Since our inception in 1989, responsible business has been at the heart of what we do – both on our trips and in each of our global offices. In fact, we believe we were the first global tour operator to have a dedicated Responsible Business department.
We're committed to remaining an industry leader in responsible business, and advocate for a range of important issues from climate change to human rights and to animal welfare. In 2020 we declared a climate emergency as part of Tourism Declares.
We realise our impact is stronger in numbers, and we work with a range of global partners to develop initiatives aimed at helping people and the planet to thrive.
