In support of the above, we will work to:

  • Continually improve our environmental performance, specifically by reducing our carbon emissions at our bases and office premises.
  • Optimize our vacations’ environmental, economic and social impact, by embedding sustainability into our supply chain and initiating activities that protect and restore the natural environment and enhance local livelihoods
