UN’s Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015 the United Nations defined 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. They are a call for action for a collaborative improvement of the current situation towards a better world for our people and our planet.
We are committed to taking responsibility for our actions and converting our existence into a benefit for the destination we operate in, rather than harming it. We are looking beyond our results to become leaders of change and inspire others towards a more sustainable development.
We assure that all our partners are aware of our standards & practices and comply with them. Furthermore, we are working hard to involve all suppliers in the processes to achieve a long-term development in their own responsible travel practices as well.
As a local tour operator, we see that we can immediately contribute to 8 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
