How We Tread Right
At Insight Vacations, we believe travel can – and must – be a force for good. This positive impact starts long before your vacation begins. Our print brochures are produced from 100% recycled fiber, contributing to the conservation of resources and the environment. Both in our offices, and on our trips, we are eliminating single use plastics. When you book with us, you will receive your documents electronically. Thanks to travelling paper free, you’re supporting our sustainability efforts to reduce our environmental impact wherever possible.
Insight Vacations is a founding member of the TreadRight Foundation, a joint initiative created by the brands within The Travel Corporation (TTC) almost 15 years ago to ensure our impact through tourism is positive. Our ethos to #MakeTravelMatter guides our decision-making at every level of our business.
How We Tread Right is TTC's new five-year sustainability strategy, which sets the mandate on sustainability at Insight Vacations and our sister travel companies. Our strategy is based on 11 measurable goals, anchored to the United Nations' Global Goals, and were developed to address Insight Vacations' impact on People, the Planet and Wildlife.
Community Support and Cultural Preservation
Connect to local communities on your trip with Make Travel Matter experiences that support employment and the area's local heritage. Our strategy also supports greater diversity and inclusion at Insight Vacations and our global give-back efforts.
Sustainability and Conservation
We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our business and safeguarding the future of our planet. Initiatives include: targeting climate change, sustainable food production and responsible consumption through carbon management, renewable energy, the food cycle, waste reduction, and the elimination of single-use plastics.
Conservation and Protection
Partnering with leading wildlife organizations, we work to help protect and rehabilitate elephant, rhino and big cat populations around the world. Our ethical wildlife experiences are led by TreadRight’s Animal Welfare Policy.
We Support Australia's NSW Rural Fire Service
We’re proud to be associated with the contribution made by our parent company, The Travel Corporation (TTC), to the NSW Rural Fire Service – a donation of $100K, which was made in December 2019. The danger they put themselves in on a daily basis to protect the community and its surrounding area is heroic. Our hearts go out to the loss of life, property, wildlife and nature from Australia’s bushfire tragedy. Funds go towards technology and necessities such as radios, floodlights, GPS for the trucks, maintenance, fuel, food and training.
