Travel Channel is committed to maintaining our integrity, living our values and ensuring that we’re fulfilling the core purpose of our business. This being, to operate in a responsible manner, incorporating the principles of sustainable development in the way we provide our travellers with real life experiences. However, these values are more than just words on a page; they are ingrained in the culture and daily operations of our office and tour. In addition, we expect our staff and travellers to demonstrate the principles of responsible travel – respecting people, cultures and local environments; distribution of wealth; in good will and cross-cultural sharing; and in contributing to sustainable development.
- To ensure we’re consistently working how does a counterclaim help support a position in an argumentative essay? towards protecting the environment and using resources in an efficient, fair and responsible way.
- To ensure that our trips are designed in a way that limits the physical impact on the destinations we visit, so that they may be enjoyed by many generations to come.
- To protect human rights within our sphere of influence and to ensure that all parties impacted by our business including staff, travelers, local communities and other vendors, are treated with fairness and respect.
- To work with our travelers on issues around responsible practices in order to promote justice and equity across our global community and protect our most vulnerable societies.
Taking a Global View
In order for sustainability to remain embedded in our operations, we take a holistic view of our business and its various points of impact. This means looking beyond our balance sheet and to the areas to which our business is intrinsically linked: the environment, society, economy and governance/ethics. We want to ensure that we’re taking responsibility for our impact in these areas and contributing to, rather than diminishing, their health and value.
