Our Green Policy


Up Close Tours strives to conform to eco-tourism and we have implemented a number of measures to limit the impact on our environment

They are:

1. Office equipment

We use Dell PowerEdge Energy Smart servers to save energy

We use fax-to-email electronic services rather than fax machines, thereby preventing roughly 0.03 tonnes of CO2 emissions and saving approximately 3,500 A4 paper pages annually

We do not use air conditioning to cool our servers; this is done through natural means using a spacious, darkened and well-ventilated computer room

Office equipment is switched off overnight

We reduce office-generated waste by recycling

2. Our Tours

We encourage our clients to select the WALK and HIKE tour options which make minimum use of motor vehicles

We support local communities by including these areas in our tours

We promote locally-manufactured goods

Our WALK wine tasting experience eliminates the need for lengthy vehicle trips
