Protecting the Environment

We aim to contribute to the preservation of natural and built environments in the destinations we visit, and to reduce the negative impacts our operations may have on the environment. We do this by minimizing the use of resources (energy, water, waste) and reducing our carbon emissions in our offices, on our trips, and in the destinations we visit whenever possible.

In our offices

  • Using public transportation to and from work.
  • Implementing energy conservation initiatives (such as more efficient lighting/equipment).
  • Ensuring better waste management by using ‘avoid, reuse, reduce, recycle’ principles.
  • Adopting better purchasing practices (eg. sourcing products with post-consumer recycled content).
  • Implementing water-saving initiatives to reduce consumption 
  • Selling locally produced organic, biodynamic and natural wines

On our tours

  • Using private, locally owned transport.
  • Offering incentives for tours using hybrid or electric transport
  • Limiting group sizes (average of 2-10 ppl)
  • Encouraging travelers to minimize their waste by bringing their own water thermos, while reducing their overall consumption 
  • Inspiring our suppliers to adopt more sustainable practices or choosing suppliers who already have greener practices in place.
  • Prioritizing Green Key sustainable hotels for our clients
  • Eating at local establishments (limiting food miles); while encouraging clients to avoid ordering any endangered or threatened species (especially fish).
  • Shopping at local markets offering local produce, items, souvenirs etc.
  • Ensuring that comprehensive details of each tour is available in a paper-free format, while sending only our 2 page fully customized client itinerary by post.

In the destinations, we visit

  • Understanding the environmental issues in destinations and minimizing our direct impact.
  • Using a ‘take in, take back out’ system of waste management.
  • Minimizing the use of intrusive devices (such as lights) and keeping noise to a minimum at culturally significant sites and other sensitive places.
  • Discouraging travelers from touching, contaminating or impacting fragile environments.
