Make Travel Matter
By supporting people, wildlife & the planet for generations to come
We recognize the impact travel has on our world. Powered by our not-for-profit foundation, TreadRight, we are making public our commitment to Make Travel Matter for the better. Inspired by leading destinations across the globe, every one of our team members and sister companies worldwide are pledging to make travel matter. Our pledge stands for people, for wildlife, and for our planet.
Travel is an incredible gift. It has the ability to open our eyes to the unique cultures and spellbinding beauty of the natural world. But with this gift comes a responsibility – to protect the world as we know it. TreadRight's mission is clear; to have a positive impact on the people and communities we visit, to protect wildlife and marine life, and to care for the planet we call home.
A not-for-profit organization created as a joint initiative between The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) family of brands, The TreadRight Foundation has supported some 50-plus sustainable tourism projects worldwide to date.
TreadRight is committed to encouraging the cultures and traditions of the communities we visit to thrive. We seek to enable communities to see true benefit from tourism through economic empowerment. We do this through our support of micro-enterprises, and community-based tourism initiatives that build positive futures for community members and their families.
The world’s wildlife is balancing on a dangerous precipice, so it is our responsibility to help protect some of these species most at risk from extinction. Partnering with leading wildlife organizations, we work to help protect and rehabilitate some of the elephant, rhino and big cat populations around the world, whilst also educating our guests on ethical wildlife experiences.
Together with The Travel Corporation, we’ve committed to eliminating all avoidable single-use plastics in both our offices and out on the road by 2022. And that’s just the beginning. In 2018 we introduced our e-docs program offering our guests the option of receiving travel documents digitally, replacing the need for paper. For every guest that does, a tree is planted in their name.
