Green facts: G Adventures has been a pioneer in responsible travel by operating under the belief that travel is an exchange, not a commodity.
Their responsible and sustainable initiatives include:
- Establishing the Planeterra Foundation in 2003 - their non-profit partner dedicated to ensuring communities touched by tourism benefit from the opportunities it provides. Planeterra manages over 50 social enterprises on all seven continents, that benefit women, at-risk youth, and rural and indigenous communities.
- G Local: Keeping things local on their trips by working with small, locally owned businesses rather than big international chains, supporting local entrepreneurs and small businesses.
- Animal welfare, child welfare, and responsible travel with indigenous people.
- Disaster relief initiatives.
G Adventures’ National Geographic Journeys help fund their community development initiatives worldwide. They also support the National Geographic Society’s non-profit work in conservation, exploration, research, and education.
The Jane Goodall Collection by G Adventures is a collection of wildlife-focused tours endorsed by legendary primatologist Dr Jane Goodall. These small-group adventures give travellers the opportunity to explore the shores of the Galápagos Islands, the Amazon and its riverbanks, and the forests of Uganda, to see some fascinating animals, while respecting their freedom.
