Taking Action for a Better Tomorrow

At socialtours, the actions towards creating a better tomorrow follow the lines of environmental and cultural sensitiveness, and a commitment to spread benefits into the local economy. We have put into place different initiatives regarding this (most can be read about online)

We also actively communicate this in our stakeholder base, through yearly open houses, and most recently creating a demonstrable conscious space.

We want to take this several steps further and have now decided to become a signatory to the global “Tourism Declares Climate Emergency” initiative, and commit to the following points

1. Develop a ‘Climate Emergency Plan’

Developed and Adopted within 12 months

2. Share our commitment and progress publicly

Share our initial public declaration, your ‘Climate Emergency Plan’, and update on progress against our targets each year.

3. Cut carbon emissions

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. 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.

4. Work together

Encourage suppliers and partners to make the same declaration; share best practice amongst peers; and actively participate in the Tourism Declares community.

5. Advocate for change

Recognise the need for system change across the industry, and call for urgent regulatory action to accelerate the transition towards zero carbon air travel.

I am usually never in the office, and my colleagues call me the Tourist. I think strategically, and align the company to the future. I enjoy developing new experiences the most, and of course nothing can beat leading a group on a unique journey through Nepal. Uh Oh I forgot, I would rather be in the mountains!
