Commitments:

As a mission, values and purpose-led organisation, we care deeply about the impact of our experiences on people and the planet. We believe that individuals and businesses have a responsibility to take radical action against the climate emergency. We also recognise that as most of our travellers are educators, students and youth sports teams, we have a unique opportunity and a duty of care to educate and inspire the next generation. Being a New Zealand born tourism business operating globally, we acknowledge that the entire tourism industry needs to scale up our climate action as ultimately, the cost of inaction will be, in the long run, larger than the cost of any other crisis. Over the coming three years, we will be committed to significantly reducing our impact on the environment by undertaking the following actions: -Develop a ‘Climate Emergency Plan’ within the next 12 months, which sets out our intentions to reduce carbon emissions over the next decade. -Share an initial public declaration of our ‘Climate Emergency Plan’, and update on progress each year. -Accept current IPCC advice stating the need to cut global carbon emissions to 55% below 2017 levels by 2030 in order to keep the planet within 1.5 degrees of warming. We’ll ensure our ‘Climate Emergency Plan’ represents actions designed to achieve this as a minimum, through delivering transparent, measurable and increasing reductions in the total carbon emissions per customer arising from our operations and the travel services sold by us. -Encourage our suppliers and partners to make the same declaration; sharing best practice amongst peers; and actively participate in the Tourism Declares community -Advocate for change. We recognise the need for system change across the industry to accelerate a just transition towards carbon-free tourism.
