Protecting our planet, its people and wildlife has always been at the heart of our journeys. And we’ve made some big commitments as part of our 5-year sustainability strategy How We Tread Right, across climate action, sustainable food production, responsible consumption, diversity, equity and inclusion, and animal welfare.
Today we’ve released our second annual Impact Report, so you can see how we’re progressing against our goals and how we are making a difference. Here’s some of our progress at a glance:
GOAL 1: Reach net zero GHG emissions by 2050 – We’re the first global tour operator to have our near-term, long-term and net zero targets validated by the Science Based Targets initiative, and last year we launched our industry-first Carbon Fund, to support our decarbonization journey
