Providing authentic experiences, promoting responsible travel and developing worldwide relationships are all part of our vision for sustainable tourism. We at Journey Latin America love the continent that we send our travellers to and, since we were founded 37 years ago, we have always endeavoured to protect its incredible places and people.
And it doesn’t stop there: we understand the importance of eco-friendly practices in all parts of our business – whether it’s offsetting carbon emissions to minimise the impact of long-haul travel or simply recycling our waste paper, we strive to operate responsibly in everything we do.
We’ve nurtured strong relationships with our local suppliers who all share our vision and agree to:
• Uphold a commitment to local communities and their development through fair employment policies and responsible energy use.
• Ensure that benefits from tourism filter down to local communities.
• Inform us of any services which can be recognised for outstanding commitment to sustainability in order to help us spread the word.
Finally, we think it’s great to be recognised for hard work so when AITO – the first travel industry association to incorporate a commitment to sustainable travel and green tourism into its business charter – named us as one of the first operators to win the maximum Sustainable Travel award, we were naturally delighted.
