Our Foundation


Adventure World is proud to be an active partner and supporter of the Treadright Foundation's sustainability work and projects. 

Created as a joint initiative between the Travel Corporation's (TTC) family of brands, the Treadright Foundation is a not-for-profit that works to help ensure the environment and communities we visit remain for generations to come. To date, Treadright has supported more than 35 sustainable tourism projects worldwide.

Treadright's guiding principal is to encourage sustainable tourism development through conservation, leadership and support for communities. We encourage each of our partners to use this principle to guide all of their actions, whether at our regional offices or when taking guests around the world. 

By providing grants to organisations that encourage sustainability in different destinations, we hope to maintain the natural attractions across the world that define each unique region. Foundation priorities are set by the Steering Committee, which includes sustainability leaders like Céline Cousteau and Costas Christ.

RESPONSIBLE TOURISM & TRAVEL 


At Adventure World, we promote responsible travel to areas that conserve the natural environment and improve the well-being of the local indigenous people. We believe that responsible tourism promotes positive cultural and environmental ethics and practices. Understanding the potential harm that can come from promoting tourism through many of the delicate environments in which we operate is reflected on our ideology of 'leave no trace' tourism. Working with our local ground operators, several who have won the prestigious AITO (Association of Independent Tour Operators) Responsible Tourism Award, we aim to promote responsible, sustainable tourism in all areas we visit. Learn more about ourcommitment to responsible travel and tourism.
