At Explore, we always strive to be that little bit Better Than Yesterday. Every day. Having calculated the carbon footprint of every one of our trips, and every part of our operations, we’re now working hard to reduce those carbon footprints throughout the business, while continuing to maximise the positive impact that our small group trips have on the communities we visit and their economies.
Understanding how our customers and the general public feel about the impact of their holidays – environmental, social and economic – is also key to our sustainability strategy. This is our first annual sustainability index, in which we’ve surveyed over 9,000 international holidaymakers in the UK, Australia and North America about their attitudes to sustainable travel. We plan to revisit the same topics each year, and look forward to seeing how perceptions and behaviours change over time while we continue to drive down carbon and make positive impacts wherever we can in our pursuit of being Better Than Yesterday and ensuring travel is a force for good.
