Environmental Sustainability

nature, meadow, mountains

Our workplace, classroom and playground are the mountains, forests, meadows and streams – and we believe strongly that through supporting education and experiences in these environments, we can foster real understanding, responsibility and protection for these wonderful settings.

We are committed to minimising the impact of our work and tours- both environmentally and socially - ensuring that if anything, we are leaving communities and the environment in a better place.

We do this as follows:

Reducing our energy consumption: modern and energy efficient living/ office space with latest technology for energy efficiency

Using sustainable energy sources for heating and power (energy through wooden pellets, electricity from local renewable energy source)

Designing events and tours which have an inherently low carbon footprint – e.g. choosing public transport over private transfers, avoiding over-touristed areas

Working with partners with shared values – from our website hosts to hotels and guesthouses

Small group travel
