Our responsibility

We don't want adventure and sustainability to be a contradiction. Nature is freedom, the basis for experiences and a central part of the Off spirit. That's why we want to do our part to maintain the health of our ecosystem. Although our business model is in many cases more environmentally friendly than travel alternatives like
air travel, the camper travel model presents us with significant challenges: Each trip generates CO₂ emissions and tire wear is one of the main contributors to microplastics in the environment. It is therefore all the more important for us to sensitize our customers and employees to sustainable behavior and to set a good example.

Our strategy for greener travels

3 pillars for greater sustainability

  • Off is for everyone

    We create experiences that do not exclude anyone and we provide enough information to promote sustainable action.

  • Off is outside

    Camper trips mean freedom and nature. Environmental protection is important to us and we are constantly working to reduce our footprint.

  • Off makes meaningful decisions

    Off focuses on the efficient use of resources, transparency and partnerships in order to promote growth with sustainable responsibility.

Good to know

How is a ton of CO₂ produced when traveling?

  • For 1 tonne of CO₂, up to 5 people together can travel around 2,600 kilometres in one of our campers (e.g. Munich – Barcelona – and back) (source).
  • For the same amount of emissions, only 2.2 people fly from Munich to Barcelona and back in one plane (source).
  • First place: on a long-distance train, almost 8 people can travel from Munich to Barcelona and back for 1 tonne of CO₂ emissions.
  • To absorb 1 tonne of CO₂, a tree has to grow for 80 years
  • To stop climate change, the world’s 3 trillion remaining trees must be protected and 1 trillion additional trees must be planted (source).

What factors impact the CO₂ emissions of a camper trip?
