At The Travel Corporation, we understand that travel matters; it allows us to explore the world and gain a deeper understanding of each destination, its history and culture, through enriching experiences. We also recognize that it is our responsibility to help protect the places we visit and take care of the world around us.

Established and funded as a joint initiative between The Travel Corporation’s family of brands, The TreadRight Foundation is a not-for-profit that works to help ensure the environment and communities we visit remain vibrant and preserved for generations to come. To date, TreadRight has supported more than 35 sustainable tourism projects worldwide.

TreadRight’s guiding principle is to encourage sustainable tourism development through conservation, leadership and support for communities. We encourage each of our partners to use this principle to guide all of their actions, whether at our regional offices or when taking guests around the world.

By providing grants to organisations that encourage sustainability in different destinations, we hope to maintain the natural attractions across the world that define each unique region. Foundation priorities are set by the Steering Committee, which includes sustainability leaders like Céline Cousteau and Costas Christ.

TreadRight’s past project partners include WWF, Conservation International and The National Trust in the UK. Current initiatives include sponsoring the National Geographic Society’s “World Legacy Awards”, WildAid and inspiring wildlife advocates lik eTerri Irwin. The foundation has recently launched new project partnerships with WildAid and The Wilderness Foundation as part of the global effort to stop rhino poaching in Africa.

As a leading Global Travel Company and as part of the global community, we have the opportunity and responsibility to positively impact the destinations in which we operate and we are committed to leading in this by example. Through our Corporate Social Responsibility practices, we are working to embed the principles of sustainability into our core business. Led by a dedicated CSR team and a centralized process, all of our 10,000 employees and senior management across the globe are deeply invested in each stage of this process of measuring and monitoring impact. Recognizing that this is a lifelong journey, we have begun working methodically across offices, brands and regions.

Taking advantage of several Staff Engagement programs, our employees are actively involved in making their own offices more CSR compliant. Currently they are focused on optimizing water and material consumption, workplace health and safety and volunteerism.

Our team members can also take paid time away each year to volunteer around their own communities. Their efforts across approximately 70 projects are distributed over a wide range of activities. We endeavour to work towards building on these achievements. Our passion for having a positive impact on the people and places around us has spilled over from our workplaces, to projects and initiatives that we engage in beyond the office.
