Mark Duckmanton, CEO

After 18 years working in technology, Mark made a career change to travel in early 2019, acknowledging a clear correlation and opportunity to combine his love of platforms and digital with his passion for travel and the planet.

Two years in, and as a B2B and B2C tourism operator, Mark identified the impact on travel that we, along with our peers, wanted to address. However, the barriers of complexity stalled progress. Path Net Zero removes that complexity to enable us all to make a positive impact on our planet and our travellers.

Dan’s career started at The Economist, where integrity and profitability go hand-in-hand. This start showed Dan businesses can be socially responsible and commercially viable. Dan created Path DMC in 2009, a travel business committed to the triple bottom line ideology of People- Planet-Profit. As Dan pursued innovative ways to enhance Path DMC, becoming carbon neutral was a natural progression.

Struggling to find an accurate carbon measurement system for tour operators and DMCs was what triggered Path Net Zero’s genesis, delivering instant positive change to combat the climate crisis. With over 20 years in the industry, Dan excels at understanding the needs and expectations of the travel sector.

Noel has lived and worked on four continents guiding marketing and product teams for some of the world’s leading sporting goods brands. After 20 years in the sports industry, an opportunity to pivot to the travel sector was too enticing to pass up.

 He has built product and operational teams in over ten countries and managed a portfolio of 28 countries while directing a successful marketing department. Path Net Zero is the evolution of his experience in travel, his desire to do the right thing for people and the planet, and for all to strive to be more accountable for sustaining the wonders this world provides us.

Founded by Tourism Professionals

We formed Path Net Zero after battling with the complexity, myriad of data sources and ultimately learning how our products and services contribute to the climate emergency.

In the formative days, our team of experienced travel industry professionals sought to partner with a carbon-conscious organization.

During this time it became increasingly clear that delivering carbon-neutral trips was complicated and challenging. The process was clunky, loaded with multiple forms of data, unverified sources, greenwashing, and most apparent, there was no one-stop, end-to-end solution to measure and offset a trip’s carbon emissions.

After identifying the need for a holistic solution, the vision to form Path Net Zero took shape. Tenaciously the data was collated, facts were identified and verified, measurement tools simplified, and the ability to curate and personalized carbon offsetting evolved.

Companies and individuals must stand united on the Path to reducing the impact of carbon emissions. We must all hear the call to action, embrace the mission, believe we can make a difference, and use the experience and technologies of Path Net Zero to be active participants in fighting the enormous climate emergency.

Path Net Zero is committed to empowering the travel sector to positively impact the planet by equipping the industry with a simple, intuitive solution to measure carbon emissions and offset them in one streamlined platform.

Travel, sustainability, and securing the planet for future travellers are part of our DNA! And it can be in yours as well.
