Sustainable Travel

Improving life for people, places and planet 

After almost 50-years of delivering world-class adventures, trips and tours, we know better than most how awe-inspiring, horizon-expanding, and life-enriching travel can be. And at Exodus Travels we firmly believe travel should improve life for the people and places we visit too.

So our People, Places & Planet plan lays out the ways in which we persistently and passionately seek to improve life through travel — for the places we visit, people we meet , and the planet we explore.

To do this, we scrutinise every aspect of our business: how we operate our core business; how we create and run trips; what we fund through our Foundation. Rather than merely meetting guidelines and maintaining standards, we’re actively seeking ways to have a positive impact.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

We reached out to our whole wide community of responsible adventures – our team, clients and partners on the ground - to understand which areas of social and environmental impact Exodus Travels should prioritise. As a result, our People, Places & Planet plan focuses on working towards six key UN Sustainable Development Goals:

Goal 8 - Decent work and economic growth
Goal 11 - Sustainable cities and communities
Goal 12 - Responsible consumption and production
Goal 13 - Climate action
Goal 14 - Life below water
Goal 15 - Life on land

The Exodus Travels Foundation

Our Foundation enables us to extend our vision of harnessing the positive power of travel for the people and places we visit. Thanks to the generosity of our clients and partners and the breadth of our networks, we are able to support a number of community-based projects which improve life in hard-to-reach places.
