Understanding the Carbon Footprint of Your Sneakout Stay
At Sneakout, we're passionate about sustainable travel. We believe in empowering you with information to make eco-conscious choices. Here's a breakdown of how we calculate the approximate carbon footprint when you book a camping or caravan park stay through Sneakout:
1. Electricity Consumption
Your stay's energy usage matters. We assess the electricity consumption of various appliances on the property, including lighting, heating, and any electronics. Each appliance's carbon emission factor (gCO2e/kWh) contributes to the overall electricity-related carbon footprint.
Here's a table listing the carbon emissions of various appliances in a stay. Please note that the values provided are approximate and can vary based on factors like energy efficiency, usage patterns, and location. Carbon emissions are measured in grams of CO2 equivalent per kilowatt-hour (gCO2e/kWh):
Caravan or Camper Van
2. Heating and Cooling Systems
The type of heating and cooling systems employed on the property influences carbon emissions. Sneakout prioritises listings with energy-efficient systems and eco-friendly insulation, reducing the environmental impact of these essential features.
3. Water Conservation
Conserving water is vital for sustainability. Properties adopting water-saving initiatives, such as towel and linen reuse programs, contribute to lowering the carbon footprint associated with laundry-related energy consumption.
4. Additional Considerations
Beyond electricity and water, we consider waste management practices, material sourcing, and overall energy efficiency. These factors provide a comprehensive assessment of the property's environmental impact.
Guest Contribution to Sustainability
When you choose a Sneakout listing, you actively participate in promoting sustainability. Here's how you, as a guest, contribute:

Engage in water-saving initiatives, like reusing towels and linens, to minimise water and energy usage in laundry.
Adhere to the host's waste management guidelines for responsible recycling and disposal.
Offsetting Carbon Emissions
Recognizing that complete elimination of carbon emissions may be challenging, we offer carbon offset programs. Guests can choose to offset their stay's carbon footprint by contributing to verified carbon reduction initiatives.
