Aerosaurus is committed to doing its part in maintaining a sustainable environment and complies with all environmental legislation and regulations.
Ways in which we try to reduce our impact on the environment include:
Part of all new employees orientation includes a brief on being environmentally aware – turning lights off, turning of all electronic equipment at the end of a working day etc. Aerosaurus also uses energy saving light bulbs throughout the premises.
All the champagne bottles used during our balloon flights are recycled. In addition Aerosaurus Balloons recycles printer ink cartridges and separates its rubbish – we even have a compost bin!
Nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon dioxide (CO2) are one of the main contributors to poor air quality in urban areas and global warming. Aerosaurus’s petrol Land Rovers are converted to Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) this is a clean and convenient source of energy and helps reduce emissions.
Since 2008 we have planted over 50 trees to help offset our carbon emissions. We are currently looking into ways of reducing our carbon footprint further through various longer term schemes. Come back soon for more details!
