Role in programme(s):


In the framework of the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative, Far Horizon Tours commits to:
  • Encourage partners in the supply chain and at destination level to join the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative. They will do this by encouraging their service providers to adhere to the norms that they themselves subscribe to and have worked to eliminate usage of plastic water bottles and plastic garbage bags by their transport, guides and accommodation providers. Far Horizon Tours set a target of 50 service providers to be encouraged to join GTPI.
  • Advise and guide partners in the supply chain and at destination level to better manage plastics in their operations through practices, criteria, standards, and/or policies. 
  • Communicate successes to partners, suppliers, travelers, and key local stakeholders by providing written instructions, doing on-site training for service providers over next two years and then asking destination teams and tour leading teams to do regular reporting. 
  • Publicly report on implementation of commitments above.
