Sustainability Policy

As a travel company that interacts with various stakeholders in the tourism industry (consumers, guides, travel agencies, hotels, transport companies, restaurants and attractions), Travel Land understands its key role and impact on the sustainable development of tourism. Therefore, we are committed to sustainability. We are committed to following, implementing and promoting best practices in sustainable development to maximize the positive impact and minimize the negative impact of our operations on tourism, and to encourage our customers and partners to do the same.

Our sustainability policy is divided into 9 themes. Each topic consists of a set of principles and related practices:

1. Sustainability management and legal compliance
We are committed to implementing sustainable development management using an accessible and written sustainability policy aimed at reducing the negative social, cultural, economic and environmental impacts of the company’s activities; and includes aspects of the health and safety of employees.

3. Internal governance: environment and public relations
We are committed to protecting the environment and strengthening public relations in an effort to reduce our environmental impact.

4. Transport
We aim to ensure that the vehicles used on the tours do not cause more than average pollution. We believe that transport is an important aspect of sustainable tourism and we do our best to reduce the average level of pollution.

5. Accommodation
We aim to create a sustainable tourism supply chain. Partner accommodations play an important role in achieving this by stimulating and motivating the adoption of sustainable practices.

6. Tours and activities
We place a very high value on animal and community welfare and aim for tours that leave only a small footprint. We protect the authenticity of communities and the environment and are strongly against harming wildlife and pollution.
