Travel 'Carbon' footprint

Your carbon impact is the sum of all emissions of CO2 (carbon dioxide), which are induced by your activities in a given time frame. You are now able to ESTIMATE your “carbon” impact and sponsor a Greenpop tree which supports our climate neutral initiates.

We have a custom made application ( brought to you by Sanlam) where all Sanlam Cape Town Marathon Runners are able to estimate their negative “carbon” impact and pledge to sponsor a tree to make a positive impact.

All participants will receive communications prior to the event to ensure that they fully understand the severity of the crisis and we will provide practical tips on what they can do to reduce their impact.
