Reducing the environmental impact of our business is at the core of what we do. We’re committed to eliminating all avoidable single-use plastics in both our offices and on the road by 2022. And that’s just the beginning. We also support projects striving to keep our oceans and coastlines clean and are on the road to net zero.



Since the launch of our sustainability strategy, global action on the world’s response to climate change has continued to advance. We have matched that advancement through our decision to commit to net zero.


Our Climate Action Plan outlines how we will reach net zero GHG emissions across the value chain by 2050 from a 2019 baseline year, with accompanying near-term and long-term targets that are validated by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi). Our primary focus is to decarbonize, the most effective means to address climate change. To enable that, our parent company The Travel Corporation has established the following validated science-based reduction targets:


Net Zero Target: Our Sustainability Goal 1

  • Reach net zero GHG emissions across the value chain by 2050 from a 2019 baseline year


Near-Term Targets (2030)

  • Reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 46.2% by 2030 from a 2019 base year

  • Reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods and services, business travel, and use of sold products 27.5% within the same timeframe


Long-Term Target (2050)

  • Reduce absolute scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions 90% by 2050 from a 2019 base year


To cement our commitment to decarbonize, in 2022 we launched a Carbon Fund – a fund dedicated to financing initiatives to reduce the carbon emissions of our business. This fund is a bold step towards prioritizing the planet and will be used solely for initiatives that contribute to our net zero journey and help restore our planet. Progress made by this fund will be reported on in future Impact Reports.

To further support our journey to net zero, our TreadRight Foundation will prioritize and invest in nature- based solutions developed to address climate change as well as the rapid loss of biodiversity. Learn more about TreadRight and our projects.

We encourage you to read about our carbon measurement methodology, learn more about our Climate Action efforts, and view our recent Impact Report at our Impact Hub.



African Travel is dedicated to removing unnecessary single-use plastics

The Travel Corporation (TTC) remains dedicated to removing as many unnecessary single-use plastics from its worldwide supply chains, which provide services and facilities to our thousands of immersive trips and experiences delivered in over 70 countries around the world, every day.

So far, we have and continue to reduce our footprints; these include most unnecessary single-use plastics realistically and appropriately on all of our African safaris, within all Red Carnation Hotels, onboard all of our Uniworld ships and within our TTC offices. We still have a long way to go. We remain committed and dedicated to achieving this goal by December 2022 and will keep updating as we go.
