Mission Statement

Our Mission: Improving lives and protecting places through travel and tourism. Our Belief: Travel and tourism can protect the world’s natural and cultural riches and create economic opportunity. Our Strategy: Because it’s among the world’s largest industries, tourism has the potential to alleviate poverty, hunger, gender inequality and environmental degradation in the world’s most vulnerable regions. But that takes vision, collaboration and a collective road map so that all the relevant players--including government ministries, businesses and community leaders and travelers--have a clear path toward change. In destinations around the world, we bring people together and equip them with tools, support and guidance they need to become change agents, empowered to protect the places they call home.

Description

Humans are a nomadic species. Driven by our need for recreation, contemplation, connection and reflection, we are on the go. Besides being the world’s largest industry travel and tourism has enormous and unsustainable impact on energy, water, land and food use.

At Sustainable Travel International, we believe that people’s inherent wanderlust, their desire for new experiences and concern for the places they care for most can inspire the protection of the world’s natural and cultural bounty and generate economic opportunity in destinations that rely on visitors.

Since 2002, we have been charting a new course for travel and tourism -- one that leads to a healthier environment, greater economic opportunity, social justice and the protection of natural and cultural resources.
