sustainability action plan
Pledge by the Management Committee
“We understand our responsibility towards a more sustainable world. We believe that it is the right of the future generations to experience the beauty and majesty of the planet as we have had the privilege of seeing it. We promise to stride towards making travel greener, smarter, developmental, and more responsible. Promote quality over quantity and make the right choices to achieve this.
We promise to take full cognizance of current and future economic, social and environmental impacts of our business, addressing the needs of our guests and without compromising on the quality of delivery. We pledge to spread awareness, educate and train all stakeholders associated with the organization.”
Tourism is an enabler and catalyst for economies across the globe, providing huge jobs opportunities for enterprise and advancement for local communities. However, over-tourism and irresponsible growth plans could have negative impacts on local communities, ecology and environment.
We believe that it is the right of the future generations to experience the beauty and majesty of the planet as we have had the privilege of seeing. With this in mind, we have taken on the responsibility to mitigate any economic, environmental, and social impact arising from tourism allowing prosperity for current and future generations.
The objective of the company is to develop a sustainable inbound tourism model without compromising on the quality of experience offered to our guests.
Sustainability measuring criteria for all our tours, excursions and experiences are based on the fundamentals of Sustainability as listed in an Action Plan adopted in 2020:
Respectful encounters with local traditions and communities
Caring for the environment
Caring for animal welfare
Human rights and providing a fair working environment
Economic inclusion of local communities
Ensuring consumer awareness
corporate social responsibility
Gender equality and women’s empowerment are fundamental pillars of just, equitable societies and are the bedrock of our values. At Distant Frontiers, we work at benefitting the local community, especially women. We are aware of its responsibility and take an active part in the design of sustainable development within its sphere of influence.
The alarming rise of global crises, coupled with the capacity of each crisis to severely impact tourists and travel ecosystems along with its stakeholders has led us to adopt a more conscious and rigorous approach toward addressing and ensuring the most appropriate action in any situation, by controlling the damages and restoring normalcy.
A Crisis Management Manual has been formally adopted to provide a focus on various levels of crisis and what to do in the event of such an occurrence.
