever possible.

Have recycling bins for cardboard, paper, food and plastics.

Reuse as much packaging as possible.

Recycle all old equipment that cannot be repurposed.
