We believe travel can support sustainable development around the world. To support this goal, we are committed to decreasing our environmental footprint, stimulating local economies, providing direct support for community projects, and teaching our students responsible travel practices. We journey to locations off the tourist track, buy goods from locally-owned businesses, partner with community organisations, and respect cultures and customs. Our programs actively support education, infrastructure development, job growth, and other community initiatives.
We have partnered with Sustainable Travel International, a global NGO, to evaluate our ongoing impact and to help us operate in the most responsible manner possible. We have codes of conduct in every country and have established sustainability teams to help us reach our targets.
